12th International Conference on Porous Metals and Metallic Foams

The MetFoam conference series is the largest cross-disciplinary, international technical meeting focused exclusively on the production methods, properties, and applications of functional and lightweight porous/cellular metallic materials.
The current installation of the series, the 12th International Conference on Porous Metals and Metallic Foams (MetFoam 2021), will be held from June 23-25, 2021, on the beautiful premises of the Radisson Blu Park Hotel & Conference Center in Dresden Radebeul, Germany.

Mark your calendar now and plan to participate in this not-to-be-missed event!

Topics planned for MetFoam 2021 include, but are not limited to:
■ Research in fabrication of cellular metals by conventional and novel methods:
▪ Foaming, sintering, moulding, etc.
▪ Special topical focus: Theory and practice of additively manufactured cellular metals, i. e. lattice structures, scaffolds etc.
■ Characterization and properties of cellular metals:
▪ Novel characterization methods
▪ Mechanical properties
▪ Fluid, heat, and mass transfer properties
▪ Other properties related to the morphological description and applications of cellular metals
■ Design and simulation of open and closed cell porous metals
■ Porous metallic biomaterials
■ Nanoporous metals
■ Application studies and industrial applications of porous metals and metallic foams.

A facultative visit of the Fraunhofer IFAM labs in Dresden and the Fraunhofer IWU Metal Foam Center in Chemnitz will be offered as part of the conference.

A Call for Abstracts will be issued shortly and updated information on the conference will be available from the conference website
