The material acts proactively and responds to the external conditions in the manner in which it was programmed. This is the vision of programmable materials. In order to exploit the potential of programmable materials, both the internal structure of the material and its inherent material properties must be thought of as changeable variables. In order to achieve the desired outcome at the correct point in time when the product is in use, information processing has to take place directly within the material. This is a para - digm shift in product development that demands more than material competence. Engineering sciences, natural sciences and computer science must all work together in a new way. This is where the 1 st International Conference on Programmable Materials comes in. From April 27 - 29, 2020, experts from a wide range of disciplines will meet in Berlin to learn from each other and to advance the development, production and use of programmable materials. further information: 32 no. 1, 2020, March
