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

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have come up with a striking new addition to contact stamping technologies in the ERDF research project ScanCut. In collaboration with industry partners from North Rhine-Westphalia, the Aachen-based team of researchers developed a hybrid manufacturing process for the laser cutting of thin-walled metal strips. This new process makes it possible to fabricate even the tiniest details of contact parts in an eco-friendly, high-precision and efficient manner.
Plug connectors are tiny and, at first glance, unremarkable – yet modern vehicles would be unable to function without them. Several thousand plug connectors...
An international research team has found a new approach that may be able to reduce bone loss in osteoporosis and maintain bone health.
Osteoporosis is the most common age-related bone disease which affects hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide. It is estimated that one in three women...
Traditional single-cell sequencing methods help to reveal insights about cellular differences and functions - but they do this with static snapshots only...
“Core-shell” clusters pave the way for new efficient nanomaterials that make catalysts, magnetic and laser sensors or measuring devices for detecting electromagnetic radiation more efficient.
Whether in innovative high-tech materials, more powerful computer chips, pharmaceuticals or in the field of renewable energies, nanoparticles – smallest...
An international research team with Prof. Cornelia Denz from the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Münster develop for the first time light fields using caustics that do not change during propagation. With the new method, the physicists cleverly exploit light structures that can be seen in rainbows or when light is transmitted through drinking glasses.
Modern applications as high resolution microsopy or micro- or nanoscale material processing require customized laser beams that do not change during...
