6th Dresden Nanoanalysis Symposium

31.08.2018 (Friday)

Materials challenges for automotive industry - Micro- and nanoscale characterization

The 6th Dresden Nanoanalysis Symposium, organized by the Dresden Fraunhofer Cluster Nanoanalysis (DFCNA), supported by the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) and the European Materials Characterisation Council (EMCC), will be held at the Fraunhofer Campus Dresden, Maria-Reiche-Strasse, on August 31, 2018. It will provide highlights in the field of materials characterization, represented by invited talks and poster sessions. In addition, we will offer to visit institutes. In this year, the symposium will have the particular motto: "Materials challenges for automotive industry – Micro- and nanoscale characterization”.

Based on the positive experience in the previous years, we would like to go ahead with the same format: One-day symposium with 3 keynote talks, 11 invited talks in 3 sessions, and a poster session for contributed papers. There will be exhibition space available for companies and organizations.

Please be encouraged to submit an abstract for a contributed paper with original scientific results. Abstracts which will be published on the web page have to be sent to ehrenfried.zschech@ikts.fraunhofer.de by June 30, 2018. The 3 best posters will be awarded. Selected full papers will be proposed for publication in the journal "Advanced Engineering Materials". The deadline for paper submission will be October 15, 2018.

About the symposium

The symposium will cover the topics of nanoanalysis and materials characterization along the whole value and innovation chain, from fundamental research up to industrial applications. It will bring scientists and engineers together from universities, research institutions, equipment manufacturers and industrial end-users. New results in disruptive nanoanalysis techniques will be reported in several talks and in the poster sessions, and novel solutions in the field of materials characterization for process and quality control will be shown. The discussions and interactions between the stakeholders will help to identify gaps in the fields of advancing nanoanalysis and materials characterization and to propose actions to close them and to support industrial exploitation of innovative materials. The symposium is supposed to reinforce ongoing collaborations and to discuss ideas for new collaborations.
