Mechanics Meets Energy 2017

For the little anniversary of the fifth Mechanics Meets Energy symposium, we went to the prestigious castle Ringberg from January 8th – 12th 2017. The symposium was enhanced by two topic days on Steels, Complexions & Dewetting and Hard Coatings & Fracture. A number of renowned international researcher gave keynote lectures on these topics:

Prof. Wayne D. Kaplan, 6Technion, Haifa, Israel

Dr. Dominique Chatain, 5CNRS CINaM, Marseille, France

Prof. Robert Spatschek, 10FZ-Jülich

Dr. Rebecca Janisch, 8Ruhr-Universität Bochum

Prof. Paul Mayrhofer, 7TU Vienna, Austria

Prof. Bettina Lotsch, 2MPI-FKF Stuttgart

Dr. Sherri Hadian and Dr. Tilmann Hickel, 4,9CM Dept. MPIE Düsseldorf
