Program Overview:

MONDAY JUNE 24, 2024:

Starting at 14:00 registration will be open. At 16:00 there will be a tutorial session entitled “Nanoimprint and Applications – Everything you always wanted to know about nanoimprint (but were afraid to ask)” by Helmut Schift and Michael Mühlberger. It will cover a discussion of important NIL technologies as well as an overview of industrial application. Those of you who like to participate in this tutorial, please register directly by email to Helmut Schift (

At 18:00 there will be a pre-conference get-together at the conference site, with the opportunity to explore the city center of Lund on an individual basis afterwards. You can find information regarding public transportation in Lund here: how to get to the venue

TUESDAY JUNE 25, 2024:




Posters should be DIN A0 portrait mode in size. Posters will be on display during the whole conference. Two poster sessions are planned: Poster Session 1 on Tuesday evening and Poster Session 2 on Thursday  morning.
