About the SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCE & WORKSHOP

From 29 - 30 January 2018, LUM GmbH hosts the next, now traditional International Workshop Dispersion Analysis & Materials Testing in Berlin, Germany - now as dual event that combines conference & workshop. 

The event will be held at the Park Inn By Radisson, directly on Berlin's famous Alexanderplatz.

First programme highlights include these confirmed lectures:

"Accelerated galenic stability measurement of cosmetic formulations"
Bio-Chemisches Laboratorium Dr. Lehmann GmbH & Co. KG

"Particle Size Characterization in Supersaturated Crystal Suspensions"
Technical University of Dortmund, Equipment design

and further confirmed speakers from:
Institutt for kjemisk prosessteknologi , NTNU, (NO)
Institute of Mechanical Processing and Mechanics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (GER)
Institute of Particle Technology (LFG), FAU, Erlangen-Nürnberg (GER)
Institut für Mechanische Verfahrenstechnik und Aufbereitungstechnik, TU Freiberg (GER)
Takeda Colloid Techno-Consulting (JP)

Besides the excellent networking, the event provides the attendees yet another time with the unique opportunity to discuss their questions with international experts and to set future trends in their particular research and development and production fields. 

Again, all users, from industry and from research organizations, are kindly invited to highlight their experiences, methods and solutions for the characterization of particle properties and particle interactions. Present your strategies and results based on the use of LUMiSizer, LUMiFuge, LUMiReaderLUMiReader X-Ray and LUMiFrac.

The evaluation and optimization of separation processes is in focus as it is the development and improvement of formulations in all industrial branches, e.g. in cosmetics and home care, in food, in pharmaceutical industries, in the paints sector as well as in oil industry.

The shelf-life prediction for emulsions and suspensions and the accelerated stability testing according to ISO/TR 13097 are of major importance for the event, too.

In the field of adhesion and cohesion analysis, we explicitly address all LUMiFrac users to report on their experiences, e.g. when determining the adhesion strength of coatings on various substrates or when applying adhesives in composite materials (see below for more information about your application as conference speaker and abstract submission).

Following the conference & workshop, there will be four-hour-hands- on-courses for LUM instruments at LUM facility in the morning of 31 January. The courses are limited to a total of 16 participants on first come-first served basis.

Scientific Committee Chair: Prof. Dr. D. Lerche, LUM GmbH

Call for LUM Young Scientist Award 2018

With calling for papers for Young Scientist Award 2018 LUM again broadens its support and commitment in promoting young researchers from universities and academic institutions all across the globe.

The submissions of relevant scientific results to the organizing committee of the workshop are hereby strongly encouraged. To qualify, any applicant must meet the following conditions:

• Experimental results that advance the understanding of the general scientific community in the analysis of dispersions/particles respectively in materials testing were obtained by using LUM instruments (no longer than two years after graduation).

• The scientific significance of the results is met by submitting a peer-reviewed publication, a Bachelor, Master or PhD thesis as copy, or, in case of unpublished results, a detailed description of work.

• Applicants provide a two-page abstract and a detailed curriculum vitae, along with a letter of recommendation by the supervisor. Kindly submit all documents by email to event[at]lum-gmbh.de, keyword ‚LUM YSA 2018‘ (please download the stylesheet for your abstract HERE).

The deadline for LUM Young Scientist Award 2018 applications expires on 30 June 2017.

A jury will nominate three candidates to present their results during the International Conference & Workshop, including a free registration. The candidates will be announced by 29 September 2017. Their abstracts will be uploaded to www.Dispersion-Letters.com. The jury will present the laureate in Berlin. She or he will be given the opportunity to submit an article to Dispersion Letters.

The LUM Young Scientist Award 2018 also includes a two night accommodation in Berlin and a prize money of 1,000 Euros.
