16-05-2017: International workshop on liquid metal battery fluid dynamics (LMBFD 2017)

****************************************************************

(from  Tom Weier, HZDR, Germany)

 

Dear colleagues,

a two-day workshop dedicated to liquid metal batteries will be held in Dresden on May 16-17 2017. The focus of the workshop shall be on fluid dynamics, but talks on other aspects of liquid metal batteries are equally welcome and are in the scope of the workshop.

We are happy that Prof. Donald Sadoway agreed to give an introductory lecture on the subject.

The workshop will be held in the QF Hotel located in the historic city center of Dresden.

For further information please visit the web-site of the workshop

https://www.hzdr.de/lmbfd2017

Important dates are:

  • 5 March 2017   deadline for abstract submission
  • 12 March 2017 notification of acceptance
  • 26 March 2017 last day for special rate hotel reservation, online registration closes

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via email to

lmbfd2017(at)hzdr.de

or directly to one of us

  • t.weier(at)hzdr.de
  • norbert.weber(at)hzdr.de

 

We will be glad to assist you!

Please feel free to distribute this announcement to other colleagues that might be interested in the topic of the workshop.

Looking forward to welcoming you in Dresden!

  1. INTERNATIONAL LIMTECH YOUNG SCIENTIST AWARD 2017
    —————————–
    (from Gerd Mutschke, HZDR, Germany)

    The LIMTECH Alliance, a German research initiative devoted to the research on liquid metal technologies (https://www.hzdr.de/db/Cms?pNid=2920) that is funded by the Helmholtz association of German research centres, for the second time announces the international LIMTECH Young Scientist Award to support the research in the field of liquid metal technologies and to intensify
    international cooperation. Detailed subjects are, for instance, generic flow phenomena and flow control, magnetohydrodynamic flows, measurement techniques, applications in metal casting, crystal growth or energy conversion and storage, related model experiments and numerical simulations, etc.

    The award is granted annually and recognizes outstanding scientific contributions made by young scientists. Candidates must be less than 40 years old.

    Eligible for application are PhDs or post-docs (typically 3-4 years after completion of the thesis). Applicants must not be members of the LIMTECH alliance, and their work must not have been funded by the LIMTECH alliance.

    The award consists of a certificate and is endowed with a lump sum of 2000 €.

    Next award: 2017

    Nominations: from January 15 to March 15, 2017

    Chair of the Award Committee: Dr. Gunter Gerbeth, HZDR, on behalf of the Steering Committee of the LIMTECH alliance.

    The winner of the 2017 award will be announced at the Final Symposium of the LIMTECH alliance taking place in Dresden on Sept. 19-20, 2017, at which the winner is invited to give a lecture. LIMTECH will pay for his/her travel costs.

    Submission of award nomination: Nominations can be made by individuals, mentors of individuals or institutions. Candidates may nominate themselves. The application should contain:

    • a short application letter motivating the scientific contribution made,
    • a curriculum vitae,
    • a publication record,
    • contact information of mentors supporting the application

    All application documents must be submitted in pdf format via email to: limtech-allianz(at)hzdr.de.
    The deadline for submission is March 15, 2017.

  1. FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT: 8th INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC COLLOQUIUM “MODELLING FOR MATERIALS PROCESSING”
    —————————–
    (from Andris Jakovičs, LU, Latvia)

    This scientific colloquium will take place at University of Latvia in Riga (Latvia) on 21-22 September, 2017. Colloquiums in field of modelling have long tradition since 1999 and was organised periodically in Riga and Hanover (Germany). The aim of this series of colloquiums is to encourage collaboration by scientists working in field of modelling applications for increasing of products quality and energy efficiency in different technological processes.

    Papers on the numerical and physical modelling in the following branches are welcome:

    • Processing of high quality metal alloys and non-metallic materials (oxides, glasses, powders, composites)
    • Crystal growth of semi-conductive materials
    • Production processes for new and innovative products
    • EM stirring, casting, shaping, forming and levitation
    • Combustion, evaporation and condensations processes
    • Energy efficiency and sustainability of technological equipment
    • Space technologies and applications

    The participation fee (early registration – 420 EUR, normal rate – 490 EUR, incl. 21% VAT) covers all information material of the colloquium,
    the proceedings and flash, dinner as well as coffee and refreshments during breaks.

    Important date: submission of abstracts – March 31, 2017
