International MERGE Technologies Conference
IMTC 2017


Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

we cordially invite you to the 3rd International MERGE Technologies Conference (IMTC) from 21st to 22nd September 2017, at the Chemnitz University of Technology. Enjoy an interesting and varied programme of lectures and participate in discussions all around the latest developments and trends of the key technology “Lightweight Construction”.

Large-scale suitable production processes for the manufacturing of hybrid lightweight components are key technologies for the future. In this context, the variety of the used materials, structures and technologies and their applications have to meet various demands. Thus, topics such as recycling, sustainability and mass customisation will be of great importance in the future. A successful interaction of research institutes and companies in competition require strong cooperation, solution-oriented strategies and marketable applications. By interdisciplinary thinking and acting, knowledge transfer and the networking of numerous actors in the fields of material and natural sciences, production technology, micro electronic, system integration, construction, calculation, simulation and quality assurance we can achieve this goal.

The conference invites experts of science and industry to share their knowledge and experience in the research and development of lightweight structures and their manufacturing technologies. The sessions focus on topics that are especially relevant for a sustainable ecological and economical production of hybrid lightweight components. Furthermore, one main focus of the conference is the cooperation in alliance of the Federal Cluster of Excellence MERGE with international partners transnational network structures and competitive cluster alliances. Within this novel scientific and technological solution approaches for the improvement of resource and energy efficiency in the future-oriented field of lightweight construction will be demonstrated on an international level.

A poster-session and an accompanying fair exhibition complete the conferenceʼs agenda.

We gladly welcome you to the 3rd IMTC in Chemnitz.
