5th International Conference on Cellular Materials (CellMAT), Scientific Programme online

02.10.2018

24 - 26 October 2018, Bad Staffelstein, Bavaria (Germany)

The activities in the development, manufacture and application of cellular materials are steadily growing. Meanwhile, R&D of cellular materials constitutes a discrete but well-connected research field of materials science and engineering. In the same manner as other materials, it is expected to be a driver of innovations and novel or better products.


Logo der Tagung

Over the last years, applications have been identified in the fields of energy efficiency, light weight construction, novel and efficient conversion concepts or biomedical repair functions, just to mention a few.

This year the conference will be held in Bad Staffelstein, in the wonderful and special location Kloster Banz (Franconian Switzerland, Bavaria).

We are proud to announce the following Plenary Speaker:

Opening Speaker
• Prof. David S. Smith, University of Limoges, France
Thermophysical properties of porous materials: microstructural design parameters for thermal insulation

Keynote Speaker
• Prof. Jean Paul Allain, University of Illinois, Urbana, USA
Surface and interface nano-to-mesoscale patterning of biomimetic architected cellular materials
• Dr. Ernesto Di Maio, University of Naples Federico I, Italy
Graded and layered foams by gas foaming
• Dr.-Ing. Patrick Gehre, TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany
Functionalisation of cellular filtering materials for steel melt: a contribution to clean steel technologies
• Prof. Aleksander Gurlo, TU Berlin, Germany
Fabrication of porous oxide and non-oxide ceramics for gas separation, sensing and catalysis
• Dr. Roland Hingmann, BASF SE, Germany
Thermoplastic Foams: Versatile Cellular Materials for Multifaceted Applications and Markets
• Prof. Miguel Angel Rodríguez Perez, University of Valladolid, Spain
Nanocellular polymres. Novel approaches to produce these materials using gas dissolution foaming

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-Nürnberg (FAU) (Germany) and Mike Tromm, University of Kassel (Germany)

Im Focus: Data storage using individual molecules

Researchers from the University of Basel have reported a new method that allows the physical state of just a few atoms or molecules within a network to be controlled. It is based on the spontaneous self-organization of molecules into extensive networks with pores about one nanometer in size. In the journal ‘small’, the physicists reported on their investigations, which could be of particular importance for the development of new storage devices.

Around the world, researchers are attempting to shrink data storage devices to achieve as large a storage capacity in as small a space as possible. In almost...

Im Focus: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Im Focus: An energy-efficient way to stay warm: Sew high-tech heating patches to your clothes

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
