Important information regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

MSE 2020 will take place!

Dear authors and participants of MSE 2020,

The current crisis is a challenge for all of us. 

First, however, we would like to confirm once again that the Materials Science and Engineering Congress (MSE) 2020 will take place.

There is no question that the health of all participants, exhibitors, and employees is our highest priority. Nevertheless, it is essential to keep the scientific exchange going to prevent even more damage to science and industry.

The German Materials Society (DGM), the organizer of the MSE, has identified the issues early on and has transformed all its events to webinars.

To ensure your safe participation regardless of the corona situation by September, we will offer the same professional and easy-to-use webinar solution for MSE 2020. This solution will allow participants and authors, who won't be able to travel to MSE 2020, to follow all lectures via live streams and present their lectures and posters from wherever they are in the world.

We like to ask you to continue supporting us in our efforts to keep the world of science turning and to be open to new ways of communicating and interacting in these difficult times. Thank you!

We have summarised further information below. Don't hesitate to contact us at any time:
