The 5th CellMAT conference will cover all aspects of manufacturing, functionalizing, modification, joining, property analysis and modelling of cellular materials. In addition to this, featured side events will focus on specific topics.
The activities in the development, manufacture and application of cellular materials are steadily growing. R&D of cellular materials constitutes a discrete but well-connected research field of materials science and engineering. Cellular materials are expected to be a driver of innovations and novel products and/or novel-type of processing and conversion.
Over the last years, applications have been identified, e. g. in the fields of energy efficiency, light weight construction, novel and efficient chemical conversion concepts or biomedical repair functions. The CellMAT conference series was initiated in 2010 in order to bring together experts from the polymer, ceramic, glass and metal communities dealing with cellular materials.
International experts will give keynote/invited lectures about applications in the automotive industry and transportation, in mechanical engineering, for chemical and energy systems, in liquid metal refining, for environmental purposes or for micro and medical devices and functions. Thus, the three-day conference comes up as a discussion panel for researchers, manufacturers and users of cellular materials. During the conference, the best three posters will be honoured.
The 5th CellMAT will be held from 24th – 26th October 2018 in Bad Staffelstein, Germany, a small city with medieval charm within the Franconian Switzerland, a region famous for numerous microbreweries and dilly types of beer.
The topics of the conference include:
• surface modification
• structure characterization
• joining and machining
• physical, chemical, mechanical, thermal and optical properties
• in situ mechanical characterization
• plastic deformation
The organizing committee welcomes abstract submissions for oral or poster presentations, and we cordially invite you to join the CellMAT 2018 conference, to share your experience in cellular materials with your fellow colleagues and to enjoy the very beautiful and special atmosphere during our conference. Especially young scientists are encouraged to actively contribute to the conference by submitting an abstract. To submit your abstract, please follow the link: https://cellmat2018.dgm.de/registration/registration/
Chair of the conference is Michael Scheffler, Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg (Germany), in collaboration with Peter Quadbeck, Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM, Dresden (Germany); Dirk Enke, University of Leipzig (Germany); Tobias Fey Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) (Germany) and Mike Tromm, University of Kassel (Germany)
Abstract submission deadline: 31st March 2018

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.
Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
In the fight against cancer, scientists are developing new drugs to hit tumor cells at so far unused weak points. Such a “sore spot” is the protein complex...
In an article that appears in the journal “Review of Modern Physics”, researchers at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (LAP) assess the current state of the field of ultrafast physics and consider its implications for future technologies.
Physicists can now control light in both time and space with hitherto unimagined precision. This is particularly true for the ability to generate ultrashort...
