What else can you expect?

We invite all interested to attend a social cocktail reception on the evening of Tuesday, October 21st from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. This is a great opportunity to network and meet other experts in your field.

Further, we encourage all to attend our annual banquet, another excellent opportunity for networking. This year our banquet will take place aboard the Moshulu, one of the world's largest fully-wooden sailing ships. The banquet will take place on the evening of October 22nd, from 6-9 pm.

Further, all breaks and lunch are provided for the registration cost (remember, free until September 28th, 2014!).

We sincerely hope to see you in Philadelphia - in order to get to know you better, to help your research or time-to-solution and meet those pursuing similar interests.

-The Materials Design Team.
