June 3-5, 2010, Chalkidiki, Greece


Welcome

We are pleased to invite you to the DEMATEN workshop which will take place from 3 to 5 June at the charming area of Chalkidiki Greece. This will be the second of a series of workshops on "Processing, Characterisation, Properties and Applications of Nanostructured Ceramics and Nanocomposites" organized annually within the framework of FP7 Project "DEMATEN". The focus of this year’s workshop will be “Structural and Functional Characterisation of Complex Materials”.  The workshop is open to all interested scientists and there will be no registration fee.

Scope

The purpose of this workshop is to gather together a group of international scientists interested in modern characterisation techniques of complex materials, to discuss the invaluable importance of these techniques in understanding the materials, as well as the recent developments and cutting edge challenges of these techniques. We intent to concentrate on selected materials and techniques so as to provide a very specific focus to our discussions. Among the complex materials that will be discussed at the workshop will be nanostructured ceramics and nanocomposites, as well as selected bulk organic or inorganic materials which exhibit fascinating properties revealed by their characterisation at nano-, micro- scales. Among the techniques that will be presented at the workshop will be Neutron and Synchrotron X-ray scattering, Atomic and Magnetic Force Microscopy and Electron Microscopy as applied in the study of complex multi-component, nanostructured and disordered materials. Experiments at High Magnetic Fields play an increasingly important role in the unraveling of novel states and exotic properties of complex materials and therefore will also be discussed at the workshop. The significant role of Modeling will also be highlighted, as it is an indispensable tool to predict the functional and structural properties probed experimentally by the above and other techniques.

The objective of the workshop is not only to provide a forum of presentation and discussion of new results but also to introduce the above techniques and materials to young scientists. There will be oral and poster presentations.

Topics:

  • Nanostructured Ceramics
  • Magnetic Nanoparticles
  • Nanocomposites
  • Polymer based Nanocomposites
  • Multifferoics and Magnetic Semiconductors
  • Neutron and Synchrotron X-ray Diffraction and X-Ray Spectroscopies
  • Electron Microscopy, Atomic and Magnetic Force Microscopy
  • High Magnetic Fields
  • Modeling
  • Structure-Property-Function Relationships


Confirmed Invited Speakers:

  • Allan Hurd - Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA
  • Joseph L. Keddie - University of Surrey, UK
  • Athanasios G. Konstandopoulos - Centre for Research and Technology, Greece
  • Maria Katsikini - Aristotle University, Greece
  • Mauro Rovezzi - Johannes Kepler University, Austria
  • Mark Green -  NIST, USA
  • Milena Spirkova - Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry, ASCR, v.v.i., Czech Republic

The First Workshop and the Second Training School, Novi Sad, Serbia

E-mail Print PDF

The Workshop “Nanostructured ceramics and nanocomposites - Challenges and perspectives” and Training school “Characterization of nanostructured materials” were organized in the frame of the European FP7 REGPOT-2007-3 Project – “Reinforcement of research potential of the Department of Materials Engineering in the field of processing and characterization of nanostructured materials”. The events were held at the Faculty of Technology, University of Novi Sad, Serbia from 3rd until 6th December 2009.

The main subject of the Workshop was presentation of recent development in synthesis, characterization and processing of nanostructured materials as well as their integration into novel technologies. The general topics covered by the Workshop include diverse aspects related to:

  1. novel techniques for synthesis of nanoparticles and 1D structures,
  2. modification of polymers with nanoparticles and 1D structures,
  3. advanced processing of nanocrystalline ceramics,
  4. structural and functional characterization of nanostructured materials,
  5. correlations between structure of nanocrystalline ceramics and nanocomposites and properties,
  6. integration of nanostructured materials in novel technologies.

On the other side, the Training school, consisting of theoretical part (lectures) and practical work, was closely connected with nanometrology and improved reliability of measurement and analysis at the nano-level. Lectures were opened for all young scientists (participants from The Eighth Students Meeting (SM-2009) and students from University of Novi Sad). Practical work covered eight topics and it was opened only for registered participants in the Training school.

Simultaneously with the Workshop and Training school at Faculty of Technology additional meeting was held – The Eighth Students’ Meeting, SM-2009 a traditional forum for young researchers, organized since 1998 with the main goals to promote the work done by young researchers and establish closer international contacts between students from different universities and institutes, through exchange of knowledge, ideas and experience in the field of ceramics.

During these events we have hosted more than 150 scientists, students and professors from more than 20 countries. The timetable of the meetings as well as the list of participants can be found here.
