The faster development of new materials – from discovery to production – requires a close integration of different approaches in the broad area of materials science. Links between sub-disciplines from atomistic modelling to production engineering need to be strengthened and supported by a comprehensive characterization, scale-bridging modelling and simulation as well as a seamless data management along the Materials Chain.
This conference provides a platform for connecting across boundaries – from basic research on materials to applied technologies, from the fundamental description of materials on the atomic scale to the properties of technical components and their manufacturing.
|The conference will be structured according to the research areas of the Materials Chain:
Leading scientists in the respective area will present their recent research and share their views and experience on how to achieve more efficient interactions along the Materials Chain.
Contributions are welcome from the broad field of materials science. All contributions should clearly highlight how the research is embedded in the Materials Chain and which specific connections and contributions in neighbouring fields have been achieved.
