Second Announcement

The 5th edition of "Nanoworkshop", which was first organized in 2003 at University of Kiel, will be held at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Bari"Aldo Moro" in Italy from the 20th to the 22nd of September, 2011.

Nanoworkshop 2011 aims to bring together physicists, chemists, and engineers from academics and industry which are active in the fields of advanced preparation techniques, new material properties and industrial applications, in computer simulations and theoretical work. The nanocomposites may consist of polymer/metal in the shape of nanoclusters, nanotubes, nanofibers, and nanowires. Contributions discussing functional properties of polymer/carbon and polymer/metal oxide composites are also welcome.

The scientific programme will consist of oral invited lectures, topical presentations and posters. The exchange of knowledge and the discussion amongst participants will be favoured during the workshop and related social events.
