3rd Euro Intelligent Materials 2017

European Symposium on Intelligent Materials

07. - 09. June 2017

Kiel, Germany

Don't miss the deadline: 06 December 2016

Intelligent materials with integrated functionalities are required to make devices more energy efficient, autonomous, self-responding, switchable, biocompatible, and antibacterial. They are also integrated into novel sensor and actuator devices, providing significantly increased sensitivity.

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

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.

After the successful conferences in 2013 and 2015, the 3rd 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. 

The European Symposium on Intelligent Materials 2017 is an excellent forum to get in contact with international key researchers and stimulate new collaborations for developing novel intelligent material systems, characterizing their functionality from molecular mechanisms to applications.

Topics addressed in this symposium will include, but are not limited to:

A New intelligent materials

  • Smart materials
  • Multiferroics
  • Multifunctional composites
  • Biofunctional materials
  • Bioinspired materials

B Microstructural characterization of intelligent materials and correlation with their functional properties

C Theory and modeling of intelligent materials on different scales

D Applications of intelligent materials

  • Integration into MEMS and NEMS
  • Medical devices
  • Biosensors
  • Energy harvesting
  • Information technology

Submit your abstract, via the conference homepage:

During the poster discussion evening poster authors have extensive time to discuss their projects with other participants. A jury will judge the posters presented and choose the winners. The top three posters will each be awarded a prize!

Young scientists are especially welcome to actively contribute to the conference by submitting an abstract.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Kiel!
