From the 10th and the 13th of April, Frankfurt hosts ELECTROSTATICS 2017, the 13the International Conference on Electrostatics organized by DECHEMA togethet with the Working Party “Static Electricity in Industry” of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE), whose secretary is Dr. Pedro Llovera, from the Instituto Tecnológico de la Energía (ITE).
ELECTROSTATICS is a quadrennial conference that has been successfully held around Europe since 1973. It provides a unique interdisciplinary forum for discussion about the electrostatic phenomena and the industrial applications. Fundamentals, the main topics of the 4-days conference are: security and accidents, measuring, electrostatic discharge, applications and products, liquids, solids, science of materials, atmospheric physics and industrial precipitators.
This year, ITE, in addition to be part of the International Committee of the conference, participates with the paper “Relationship between surface potential and d33 Piezoelectric Constant in Cellular Polymers” about piezoelectric materials. The event boasts the active participation of international experts in electrostatics which will contribute to the conference with important papers.
This conference is an excellent opportunity for researchers and users working in many scientific and technical areas where electrostatics is a real concern or challenge to review progress and discuss future trends. Besides, the interdisciplinary composition of the conference gives the best opportunity to get inspired by solutions in other fields and promote relationships for innovation and breakthroughs of different industries.
