Real-time & Accelerated Stability

  • Direct accelerated stability testing of dispersions
  • Real-time separation in emulsions and suspensions
  • Comparative and predictive shelf life for dispersions (ISO/TR 13097)
  • Stability testing of cosmetic products (ISO/TR 18811)

Materials Testing

  • Tensile testing
  • Shear testing
  • Characterization of coatings
  • Characterization of composite materials
  • Mechanical strength

Processing

  • Separation of particles in industrial processes
  • Characterization of dispersibility and filterability

CALL FOR PAPERS

The conference organizer invites all world-wide LUM instrument users to present their strategies and results in the scientific and industrial use of LUMiSizer, LUMiFuge, LUMiReaderLUMiReader X-Ray and LUMiFrac in the frame of an oral presentation (for general topics see above).

Kindly send your abstract for an oral presentation in English as MS word file by email to event[at]lum-gmbh.de. Please download the stylesheet for your abstract HERE.

Deadline for late abstract submission (one page) is on 15 December 2018 (notification of acceptance will be given by 31 January 2019).

All abstracts will be published on www.dispersion-letters.com.

Presenting authors are granted the participation (including evening event) free of charge.

 

LUM Young Scientist Award 2019

With calling for papers for Young Scientist Award 2019 LUM again broadens its support and commitment in promoting young researchers from universities and academic institutions all across the globe. The submissions of relevant scientific results to the organizing committee of the workshop are hereby strongly encouraged.

To qualify, any applicant must meet the following conditions:

• Experimental results that advance the understanding of the general scientific community in the analysis of dispersions/
particles respectively in materials testing were obtained by using LUM instruments (no longer than two years after graduation).

• The scientific significance of the results is met by submitting a peer reviewed publication, a Bachelor, Master or PhD thesis as copy, or, in case of unpublished results, a detailed description of work.

• Applicants provide a two-page abstract and a detailed curriculum vitae, along with a letter of recommendation by the supervisor. Please download the stylesheet for your abstract HERE.  Kindly submit all documents by email to event@lum-gmbh.de, keyword ‚LUM YSA 2019‘.

The deadline for LUM Young Scientist Award 2019 applications expires on 15 December 2018.

A jury will nominate three candidates to present their results during the International Conference & Workshop, including a free registration. The candidates will be announced by 31 January 2019. Their abstracts will be uploaded to www.Dispersion-Letters.com. The jury will present the laureate in Berlin. She or he will be given the opportunity to submit an article to Dispersion Letters.

The LUM Young Scientist Award 2019 also includes a two night accommodation in Berlin and a prize money of 1,000 Euros.
