This workshop is co-sponsored by the National Science Foundation and its Chinese counterpart agency, the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). Invited delegates from China and the U.S. will discuss various aspects of Materials Science and Engineering and share best practices in international collaboration.

Delegates will include:

  • Joint U.S.-China Grantees under the NSF-NSFC Materials World Network program;
  • Young scientists in the U.S. and China working in diverse areas of materials research
  • Program directors from the NSF and the NSFC

 The goals of the workshop are to:

  1. Allow joint grantees to share experience and best practices with one another and with young researchers;
  2. Highlight the work of young researchers working in the U.S. and China and give them opportunities for face-to-face discussion and collaborative research planning;
  3. Help to launch new jointly funded projects among collaborators in the U.S. and China in various areas of materials research and education;
  4. Create lasting working relationships among materials researchers and their respective institutions in the U.S and China.

Research areas will include electronic/ photonic/ and magnetic materials; materials theory; energy related materials; and biomaterials.

Participants should plan to arrive on Wednesday, April 27 and depart on Saturday April 30. 

This event will coincide with the 2011 Spring Meeting of the Materials Research Society (April 25-29, 2011)
