Nanobrücken 2016: A Nanomechanical Testing Workshop & Hysitron User Meeting will take place March 2nd - 4th, 2016 at the INM - Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken, Germany. This will be the 6th edition of the now-annual Nanobrücken workshop series. As in the past, the workshop is open to all aspects of nanomechanical and nanotribological testing, including biomechanical, in-situ experimentation and theory/simulation. We look forward to seeing you in Saarbrücken in March!
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
In addition to Keynote, Invited, and Contributed Talks, there will be a Student Talk Competition open to anyone who is a student at the time of the workshop, and a Poster Competition open to everyone. Congratulations to last year's award winners, Peter Imrich, Montanuniversität Leoben (Best Student Talk), and Johannes Ast, Universität Erlangen-Nürnburg (Best Poster).
The abstract deadline has passed.
Oral Presentation Guidlines
The workshop prefers that you use your own laptop computer. However, bringing a backup of your presentation file on a memory stick is recommended.
Poster Presentation Guidelines

Previous Nanobrücken Workshops
Nanobrücken 2015 - Nanomechanical Testing Workshop and Hysitron User Meeting
April 21-23, 2015
The Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces and Hysitron, Inc. was pleased to present Nanobrücken 2015: A Nanomechanical Testing Workshop and Hysitron User Meeting.
This was the 5th edition of the now-annual Nanobrücken workshop series, held thus far at INM Saarbrücken in 2010, 2012, and 2014, and TU Dresden and Fraunhofer IZFP Dresden in 2013.
As in the past, the workshop was open to all aspects of nanomechanical and nanotribological testing, including biomechanical, in-situ experimentation and theory/simulation.
Nanobrücken 2014 - Nanomechanical Testing Workshop and Hysitron User Meeting
March 26-28, 2014
INM - Leibniz Institute for New Materials and Hysitron, Inc. was pleased to present Nanobrücken 2014: A Nanomechanical Testing Workshop & Hysitron User Meeting.
This was the 4th edition of the now-annual Nanobrücken workshop series, held thus far at INM Saarbrücken in 2010 and 2012, and TU Dresden and Fraunhofer IZFP Dresden in 2013.
As in the past, the workshop was open to all aspects of nanomechanical and nanotribological testing, including in-situ experimentation and theory/simulation.
Nanobrücken 2013 - Nanomechanical Testing Workshop and Hysitron User Meeting
March 20-22, 2013
The Dresden Fraunhofer Cluster Nanoanalysis (DFCNA), the Dresden Center for
Nanoanalysis (DCN) of TU Dresden, and Hysitron, Inc. was pleased to jointly present
Nanobrücken-Dresden: A Nanomechanical Testing Workshop & Hysitron User Meeting.
This was the third workshop in the now-annual Nanobrücken workshop series, the first two
having been held at INM Saarbrücken in 2010 and 2012.
The main theme of this workshop was nanomechanical testing applied to advanced materials and
semiconductor devices. However, this workshop had contributions covering many
aspects of nanomechanical research including in-situ experimentation (mainly in
transmission electron microscopes) and theory/simulation.
Nanobrücken 2012 - Nanomechanical Testing Workshop and Hysitron User Meeting
March 22-23, 2012
INM Saarbrücken, Germany
Nanobrücken 2012 was jointly presented by INM – Leibniz‐Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken and Hysitron, Inc., with co‐sponsorship from the JEOL company. The user meeting took place on the morning of Thursday, March 22, and the workshop began after the conclusion of the user meeting and continued until the afternoon of Friday, March 23.
This workshop aimed to highlight the very latest in nanomechanics and nanotribology research, including the use of complementary techniques, such as in-situ observation in electron microscopes, simultaneous electrical characterization, superimposed dynamic testing, acoustic emission monitoring, and more. The workshop sought to cover a broad range of materials and structures, as well as the influence of temperature and other environmental conditions, and was also open to computational contributions.
