Symposium on Reference Materials for Technologies in the New Millennium

21-23 May 2000
Berlin, Germany

This symposium, jointly organized with EURACHEM and other institutions, will provide an opportunity for international exchange of information on, and experience with, reference materials (RM) between prominent RM users and producers with a focus on materials analysis. Sessions will be dedicated to specific topics in the following areas:

General aspects

  • providing RMs with traceable specifications and how to use them to establish traceability in chemical measurement
  • certification strategies
  • RM types and categories, RM databases

Certification of chemical composition

  • pure materials and elemental solutions
  • metal matrices, ceramics, and glasses
  • semiconductors and high-tech materials

Certification of physical properties

  • porous materials, particle-size RMs
  • chromatography-column materials
  • multiphase systems

Invited lectures, as well as contributed oral and poster presentations, will show the latest state of development in these fields.

For further information on submitting oral/poster contributions and/or on participating in the symposium, contact Dr. P. Klobes, Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM), Dept. I.1, Richard-Willstaetter-Str. 11, D-12489 Berlin, Germany; E-mail: [email protected]; Tel.: +49 30 6392 5825; Fax: 49 30 6392 5972.
