Get Ready for the 2018 European Materials Research Society Spring Meeting With Research from ACS Publications

ACS Publications is heading to Strasbourg, France, this month for the 2018 European Materials Research Society Spring Meeting and Exhibit. The conference, held June 18-22, will feature a variety of important speakers and illustrious authors from ACS Publications journals, including plenary speakers Xinliang Feng and Thomas W. Ebbesen. The event promises to be eye-opening and thought-provoking for everyone in attendance.

That said, the E-MRS learning experience needn’t be confined to within the walls of the venue. That’s why ACS Publications staff compiled a reading list of recent research papers and eBooks that will be interesting and useful for materials scientists, even if you can’t make it to France this year.
