21st International Dresden Lightweight Engineering Symposium

June 22 – 23, 2017

Integrated lightweight engineering

An efficient key for the globalized mobility of the future

“The important thing is not to predict the future, but to be prepared for it“
(Perikles)

Never before has the human race put so much thought into the future. What will our world look like in 30 years? How will we feed ourselves? How will we move around? How will we transport our goods? How will we communicate? By the year 2050, our planet will be home to around nine billion people. With this in mind, and given the accompanying surge in demand for valuable resources combined with what are likely to be significant changes in global economic relations, Europe is set have increasing difficulty protecting jobs and the prosperity that goes with them.

“Function-integrative lightweight engineering in multi-material design” has a key role to play in the solution of the technological challenges of the future. In particular, this intelligent, holistic brand of lightweight engineering can be applied throughout the mobility sector. With its strong automobile industry, Germany therefore stands to draw special benefit from the development of innovative mobility concepts that enable not only the consolidation of existing market shares, but also the exploitation of new market segments characterized by a high level of value creation. This will nevertheless demand both the refinement of existing technologies and the reassessment of long-held convictions.

The Lightweight Engineering Symposium has established itself as an important platform for exchange between representatives from the worlds of science, business, society and politics. In addition to the cultivation of a culture of excellence in science and research, one of the symposium’s main objectives is to accelerate the transfer of technology from the laboratory to practical applications.

Focusing on the topic of “Integrated lightweight engineering – an efficient key to the globalized mobility of the future”, a range of prestigious speakers will use the 21st Dresden International Lightweight Engineering Symposium to not only put megatrends such as digitalization, sustainability, urbanization, connectivity and mobility into tangible terms, but also present their visions and development concepts for the mobility of the future. The Lightweight Engineering Symposium will be hosted by the Institute of Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology at Technische Universität Dresden, who are delighted to be holding this year’s event in cooperation with the Chair of Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich.

We can only develop the decisive innovations of our century if we work together.

We look forward to welcoming you to Dresden for the 21st International Lightweight Engineering Symposium.

Dresden Royal Palace and its “new” exhibitions

The reconstruction of Dresden Royal Palace began in 1990 and is unique in terms of its scope and scale. The Historic Green Vault has now returned to its original rooms in the West Wing, while the former Palace Church – including its famous interlocking vaulted ceiling – has been fully rebuilt to create an outstanding event space. The Turkish Chamber, Armoury (including the Giants’ Hall) and the Gallery of the Electors have also been restored to their former glory. Your morning tour takes you around the New Green Vault and the most recent museum spaces to be opened in the East Wing – you’ll be amazed at what they have in store!
The conference office at the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum in Dresden will be the meeting and starting point on both days. All tours end in the city centre. Price per person, per tour:          € 20.00 plus VAT (19 %) To book spaces on the tours of Kraftwerk MITTE and Dresden Royal Palace, please send an email to the conference service, CMD Congress Management GmbH Dresden (info@cmd-congress.de).

Venue

German Hygiene Museum Dresden

Reowned throughout Europe, and characterized by both a dynamic atmosphere and a variety of excellent event spaces, this listed architectural monument of the classical modern era provides a unique venue for the 21st Dresden Lightweight Symposium 2017. Its central yet quiet location between the historic city centre – featuring the Frauenkirche, Zwinger Palace and Semper Opera House – and the verdant Great Garden make the German Hygiene Museum a truly special place. The German Hygiene Museum was founded in 1912 on the initiative of the Dresden industrialist and Odol mouthwash manufacturer, Karl August Lingner (1861-1916). In 1911 Lingner was the driving force behind the 1st International Hygiene Exhibition, which brought over five million visitors to Dresden.
