4th Intelligent Materials - European Symposium on Intelligent Materials

27.08.2018

17. – 19. June 2019, Kiel, Germany

Intelligent materials integrate novel functionalities into materials. Examples include self-responsive materials, switchable materials and biofunctional materials, to name a few. In the biomedical context such materials are highly relevant, starting from biomagnetic sensing to brain implants.


Logo der Tagung

If intelligent materials are used in devices they can often be made more energy efficient and autonomous. Also in sensor and actuator systems intelligent materials can lead to significantly increased sensitivity.

Such intelligent materials typically have complex internal structures: they can be composites of different material classes such as multiferroics or hybrid materials; they might be nanostructured or hierarchically built-up; they could be bioinspired and possess functional elements ranging from single molecules to the macroscale; they might have adaptive properties and thus become self-responsive.

All those materials and their design and development have to be accompanied by high-resolution analytical tools that are able to characterize the materials on all scales and, moreover, track and reveal their function-structure relations in situ or in operando.

In addition to invited plenary lectures, the conference encompasses oral and poster presentations.

Abstracts are solicited on the basic principles, modelling and simulation, synthesis, characterization, and applications of intelligent materials, especially of:
• smart materials (piezoelectrics, magnetostrictive materials, shape memory alloys),
• multiferroic materials and composites,
• multifunctional materials and composites,
• memristive materials and devices,
• biofunctional materials,
• bioinspired materials,
• biohybrid materials.

In particular young scientists are very welcome to actively contribute to the conference by submitting an abstract.

To submit your abstract, please use the following address: https://intelligent-materials2019.dgm.de/registration/registration/

Moreover, contributions related to the Collaborative Research Center CRC 1261 (Magnetoelectric Sensors: From Composite Materials to Biomagnetic Diagnostics), the Research Training Group RTG 2154 (Materials for Brain (M4B): Thin film functional materials for minimally invasive therapy of brain diseases) and the Research Group FOR 2093 (Memristive devices for neuronal systems) will be included.

After the successful conferences in 2013, 2015 and 2017 the 4th European Symposium on Intelligent Materials will bring together experts in the field of intelligent materials to present and discuss recent developments and detect future trends. A focus of the conference is the interdisciplinary exchange between scientists from materials science, physics, chemistry and biology.

Therefore, the European Symposium on Intelligent Materials 2019 is an excellent forum for discussions with international key researchers. It has the aim to stimulate new collaborations for developing novel intelligent material systems and characterizing their functionality, from molecular mechanisms to applications.

Chairs of the conference are Prof. Dr. Christine Selhuber-Unkel and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Eckhard Quandt, Kiel University, Germany

Abstract submission deadline: 30. November 2018

Im Focus: The hidden structure of the periodic system

The well-known representation of chemical elements is just one example of how objects can be arranged and classified

The periodic table of elements that most chemistry books depict is only one special case. This tabular overview of the chemical elements, which goes back to...

Im Focus: MPSD team discovers light-induced ferroelectricity in strontium titanate

Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.

Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...

Im Focus: Determining the Earth’s gravity field more accurately than ever before

Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.

The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...

Im Focus: Tube anemone has the largest animal mitochondrial genome ever sequenced

Discovery by Brazilian and US researchers could change the classification of two species, which appear more akin to jellyfish than was thought.

The tube anemone Isarachnanthus nocturnus is only 15 cm long but has the largest mitochondrial genome of any animal sequenced to date, with 80,923 base pairs....

Im Focus: Tiny light box opens new doors into the nanoworld

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have discovered a completely new way of capturing, amplifying and linking light to matter at the nanolevel. Using a tiny box, built from stacked atomically thin material, they have succeeded in creating a type of feedback loop in which light and matter become one. The discovery, which was recently published in Nature Nanotechnology, opens up new possibilities in the world of nanophotonics.

Photonics is concerned with various means of using light. Fibre-optic communication is an example of photonics, as is the technology behind photodetectors and...
