4th International Conference and Exhibition on Cellular Materials - CellMAT 2016

Deadline for Abstracts: 15 April 2016!

The 4th CellMAT will be held from 07 – 09 December, 2016, in Dresden, Germany.

The activities in the development, manufacture and application of cellular materials are steadily growing.Meanwhile, R&D of cellular materials constitutes a discrete but well-connected research field of materials science and engineering. In the same manner as other materials, it is expected to be a driver of innovations and novel or better products.

Over the last years, applications have been identified in the fields of energy efficiency, light weight construction, novel and efficient conversion concepts or biomedical repair functions, just to mention a few.

The CellMAT conference series was initiated in 2010 in order to bring together experts from the polymer, ceramic, glass and metal communities dealing with cellular materials.

The 4th CellMAT conference will cover all aspects of manufacturing, modification, joining, property analysis and modelling of cellular materials. In addition to this, featured side events will focus on specific topics.

Below you will find an overview of the General Topics in 2016:


  • Surface modification and functionalization
  • Characterization: structure, in situ, structure characterisation
  • Physical, chemical, mechanical, thermal, acoustic and optical properties
  • Sustainable processing and recycling/materials from waste
  • Standardisation

Application-related Topics

  • Mechanical engineering
  • Energy management and saving
  • Chemical engineering and conversion
  • Bioengineering, biomaterials and life science
  • Biotechnology
  • Medical engineering
  • Microsystems technology
  • Automotive, aerospace and transportation
  • Architecture and design

The deadline for submitting abstracts is 15th April 2016.
Please submit your abstract via the conference homepage:

International experts will give keynote/invited lectures about applications in the automotive industry and transportation, in mechanical engineering, for chemical and energy systems, for environmental purposes or for micro and medical devices and functions. Thus, the three day conference comes up as a discussion panel for researchers, manufacturers, and users of cellular materials. During the conference, the best three posters will be honoured.

An exhibition will be held again in conjunction with the conference. An exhibition of cellular materials and related topics will be held in conjunction with the conference. Coffee breaks and poster sessions will be held close to the exhibition area.

Are you interested in supporting the CellMAT 2016 conference and in presenting your company/institute? Please feel free to contact us for any questions or proposals regarding your company’s presentation. To open the list of exhibitors 2014 please click here.

We cordially invite you to join the CellMAT 2016 conference, to share your experience in cellular materials with your fellow colleagues and to enjoy the very beautiful and special Christmas atmosphere during our conference.
