Dimensions of Intelligence in Materials

Monday 22.08.2022 – Thursday 25.08.2022
an International Summer School
organized by the Dresden Center for Intelligent Materials (DCIM).

Innovative materials are one of the key technologies for keeping products and industrial processes economically competitive and ecologically sustainable. Modern materials science requires a multi-discipline approach embracing chemistry, physics, engineering, as well as data science.

The DRESDEN-concept Summer School Dimensions of Intelligence in Materials 2022 will be held from 22.08. to 25.08. in Dresden. In the 4 days of the event, we show the different aspects of materials that are called „intelligent“: These materials may be performing intrinsic computations, they may self-assemble, they may, for example, have sensor and actuator capabilities, or they may be parts of larger systems to enhance functionality.

We will be approaching the subject starting from the lab-scale and the fabrication approaches for intelligent materials. Then, we will show how simulation, modeling and design can help to bridge the gap to applications. Finally, we will look at the application scale and how we can integrate intelligent materials into working systems.
