The 2019 Annual Meeting of Chinese Associate of Material Science and Energy Technology in Switzerland
时间/ Time：13:00 – 17:00, Saturday, Oct 12th, 2019
地点/ Location：ETH HG D 5.2, Rämistrasse 101, 8092 Zürich
Founded as the branch of CASTS (Chinese Associate of Science and Technology in Switzerland) in 2013, the Chinese Associate of Material Science and Energy in Switzerland (CAMSTS) committed to providing a communication platform for young materials science pioneers from China and Switzerland and improving academic connection and collaboration. We’ve devoted many efforts into developing various scientific campaigns relating to materials science. The 2019 Annual Meeting will witness the transition of council, and continue to promote interdisciplinary communications on hot topics of materials science and energy, where you can expect any detailed discussions based on cutting edge science and technology, as well as keynote lectures given by well-known scientists.
Thanks for the support from the Embassy and CASTS. We will provide meals based on the amount of people signed in. The quota is limited, so we recommend early registration.

报告嘉宾简介/ Invited speakers
Prof. Edwin Constable
Edwin Constable completed his D.Phil at Linacre College, University of Oxford. He was appointed to a University Lectureship and Fellowship of Robinson College in 1984. He remained at Cambridge until 1993 when he was appointed Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Basel (Switzerland). In 2000 he left Basel to take up a position as Professor of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham (England) where he was shortly appointed Head of School. He returned to the University of Basel as Professor of Chemistry in 2002.
He publishes widely in all areas of chemistry with over 600 peer-reviewed publications and is highly cited (20,800 citations, h-index 72). He has been Dean of Research of the faculty of Natural Sciences at the University of Basel and was Vice-President of the University with responsibility for research 2011-2018. He is a member of the steering committee of the European Universities Association Council for Doctoral Education, the executive committee of the Swiss National Science Foundation and is a titular member of Division VIII of IUPAC.
He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. He is or has been on the Editorial Boards of numerous journals, including Chemical Communications, Chemical Reviews, etc. He is currently one of the editors in chief for “Comprehensive Coordination Chemistry III” to be published by Elsevier and is on the Management Board of the Open Access Publisher MDPI. He has recently been appointed Editor-in-Chief for a new open access journal “Chemistry – an International Journal”.
Prof. Patrik Hoffmann
Patrik Hoffmann carried out his PhD thesis at EPFL, in Lausanne in Switzerland. After a postdoctoral fellowship at IBM ARC, San Jose (USA), he returned to EPFL as project leader before joining Gramm Technik (Germany), an electrochemical company, as dental section manager. From 1997 to 2009, he carried out research on Laser Micro-Processing and Focused Electron Beam Induced Processing (FEBIP) at EPFL. Since 1997, he is teaching in micro-engineering and materials sciences at EPFL. Hoffmann won the EPFL Innovation award 2006. In April 2009 he was nominated head of the Laboratory of Advanced Materials Processing at Empa, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology in Switzerland, continuing teaching at EPFL as adjunct professor.
He is co-author of more than 130 peer reviewed journal papers and inventor or co-inventor of half a dozen patents. He acted as organizer or co-organizer of several international conferences. He serves as board member of SVMT, Euro-CVD, NTN Innovative surfaces, head of the laser processing unit of swiss photonics network, and member of scientific advisory boards of some companies. Patrik Hoffmann is guest professor at Nagoya Institute of Technology in Japan and at the Shengzhen Technology University in China. His present research interest is in advanced processing technologies in 3-D printing and laser processing and replication technologies.
Dr. Qin Xu
Qin Xu is presently a postdoctoral scholar in ETH Zurich, Department of Materials, Laboratory of Soft and Living Materials. He obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from University of Chicago with the thesis title “Shear thickening in dense granular suspensions” in 2015. He will be appointed Tenure-track Assistant Professor of Physics at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Hong Kong, China) from March 2020.
He was a talent of the Hundred Talents Program (Class I) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2018. He won the ETH Seed Grant Award and Invited lecturer of DMATL Colloquium from ETH Zurich in 2019. His publications are highly cited (1,300 citations) and he was invited to talk at several International Conferences and Seminars.
He is now the vice president of Alumni Association of Fudan University in Switzerland and is referee for ACS Macro Letters, Tribology Letters, Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, and CMSE 2014. His present research interest are Surface mechanics of soft materials, Solid capillary, Bio-interfaces and Design of advanced optical microscopy.
Prof. Ingo Burgert
Ingo Burgert has been a Professor of ETH Zurich for Wood Materials Science, at the Institute for Building Materials in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatics Engineering, since 2011. He studied wood science and technology at the University of Hamburg, Germany and obtained a PhD at the Institute for Wood Biology of the same university in 2000. He went on to work from 2000 to 2003 as a postdoc at the Institute of Physics and Materials Science of BOKU, the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna, Austria. From 2003 to 2011 he was research group leader “Plant Biomechanics and Biomimetics” at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Department of Biomaterials, Potsdam, Germany
Professor Burgert’s research focus is on the nanostructural and micromechanical characterization of wood and fiber composites and their modification in order to optimize material properties.
