We are less than a week away from Materials Science & Technology 2015, the annual go-to conference and exhibition for all things materials science and engineering.

(If you haven’t yet, there’s still time to register!)

This year’s event will be held at the Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, Oct. 4–8, 2015. Attendees will get the inside scoop on the latest research from some of the world’s top leaders, researchers, scientists, and business people. With thousands of talks, posters, and presentations across 12 theme areas, the meeting is sure to satisfy wide-ranging materials science interests.

Let’s just say we are on pins and needles with excitement!

Speaking of “pins,” (smooth segue, right?) get ready to #PinYourACerS pride at MS&T15.

New this year, ACerS will be handing out free collectible buttons at choice lectures and events at MS&T15. Simply show up to the event and find ACerS staff handing out the free buttons.

Check out the must-attend list of events to score your own specially-designed, ACerS-only, collectible buttons.

Pin these colorful, super-stylish buttons anywhere—your shirt, lapel, badge, lanyard, bag—and #PinYourACerSPride.
