Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

After a very successful series of Intelligent Materials conferences and a lot of positive feedback from you, we are now planning the International Intelligent Materials-IIM 2022 with you and for you. We would like to invite you to the ATLANTIC Hotel in Kiel from 29 June to 01 July 2022.

Our intention to establish the IIM as an international and interdisciplinary conference with a continuously growing trade fair is the networking of the international expert community. In the future, the IIM should become a must-attend event for all disciplines with materials-based research, offering scientists from the fields of materials science, physics and chemistry as well as developers together with decision-makers an interesting forum for exchange.

Many high-ranking representatives from science and industry are already supporting IIM 2022 from the planning phase to implementation. First-class lectures, invited presentations, poster presentations, workshops and discussions are integrated into numerous sessions to promote knowledge and technology transfer. The aim is for findings and trends to flow into applications and, conversely, for application aspects to find their way into research.

Smart materials, intelligent, responsive or adaptive (bio)materials as well as bioinspired, neurotronic and other network materials form the core topics of the conference for 2022. But other current topics are of course also included in the broad portfolio of IIM 2022 and offer ample space for discussion and extensive professional exchange.

We look forward to seeing you and your extraordinarily high quality contributions in Kiel and remain yours sincerely
