CAMPS 2024


The Conference Across MRSEC-PREM Schools is a student-led initiative to bring MRSEC-PREM students faculty, and industry together to help improve students’ research, academic, and professional skills. The conference was founded as a result of a growing need to network with students from other institutions and learn about their work. Given the collaborative spirit that MRSEC instills in us, we find it imperative to expand upon this spirit to encourage cross-institutional discussions and benefit from each other’s knowledge, network, and industry connections.

 Where and when?

This year’s conference will be held in Chicago, IL, at the University of Chicago on August 2nd-3rd, 2024.
