March 31 Update:

Following guidance from the CDC and the Virginia Department of Health, to limit the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, the Adhesion Science short course has been cancelled. Although we considered alternative options, such as a virtual short course, we could not adequately replace the valuable in-person lab component.

MII will be offering the short course again May 17-21, 2021, at the Inn at Virginia Tech. Those who have already registered will be contacted regarding refunds. If you have any questions, please contact Andrew Tie at

MII thanks everyone who was interested in attending the short course and the faculty who were scheduled to participate. Stay safe, and hopefully we will see you in 2021.
