March 2012
NANOSMAT-USA: Call for Papers
27 - 30 March 2012 , Embassy Suites Tampa, Florida, USA

Adhering to the long standing NANOSMAT traditions, this meeting will foster the gathering of high calibre, talented and intellectual people from both academia and industry in order to exchange ideas, information and technology. The event will provide a binding platform for interactions between researchers; scientists and engineers from industry, research laboratories and academia, and in doing so will feature state-of-the-art developments in all aspects of processing, characterisation and applications of nanomaterials, nanoscience and nanotechnology.

The Armourers and Brasiers' Materials Science Venture Prize
31st March 2012 , Application Deadline

This prize is intended to enable the winner to fund a significant commercial advancement of the project to a stage where a business may be created to exploit this technology. It is expected that the Armourers and Brasiers' Prize would become a significant factor in enabling the commercialisation of promising materials-based technologies in the UK by providing funding which is otherwise very difficult to source, to high potential researchers.

April 2012
2012 Materials Education Symposia
12-13 April 2012, University of Cambridge, UK

Materials science and materials engineering sit at the intersection of many different subject areas, and play an important role in education and industry as they link the pure and applied sciences across many fields. This breadth makes these subjects uniquely well placed to contribute to the solution of many of today's challenges. The interdisciplinary nature of materials teaching will be a major focus for the Symposia as we explore how materials can link different subjects together, and learn from experiences of teaching materials and processes across the curriculum.
