The 4th International Seminar on Aerogels will be held in Hamburg / Germany
on 24.-26. September 2018. This event is held every 2 years. Last time it took place in France at Mines Paris Tech in 2016 and was hosting 170 participants from all over the world.
Our call for papers is now open – the deadline for abstract submission will be 15.May 2018. Detailed information is available here.
Special information for the participants from industry:
A small exhibition of the commercial aerogels and aerogel-containing products is planned. If you have interest to show your samples, please contact the organiser , Prof. Smirnova, for further details.
Aerogels are a fascinating class of nanoporous materials that exhibit a wide array of extreme and unique materials properties. Aerogels have traditionally been obtained through a combination of sol-gel technology and (mainly) supercritical drying. However, in recent years numerous new compositions and processes have made possible a wide range of amazing new materials and applications. As a result aerogels are now the focus of significant development efforts worldwide, with uses in many fields including insulation for buildings and oil pipelines, lightweight structural materials, aerospace, adsorbents and catalysts, capacitors, batteries, and desalination, optics, high-energy particle physics, drug delivery systems, and so much more. Please join us in discovering the latest in this exciting field!
The aerogel community invites scientists, engineers, students, and industrial partners working with or interested in learning about aerogels to the premiere international conference on the subject.
