The 8th International Conference on Carbon NanoParticle based Composites (CNPComp2019) will be held in London on 17-19 July 2019.
CNPComp2019 aims at sharing knowledge and experience on carbon nanoparticles (CNPs)-based composite systems, that are currently at different stages of maturity, in order to advance the state of the art in understanding and application. Whilst there is an emphasis on polymeric matrices, contributions on metallic or ceramic systems are warmly welcome.
Topics includes, though are not limited to:
Preparation (synthesis, processing, or assembly) of CNPs and CNP constructs for applications in composites
Surface treatment, functionalisation of CNP materials and characterization of the resulting surface/interphase behaviour
Characterisation of intrinsic CNP structures and properties relevant to composites
Preparation and processing of CNPs composites, by blending, infiltration, or other methods, including subsequent conversion by moulding, stacking, welding, etc.
Additive manufacturing using CNP components
Hybrid systems, combining different types of CNPs or other nanofillers
Hierarchical nanostructured composites, developing architectures at multiple length scales, particularly in conjunction with conventional structural fibre reinforcements
Characterisation of CNP dispersion, distribution, orientation, within the matrix, and the associated influence on the matrix microstructure and properties
Evaluation of CNP composite properties: mechanical, electrical, thermal, and optical characteristics, and emerging multifunctional performance
Modelling of CNPs and their composites, both processing and performance
Specific applications and opportunities for CNP-containing composites
We are looking forward receiving your contribution for CNPComp2019 and welcoming you to London.
