On behalf of the Microscopy Society of America and the Microanalysis Society, we invite you to join us, in-person, August 1-5, 2021, for Microscopy & Microanalysis 2021 in Pittsburgh, PA.
With a distinguished industrial history, Pittsburgh has transformed itself into a great summer destination with diverse, interesting and walkable neighborhoods. Combining comfortable temperatures in the 80s, with lots of outdoor and riverside activities, as well as a healthy pub and foodie culture, we know you will enjoy a great blend of science and social activities! At this time, MSA and MAS are planning to move forward with the in-person meeting. However, in this age of COVID-19, there is uncertainty on the public health situation next year. If the conditions do not improve and we are unable to meet in person, we plan to bring a vibrant and outstanding virtual meeting that builds off our experience from M&M 2020. We will create an even better virtual experience featuring platform and poster presentations, a robust trade show experience, and opportunities to connect with old friends and make new friends.
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).

Riding the Wave of System-in-Package (SiP)
In the 21st century, the electronic market will be driven by consumers with demands of immediate entertainment, fast access of information, and communications anywhere in a personalized fashion and at affordable prices. The new challenge is not how many transistors can be built on a single chip as in SoC (System-on-Chip), but rather how to integrate diverse circuits together predictably, harmoniously and cost effectively. Instead of getting twice the transistors for the same cost as Moore’s Law predicted in the past 50 years, the goal of SIP is to obtain the same number of transistors for half the cost within less than half the time to market. What are the challenges that growing SiP technology bring to the failure analysis from sample preparation, fault isolation, to physical defect localization and root cause identification?
Share your experiences and advance the industry and your career at the 47th International Symposium for Testing and Failure Analysis, the premier event for the microelectronics failure analysis community. We invite you to submit your work for publication and to present to the industry in Phoenix, Arizona for the 47th year of ISTFA.
The MRS Fall Meeting & Exhibit has long been considered the key forum to present research to an interdisciplinary and international audience. It provides a window on the future of materials science, and offers an opportunity for researchers—from students and postdoctoral fellows, to Nobel and Kavli Prize Laureates—to exchange technical information and network with colleagues. And this year, MRS will be taking the 2021 MRS Fall Meeting & Exhibit to an exciting new level, offering a Hybrid Event where presenters and attendees can choose to join us in person in Boston, Massachusetts, attend virtually from the comfort of their home or office, or both!
No matter how you attend, the 2021 MRS Fall Meeting & Exhibit will continue to showcase leading-edge materials research in both fundamental and applied areas, presented by scientists from around the world. Add poster sessions, networking events, professional development opportunities, award talks, and an exhibit of international manufacturers, suppliers and developers, and this will be an event you just cannot afford to miss.
