Intelligent materials integrate novel functionalities into materials. Examples include self-responsive materials, switchable materials and biofunctional materials, to name a few. In the biomedical context, such materials are highly relevant, starting from biomagnetic sensing to brain implants. If intelligent materials are used in devices they can often be made more energy efficient and autonomous. Also in sensor and actuator systems, intelligent materials can lead to significantly increased sensitivity.
The 4th 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. A focus of the conference is the interdisciplinary exchange between scientists from materials science, physics, chemistry, and biology.
The main topics of the conference are the basic principles, modelling and simulation, synthesis, characterization, and applications of intelligent materials, especially of materials that are smart (piezoelectrics, magnetostrictive materials, shape memory alloys), multiferroic, multifunctional, memristive, biofunctional, bioinspired or biohybrid.
On the evening of June, 18th, KiNSIS (Kiel Nano Surface and Interface Science https://www.kinsis.uni-kiel.de/de) as one of the Core Research Area of Kiel University, will award the Diels-Planck-Lecture to Dr. Zhong Lin Wang from the College of Engineering, Center for Nanostructure Characterization (CNC), Georgia Tech, USA. He will give a lecture with the title "Maxwell’s displacement current governed triboelectric nanogenerator for self-powered systems and blue energy", that is open for the public.

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
