 LUBMAT 2018

SAN SEBASTIAN, SPAIN 5th-6th JUNE 2018

LUBMAT is a common initiative between TEKNIKER and JOST Institute for lubrication and tribology which realized that even though there were numerous international congresses dealing with the scientific approach for lubrication and wear, there were not any specific industrially focused. LUBMAT intends to address the industrial public without losing sight of the academic and scientific vision. LUBMAT is a well-established event that is in its 6th edition. Contributions are expected on all aspects of these three main topics:

  • Lubricants and lubrication management.
  • Tribology.
  • Condition monitoring.

7th KMM-VIN Industrial Workshop (IW7)

 Biomaterials: Key Technologies for Better Healthcare  Erlangen, Germany 27th-28th September 2017

 The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts working in the broad area of biomedical materials both in industry and academia, covering topics related to design, fabrication, characterisation and applications of a wide variety of biomaterials. Materials science and technological aspects, cell biology and in vivo evaluation of new biomaterials as well as analysis of the performance of established biomedical materials in clinical applications will be discussed. In addition, contributions are invited to cover advanced concepts of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, including biofabrication approaches, controlled drug delivery systems and biomaterials models for in vitro screening and for cancer research and therapy.

WG 6: Materials for Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)

Chairperson: Wanda Wolny (MEGGITT)

Scope and objective of this WG

Piezoelectric materials facilitate energy conversion from mechanical to electrical and vice versa. Thanks to the new technologies, enabling integration, they can be active as relatively small structures or parts of more complex systems, thus extending the frequency range in which they operate into high MHz range and the complex functionality, acting both as sensors, transducers and transmitters among other bringing close self-supported remote sensing systems for medical, safety and other applications.

Metamaterials are micro- and nanostructured artificial electromagnetic materials which offer an opportunity to realize electromagnetic material properties not available in nature, such as negative parameters, paramteres near zero, extreme chirality, and so on. They are rapidly maturing and become increasingly employed for the design of electronic and optical components, integrated circuits and functional devices. They will have ubiquitous applications ranging from the high speed computer chips to optical communications devices, high resolution imaging and biomedical sensors. Specialised electromagnetic materials will provide the necessary functionality for electronic devices and constitute the physical layer of the technologies dealing with electromagnetic signals in radio engineering, nanotechnologies, security, safety, and biology.

WG6 Scope:

  • Novel multifunctional oxydes – multiferroics, environment-friendly
  • Organic-inorganic composites as metamaterials & multifunctional structures
  • Micro and nano technologies for multifunctional structures
  • Functional materials with specific physical/electrical properties
  • Integrated systems based on multifunctional materials and structures
  • Artificial materials with exotic and extreme values of electromagnetic parameters
  • Fibre reinforced glasses for optomechanical applications
  • Magnetic glass-ceramic or polymer matrix composites
  • Phase change materials in organic and metallic matrices
  • Conducting polymer materials

Target/market groups

The topics are centred on materials & nanotechnologies as well as the related manufacturing & production technologies, while the applications concern most of EU priorities, namely:
  • Health (diagnostics, monitoring)
  • Transportation (safety, efficiency, reduction of pollution)
  • ICT (integrated components)
  • Energy (energy harvesting, energy conversion & management)
  • Environment & Security (detectors, sensors, NDE)
