OZ-20 will be held from March 01-03, 2020 at Olpe in Germany “next door” to Wenden, where OZ-18, OZ-16, OZ-14, OZ-12, OZ-10 and OZ-08 have been organised.
OZ-Symposium was held annually since 2008 alternating between Germany and Japan. The first session-day is always the first Monday in the month of March. The Sunday before is for arrival, registration and get-together and insofar is listed in the schedule. The conference dinner / party [meet'n'greet] will always be on Monday evening. Since OZ-17 in Japan has been skipped, OZ-18 has been the 10th meeting and OZ-20 will be the 11th. In the future, the symposium may alternate annually between Germany and other strategic countries such as Korea, Mexico, Russia, USA, China, and others.
Please block your calendar for OZ-20 and please consider that also and even a small table top expo from your company/from your organization does stimulate discussion and interaction very much !
Once you browse the OZ-website you will find out, that we are working hard to make your trip to and in Germany very easy and also and again very cost effective which shall be a good platform for a good successful meeting.
Further announcements will be given by frequent updates of this website and also by email-circulars. If you are not already but want to be on the emailing-list, please click here.
Thank You very much and we hope to SEE YOU next March in Germany.
Monte Cassim, Sebastian Diaz, Henning Zoz, Jai Sung Lee & Hans Fecht
Announcement & Call for Papers
abstract submission until December 31, 2019
acceptance of papers by January 15, 2020 and earlier
Why you should come:
The goal of the OZ-Symposium on Nanostructures is:
· to meet people who are working in your niche-fields as given under “Technical Program”;
· to gain new ideas and latest information in the field of materials science and process engineering;
in other words – looking over the edge of the plate in a kind of global brainstorming
OZ-symposia do provide a small but first-class technical program to cover aspects in the growing niche and at the same time super important field of nanostructured materials in applied science and technology - to make more with less - more benefit to creation, with less material:
- High Kinetic Processing (MA, HEM, RM)
- Severe Plastic Deformation, BioProcessing
- Microstructural Design, Nano-Meso-Hybride Structures
- Sintered Metal/Ceramic & Compaction
- MIM, CIM, Spark Plasma Sintering
- Plasma Coating Techniques
- Additive Manufacturing
in “nanostructure” applications such as
- Nanocrystalline & Amorphous Materials
- ODS/NFA, MMC, MCC, CCC
- High Entropy Alloys
- Carbon Nanotube utilization
- M/C-Polymer compounds & WPC
- Solid State Chemistry
- Construction Materials Cement/Concrete/DesertSand
- Fabrication of FuelCell, H2-Tank & Battery
in the field of advanced materials for industry, life, energy and nature-saving.
The OZ-20 chief-organizers are Prof. Monte Cassim / Ritsumeikan, Prof. Sebastian Diaz / CIITEC, Prof. Henning Zoz / Zoz, Prof. Jai Sung Lee / Hanyang and Prof. Hans Fecht / Ulm-IMN and EUREKA.
OZ-Symposium today is kindly supported by the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy as well as the Korean Powder Metallurgy Institute. Also the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research is highly appreciated for making “participation of nanoTruck and later InnoTruck possible.
OZ-events in the past have been supported by the Ritsumeikan Global Innovation Research Organization (R-GIRO) Project and mainly financed by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan (MEXT) within the Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Area in the academic project “Bulk Nanostructured Metals”.
The Ritsumeikan Global Innovation Research Organization (R-GIRO) Project:
