Call for papers for the 9th International Conference “Polymer Replication on Nanoscale” in Aachen, Germany

Aachen Germany – Processes for the cost-effective production of micro- and nanostructured surfaces from polymer material are in great demand for the industrial mass production of functional films and molded components. Existing injection molding and roll-to-roll processes often cannot yet achieve the required throughput and sufficiently high reproducibility for many promising product ideas. The ninth international conference “Polymer Replication on Nanoscale” (PRN), which will take place in Aachen on June 1 and 2, 2023, will therefore focus on processes for more efficient production of functional nanostructured surfaces and present possible solutions.

Researchers and companies working on these topics can submit a one-page abstract until March 31, 2023, to be selected as a presenter at the conference. Online registration for the conference is also open now.

Forum for researchers and companies with expertise in the replication of micro- and nanostructured polymer surfaces
The conference series “Polymer Replication on Nanoscale” has been held since 2014 at alternating research locations in Denmark, Switzerland and Germany and has established itself as an important international forum for leading experts in the field of replication of micro- and nanostructured polymer materials. The aim of the conferences is to network and exchange information on developments, research results and future visions for polymer micro- and nanomanufacturing and its applications. The two-day event will be framed by a social program of guided tours and an evening networking event.

The conference will offer participants presentations of selected speakers around the large-scale replication of micro- and nanostructures in polymer materials, including:

Manufacturing of micro- and nanostructured molds, inserts or shims for polymer replication.
Industrial replication technologies, injection molding, roll-to-roll techniques, and other innovative processes
Materials for replication of polymer micro- and nanostructures
Applications for functional micro- and nanostructured polymer surfaces and polymeric micro- and nanodevices
Metrology and characterization of micro- and nanostructured polymer surfaces
Simulation and calculation of various phenomena in micro- and nanoscale replication
