The focus of ICEAM2017 will be on Nanoelectronic Materials, Photonic and Optical Materials, Catalytic Materials and Lightweight Materials which are closely linked to EAM’s methodological cross-sectional topics, Functional Particle Systems, Nanoanalysis and Microscopy, and Multiscale Modeling and Simulation.



Nanoelectronic Materials

  • Thin films (structure, simulation and characterization)
  • Interfaces (formation, characterization and simulation)
  • New materials for electronics (structure and properties)
  • New approaches in photovoltaics
  • Chemistry at the solid / liquid interface including nanosafety

Photonic and Optical Materials

  • Photonic and optical materials (structure formation and characterization)
  • Photonic and optical materials (simulation and numerical optimization)
  • Photonics at the interface of materials and medicine
  • Self-organization of ordered and disordered systems for photonics

Catalytic Materials

  • Liquid film catalysis – SILP and SCILL
  • Hydrogenation / dehydrogenation catalysis
  • Catalytic materials (processing and modeling)
  • Characterization of catalytic materials and interfaces
  • In situ microscopy and scattering studies of nanoparticulate systems
  • Optimization of catalytic reactors
  • Particle based fluid mechanics

Lightweight Materials

  • Additive manufacturing of functional components
  • Architectured materials: processing, interface design, structure formation and properties
  • 2D and 3D structural characterization and nanomechanics of architectured and porous materials
  • Multiscale modeling of failure, fracture and fragmentation of architectured materials

Cross-sectional topics closely interlinked with the four material classes of ICEAM2017

  • Functional Particle Systems
  • Nanoanalysis and Microscopy
  • Multiscale Modeling and Simulation
