The Polymer Competence Center Halle-Merseburg (KKZ), the Institute of Polymeric Materials e.V. (IPW), the foundation Academy Polymer Innovations of Central Germany (AMK) and the University of Applied Sciences Merseburg (HS Merseburg) invite to the international scientific conference

from June 13th to 15th 2018

at the Campus Merseburg.

The PolyMerTec18 is the continuation of the tradition-rich series of conferences „Polymeric Materials“ with a newer and stronger orientation to polymer engineering. Under the auspices of the University of Applied Sciences Merseburg, the conference takes place in 2018 together with the 16th conference Deformation and Fracture Behaviour of Polymers.

The „PolyMerTec“ focuses on the following polymeric topics:

  • Plastics Technology & Polymer Processing
  • Polymer Analytics, Plastics Testing & Polymer Diagnostics
  • Polymer Applications & Polymer Products
  • Deformation and Fracture Behaviour of Polymers

The lectures are classified in these groups:

  • Polymer Blends & Nanocomposites (Prof. Dr. Hans-Joachim Radusch)
  • Structure & Morphology (Prof. Dr. René Androsch and Prof. Dr. Mario Beiner)
  • Rapid Prototyping (Dipl.-Ing. Dietmar Glatz)
  • Plastic Fiber Composites (Prof. Peter Michel)
  • Recycling of Plastics (Prof. Dr. Mathias Seitz)
  • Charaterization of Plastic Materials (Prof. Dr. Valentin Cepus)
  • Ultrasonic Testing and Charakterization of Plastics (Prof. Dr. Klaus-Vitold Jenderka)
  • Biopolymers (Prof. Dr. Andreas Heilmann)
  • Health medical care (Dr. Christian Schmelzer)
  • Rubber & Elastomers (Dr. Katrin Reincke)
  • Damage Analysis (Prof. Dr. Ines Kotter)

Additionally, an exibition of scientific equipment as one important part of the conference completes the programme.

We cordially call interested colleagues to be a part of the conference course and to promote the scientific discussion with lectures and poster contributions.
