The 93rd Annual Meeting of the German Ceramic Society (DKG) & Symposium on High Performance Ceramics will run parallel to ceramitec 2018, April 10-13, 2018, Munich, Germany, to be held on the exhibition grounds of Messe München.
The symposium is addressed to all experts from the ceramics industry and the areas of teaching, research and development. Young scientists, students and doctoral students, in particular, are invited to present results from their qualifying papers and current projects. Ceramic Injection Moulding and Powder Injection Moulding are expected to feature strongly in the programme.
Speakers will have the opportunity to be entered into the Walter Hennecke Lecture Competition at the Exhibition Forum. This offers a valuable chance for young professionals of the ceramics sector to present themselves to a wide international trade audience.
One of the core topics of the symposium will be digitalisation and Industry 4.0. A number of international, highly-qualified speakers will discuss the changes and challenges that the ceramics industry can expect to face in the coming decades, such as changing component manufacture, the tracking of material life cycles to optimise production processes and minimise raw material consumption, and the necessary reduction of power consumption.
Marion Lintl, ceramitec’s Exhibition Manager, responsible on the part of Messe München for the DKG Meeting, stated, “The DKG Annual Meeting & Symposium has been held simultaneously with ceramitec again for quite some time now. We are expecting some 300 participants.”
“We are very much looking forward to it because this means that the entire ceramics family will get together under the roof of Messe München,” she continued. “Thus, we can offer young talents an international platform for presenting the results of their research, discovering new trends and having in-depth discussions with experts.”
Papers submissions for the 93rd Meeting of DKG & Symposium on High Performance Ceramics will close on December 31, 2017.
