The Materials Science & Technology (MS&T) technical meeting and exhibition is the long-standing, recognized forum for fostering technical innovation at the intersection of materials science, engineering, and application. Each year, MS&T brings together scientists, engineers, students, suppliers, and business leaders to discuss current research and technical applications and to shape the future of materials science and technology.
The event’s unmatched technical program addresses structure, properties, processing, and performance across the materials community. Its exhibition showcases a wide variety of equipment and services to the automotive, aerospace, instrumentation, medical, oilfield, and energy industries.
MS&T is organized by a joint partnership of leading materials science-related societies: the American Ceramic Society (ACerS), the Association for Iron and Steel Technology (AIST), and The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS).

The NSH Annual Symposium/Convention forms the largest educational event of its kind working to advance and promote the histology profession. NSH is the premier source of learning, knowledge and future-oriented research for histology professionals. Attendance provides resources, education, ideas and advocacy to enhance the performance in the laboratory and ultimately the best patient care.
SfN’s 50th annual meeting is the premier venue for neuroscientists to present
emerging science, learn from experts, forge collaborations with peers, explore
new tools and technologies, and advance careers.
Join 30,000 colleagues from more than 70 countries at the world’s
largest marketplace of ideas and tools for global neuroscience.
46th International Symposium for Testing and Failure Analysis (ISTFA)
At ISTFA, you can learn from the experts, network with people who can support your work, explore the latest apps and tools for the failure analysis lab, and become a knowable presenter yourself, teaching others. ISTFA offers opportunities for all levels of proficiency, from the Next Generation of engineers, who seek to boost their starting career, to expert engineers, who seek insight into Next Generation challenges already today.
The Rise of MEMS and 3D Failure Analysis
MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems) sense physical phenomena and trigger action, and they have enabled a slew of useful, essential, and fun applications—the most common of which are found in smart phones, cars, printers, and wearables—but the application space keeps growing as costs decrease and new MEMS sensors are developed. Advances in packaging technologies, including wafer bonding, 3D (TSV/heterogeneous) integration, and die stacking have been essential in helping MEMS sensors proliferate. Where are MEMS going—new sensors, new applications, new fabrication and packaging processes? What challenges are created for failure analysis in packaging and new applications?
