Plenary Speakers

Plenary lectures are a program highlight at the MSE congress. These experts are leaders in their respective fields and will be sharing their cutting-edge research and insights on the latest developments in materials science and engineering. The plenary speakers come from a diverse range of backgrounds, representing institutions from all over the world. We are honored to have them as part of our program and we are confident that their presentations will be both informative and inspiring.
