10th Fall Rubber Colloquium 2012

07/2012 Juli-August

DIK - 10th Fall Rubber Colloquium November, 7th – 9th 2012

The 10th Fall Rubber Colloquium in Hanover, Germany, will highlight the latest and most important scientific concepts and advanced processing techniques in rubber and polymer science and technology. Experts from all over the world will give keynote presentations. Recognized industrial experts will identify future trends in the rubber industry. Basic researchers will share the studies that have been to understand and, therefore, predict the properties of final products.

In November 1992 the Fall Rubber Colloquium was organized by DIK as one of the first international rubber conferences performed in Hannover, where the DIK as a well known competence centre in rubbers and elastomers is located. Furthermore the region around of Hannover presents a lot of the German rubber industry for technical rubber products and for tyres. The intention of Prof. Robert Hans Schuster, as the Managing Director of DIK at that time, was to bring together young scientists, the leading researchers of academic groups and of the industry. This concept promised the highest benefit for all participants, both in theoretical knowledge and in practice, to advance the rubber industry. The first event in 1992 and the following were very successful. So the concept and the tradition were continued in 2010 by the successor management of DIK (Prof. Ulrich Giese). The conference by a young team of DIK scientists and secretary focuses on the entire range of research activities along the whole chain of elastomer production and on new developments. Considering the actual policy in research subjects like renewable materials, sustainability, saving energy and light weight constructions are under concern beside traditional aspects of elastomeric materials.

Covering the main topics

For the three days 10th Fall Rubber Colloquium, 70 lectures and more than 50 poster presentations have been confirmed and will be given by international well known speakers and scientists in English language from all over the world (Canada, China, EU-countries, Japan, Korea, South America, USA) covering the following topics in two parallel sections:

  • Recycling
  • Processing
  • Elastomer Physics
  • Simulation and Modelling
  • Aging and Resistance
  • Compounding and Mixing
  • Reinforcement and Fillers
  • Characterization
  • Elastomer Physics
  • Simulation and Modelling
  • New Materials
  • Nanocomposites
  • Processing
  • Nanocomposites
  • Characterization
  • New Materials
  • Reinforcement and Fillers
  • Vulcanisation/Crosslinking

Organisation und Registration

The colloquium will be opened by the minister for economy, work and traffic of Niedersachsen, Jörg Bode, and the Secretary General of the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers Association (ETRMA), Mrs. Fazilet Cinaralp. Prof. Dr. Toshio Nishi from the Tokyo Institute of Technology will present a plenary lecture about the elastomeric dampers for buildings against earth quakes.
Because more than 300 participants are expected, the conference hotel is changed to the Radisson BLU Hotel, Expo Plaza 5 in Hanover (www. radissonblu.com/hotel-hannover). All participants of KHK 2012 are kindly asked to register and to use the On-line Registration Form. All tickets and conference papers (incl. book of abstracts) will be handed to the participants upon check-in at the registration desk. KHK 2012 is financially supported by Metravib, Zeon and Orion.
The DIK has the honor to invite participants to the conference dinner, which will happen at the beautiful Old Town Hall of Hannover at November 8th (Thursday), 2012, 7,00 pm. The price for attending the conference dinner (for 1 person) is included in the conference fees. Binding registration for the conference dinner on the registration form is necessary.
The preliminary Scientific Program will be published at the end of July 2012.
