On behalf of the Subject Division Applied Inorganic Chemistry of ProcessNet we cordially welcome you to the 28th ATC 2019: Industrial Inorganic Chemistry - Materials and Processes* at the DECHEMA-house in Frankfurt, Germany.
The following topics will be part of the 2019 conference:
• Materials and Processes for Electronics
• Sustainable Inorganic Materials
• Advanced Characterization Methods
Submitted papers are accepted for all topics relevant to inorganic chemistry. The deadline for paper submission is extended to 24 October 2018.
The committee would like to encourage young researchers to use this event as a first class opportunity to come into contact with potential employers as usually more than one third of all attendees of the conference come from industry. Moreover a poster prize will be awarded. This is an excellent opportunity to collect merits for your CV.
In recent years, the holder of the Millenium Technology Prize, Stuart Parkin, Leibniz Prize winner Ferdi Schüth or Peter Strasser, last year's holder of the Otto-Roelen Medal of the German Society for Catalysis (GeCats), were invited as plenary speakers. Again, this year we compiled an interesting programme, which should foster out of the box thinking by giving thought-provoking impulses.
The plenary lecture related to the main-topic “Chemistry, Materials and Processes for Electronics” in 2019 will be given by Prof. Julien Bachmann (FAU Erlangen, Germany). Mr. Ralf Karch (Umicore) and Prof. Sundermeyer (Uni Marburg, Germany) will discuss the topic “Materials for LEDs” during a tandem lecture. Lecturers from companies will alternate with lecturers from academia, e.g. Mrs. Dr. Julia Lyubina (Evonik) will give a talk about “Industrial-scale synthesis of Si-based nanopowders for energy storage applications”. We are awaiting further invited lecturers from BASF, Umicore and Protochips. All speakers will discuss issues under the given topics.
The first day traditionally is closed by a lecture on a special or peripheral field of inorganic chemistry. This years evening session will either deal with global flows of inorganic raw materials and chemicals or with high technology, which is necessary for raw materials extraction and mining.
In 2018 we had a successful ATC conference with 30 % attendees from industry which illustrated the relevance of the conferences’ topics for industry. Let’s continue this success story with ATC in 2019 in Frankfurt.
* The ATC-conference derives its name from the German phrase “Anorganische Technische Chemie”, which stands for applied inorganic chemistry in a technical or industrial context. The main goal of the ATC-conference is to generate and foster contact between members from academic organizations and industry in application oriented research within the wide field of inorganic chemistry.
