For materials scientists, downtown Columbus, Ohio, was the place to be this past week for the Materials Science & Technology technical meeting and exhibition.

MS&T is an annual event cohosted by The American Ceramic Society, The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), and the Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST). In 2020, MS&T had to take place virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but this year the three societies were thrilled to welcome everyone back in person.

A full write-up of ACerS 123rd Annual Meeting at MS&T21 will appear on CTT this Friday. Today we will showcase just a few of the events that took place.
