Making and utilizing new materials to improve our life is feature of mankind. Now we have arrived at the ‘age of plastics’, where technological breakthroughs allow us to create, investigate and dream of a total new range of structured forms of matter. The 4D Printing Meta Materials aims to provide insights in the emerging fields of 4D printing.
4D Printing Meta Materials: Create New forms of Matter
These are highly promising disciplines which develop in a synergistic manner, aiming to create entirely new forms of matter, leading to applications that were not seen and conceived before. The 4D Printing Meta Materials Conference will not only cover the academic results but will show how designers and engineers will see future applications and new markets.
Relevance for Engineers and Designers
These fields offer not only tremendous opportunities for engineers but also for designers as many new applications will arise. Smart materials will solve design/engineering problems, which often arise from limitations of current materials. Applications can range from new materials for shoes and wearables, to applications in robotics and new type of sensors.
Platform and Information Interface
The 4D Printing Meta Materials Conference is a platform and information interface enabling an exchange of informations on market requirements, research interests and current results, skills and resources as well as facilitating the building of future partnerships.
Academics, engineers, designers, and managers are invited to lecture on their state-of-the-art developments and future prospects or display their products and offers as exhibitor.
