Karman Conference 2018 – shaping the field of 4D-printing

15.-18. July, 2018

With a small group of invited eminent scholars, we would like to further shape the field of 4D-printing. At a secluded but easy to reach monastery close to Cologne, we offer an environment in which visionary topics will be explored. Independent of scale and irrespective of application domains, we intend to explore and facilitate the concept of fabricating architectures which develop their function upon exposure and interaction with their environment.

RWTH Aachen University together with the DWI - Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials host this unique conference under the umbrella of the so-called Karman Conferences (www.karman-conference.de). Inspired by the format of Gordon Conferences, we particularly encourage informal scientific interactions in a stimulating environment from July 15th to July 18th 2018.

We invite you to join us in this endeavor to mold the future of 4D-Fabrication.

Topics addressed during the conference will be:

  • novel additive manufacturing processes
  • multi-material
  • material gradients
  • system dynamics and responsiveness
  • self-recognizing and assembling building blocks
