4th Hybrid Materials and Structures 2020 28 - 29 April 2020, Karlsruhe, Germany

"Hybrid Materials and Structures 2020" covers the entire spectrum of topics, from basic materials to design, from production to application, and thus provides the basis for an in-depth understanding of application-specific material and component behavior. The only limitation is the focus on material combinations that perform structural tasks in some way.

In multi-material design, hybrid composites joined by downstream processes such as bonding or welding are already established, but often do not fully exploit the lightweight potential. An intrinsic hybrid composite, however, is an integral component in which the various materials are joined in the consolidation or forming process of the metal- or plastic-based component. Hybrid 2020 is dedicating a special session to these material systems.

The conference offers a diverse mix of short talks, poster presentations and poster forums. In addition, the interdisciplinary exchange between science and industry will enable extended networking among the participants.

A DFG priority programme on intrinsic hybrid composites and a German-Canadian graduate school on hybrid fibre composites, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is home of two major research collaborations dedicated to this class of materials. This also applies to numerous industrial companies, especially from the automotive and supplier industries, and non-university research institutions in the Karlsruhe technology region.

The conference program will be available soon.

Poster contributions can still be submitted!
