International Conference for Dispersion Analysis & Materials Testing 2021

Berlin, Germany, January 25-26, 2021


From 25 - 26 January 2021, LUM GmbH hosts the next, now traditional International Conference for Dispersion Analysis & Materials Testing in Berlin, Germany. In 2021, we are a satellite conference in cooperation with the International Workshop on Multidimensional Particle Characterization from 28-29 January in Nuremberg, Germany.

The conference organizer invites all world-wide LUM instrument users to learn strategies and results from scientific and industrial experts using LUMiReader PSA & LUMiReader X-Ray, LUMiFuge, LUMiSizer, LUMiSpoc, LUMiFrac (for composite materials) and LUMiFlector. Registration is open!

Kindly send your abstract for an oral presentation in English as MS word file by email to event[at] Please download the stylesheet for your abstract HERE.

Deadline for abstract submission will be announced soon.

All abstracts will be published on Presenting authors are granted the participation (including evening event) free of charge.


LUM Young Scientist Award 2021

With calling papers for the Young Scientist Award 2021 LUM again broadens its support and commitment in promoting young researchers from universities and academic institutions all across the globe. The submissions of relevant scientific results to the organizing committee of the conference are hereby strongly encouraged.

To qualify, any applicant must meet the following conditions:

• Experimental results that advance the understanding of the general scientific community in the analysis of dispersions/
particles respectively in materials testing were obtained by using LUM instruments (no longer than two years after graduation).

• The scientific significance of the results is met by submitting a peer reviewed publication, a Bachelor, Master or PhD thesis as copy, or, in case of unpublished results, a detailed description of work.

• Applicants provide a two-page abstract and a detailed curriculum vitae, along with a letter of recommendation by the supervisor.

Please download the stylesheet for your abstract at here. Kindly submit all documents by email to event[at], keyword LUMYSA 2021. We will keep you informed about further dates and deadlines.

Satellite conference

The International Conference for Dispersion Analysis & Materials Testing 2021 is a Satellite conference in cooperation with the International Workshop on Multidimensional Particle Characterization.

Berlin, Germany, 25-26 2021  >  Nuremberg, Germany, January 28-29 2021 (Attendees of the International Conference in Berlin pay a reduced fee of 150€ for attendance of the International Workshop in Nuremberg).

About the Workshop:

Multidimensional particle characterization is of key importance for the understanding of complex multiphase products across all length scales from molecules to particles, complex materials and devices.

The Erlangen Collaborative Research Center 1411 on “Design of Particulate Products”, the Priority Programme 2045 “Highly specific and multidimensional fractionation of fine particle systems with technical relevance” and the LUM company jointly organize an international workshop on multidimensional characterization of particle systems on January 28-29 in Nuremberg.

The status quo of multidimensional particle characterization using state-of-the-art and newly developed methodologies will be reviewed by experts from industrial and academic perspectives.

Overall, the workshop format will promote intense discussions and exchange between the participants and may thus become further the nucleus of future joint activities.
