1st PhD-Conference: Biologization, Nanotechnology, Simulation

27th June – 1st July 2022

Dresden, Ústí nad Labem/Ostrov

We are pleased to announce our first PhD-Conference 2022. This doctoral conference aims to promote exchange in the crossborder region of Czechia and Germany on an international level.

It offers the opportunity to lay the foundation for future joint research projects and to network with professional colleagues.

Within the conference was created joint publication containing topics of current research of PhD students from are of Material Science (Biologization, Nanotechnology, Simulation). See full publication.


The event is organized by Technical University Dresden and Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem.


The PhD-Conference concentrates on the systematic use and integration of biological resources, processes, procedures and principles in various technical fields of application in research areas like biologically inspired synthesis, multifunctionality by the combination of material properties, novel active properties of materials.


  1. Functionalization of the interface to artificial biometals,
  2. Dental systems,
  3. Deposition of calcium phosphates and silicates,
  4. Fixation and anchorage methods of functional molecules,
  5. Study of micro environments for resulting biological reactions,
  6. Methological developments of measurement equipment
  7. Environmental monitoring


  1. Tissue engineering and biodegradation of implant materials and implant systems,
  2. Nanostructuring of Implant surfaces,
  3. Discovery of novel nanostructured materials
  4. Development and integration of biosensor systems,
  5. Analysis of Implant Systems,
  6. Development of cell culture methods,
  7. Environmental nanotechnology

Methods for Characterisation

  1. OCT – Optical Coherence tomography
  2. µCT – X-ray microtomography
  3. AFM/AFAM – Atomic Force and Atomic Force Acoustic Microscopy
  4. FFD Fractal Fluorecense Decay


  1. Scale-bridging materials modeling from atom to system:
  2. Ab initio simulations
  3. Molecular Dynamics approaches
  4. Continuum modeling and simulation
  5. Data-driven materials discovery
  6. High-throughput materials simulations

Program Information

In addition to the exciting scientific exchange, there will also be opportunities to get to know different fields of testing and to establish personal contacts. The event will take place 3 days in Dresden and 2 days in Ústí/Ostrov. Participation is free of charge, partial travel expenses and costs for accommodation will be covered.

Detailed program

Call of Abstracts

PhD-students wishing to present their research work should submit an abstract on any of the specific topics until May 8, 2022 to trans3net@mailbox.tu-dresden.de.

The abstracts will be reviewed by an international scientific committee. See a template here. If you need a template in word format, contact us via e-mail.
