Due to the current pandemic situation, we have decided to postpone the 13th IFK to summer 2022. The 13th IFK will therefore take place from June 13 – 15 2022 as an in-person event in Aachen, under the then prevailing hygiene regulations.

The conference program will be the same for the new conference dates, except from minor changes that could result from scheduling conflicts. The trade exhibition is scheduled to take place in June as well. The optional excursion on the 4th and 5th day of the conference are cancelled without replacement until further notice, as June 16th is a public holiday in Germany.

We are looking forward to a great summer IFK event and look forward to seeing you in June in Aachen.
The homepage will be updated and new information will be uploaded in the following days.


All accepted and submitted publications are now scheduled in the conference program for June. If you are unable to present your paper due to the postponement, please notify in a timely manner.
Due to the postponement, the deadline for submission of non-reviewed papers is extended to 21st of March 2022.
If you are subsequently interested in presenting a paper at the 13th IFK, please contact
