2013 MRS Fall Meeting Plenary Address – Dr. David Morse, Corning Incorporated
Monday, December 2
6:45 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. (ET)

Launched in 2011, Corning’s Internet video series, A Day Made of Glass, portrays a vision of an inter-connected future: high bandwidth information delivery with touch-enabled, fixed and portable displays that would improve essentially every facet of how we live, work and play. A Day Made of Glass stimulated an entire eco-system of high technology developers to begin collaborating on making this vision a reality.

Advances in technical glass are one of the key enablers of the vision in A Day Made of Glass – from high performance LCD display glass to super tough, thin, lightweight Corning® Gorilla® Glass and flexible Corning Willow™ Glass substrates to very high bandwidth and very low loss optical fibers and connectors for wire line and wireless applications. These developments, including novel materials modeling to the latest in optical fiber design, and their technical trajectories will be discussed.

The Sixth Technology Innovation Forum
Wednesday, December 4
8:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. (ET)

The Sixth Technology Innovation Forum will focus on Innovation and Entrepreneurial Excellence. Designed to provide a stage for innovators, industry leaders and venture capitalists to provide advice and discuss pressing issues in the materials industry, this year's Forum will include a keynote talk and two sessions with invited speakers to discuss startup pathways, funding structures for capital intensive ventures and methods to successfully transition materials technologies from development to manufacturing.

MRS Von Hippel Award – Mildred S. Dresselhaus
Wednesday, December 4
7:00 p.m. - 8 p.m. (ET)

Talk Presentation: Memories of Arthur von Hippel
The Materials Research Society’s highest honor, the Von Hippel Award is conferred annually to an individual in recognition of the recipient’s outstanding contribution to interdisciplinary research on materials. Mildred S. Dresselhaus is an institute professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Recent research activities in the Dresselhaus group that have attracted wide attention are in the areas of carbon nanotubes, bismuth nanowires and low-dimensional thermoelectricity. Her research in materials physics and her public service have been widely recognized. Dresselhaus has received numerous awards, including the National Medal of Science, the Fermi Award, the Kavli Award and 30 honorary doctorates worldwide. She is particularly well known for her work on carbon nanotubes and other nanostructured systems.
