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

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
