6th Dresden Nanoanalysis Symposium, Dresden, August 31, 2018
The Dresden Nanoanalysis Symposium, organized by the Dresden Fraunhofer Cluster Nanoanalysis (DFCNA), was held at Fraunhofer IKTS Dresden (Germany), Maria-Reiche-Strasse 2, on August 31, 2018. In this year, the symposium stood under the particular motto: "Materials challenges for automotive industry - Micro- and nanoscale characterization".
The symposium provided highlights in the field of nanoanalysis, represented by 3 keynote talks, 11 invited talks of world class speakers and a poster session. You will find the program on the conference web page: http://www.nanoanalytik.fraunhofer.de/en/events/6DNS.html.
The symposium covered the topics of nanoanalysis and materials characterization along the whole value and innovation chain, from fundamental research up to industrial applications. It brought togethter scientists and engineers from universities, research institutions, equipment manufacturers and industrial end-users. New results in disruptive nanoanalysis techniques were reported in several talks and in the poster sessions, and novel solutions in the field of materials characterization for process and quality control were shown. The discussions and interactions between the stakeholders helped to identify gaps in the fields of advancing nanoanalysis and materials characterization and to propose actions to close them and to support industrial exploitation of innovative materials.
