CNPComp2019 continues a series of successful conferences on carbon-based nanocomposites that originated from the European thematic network CNT-NET. The conference focuses on the preparation and properties of composites containing all kinds of carbon nanoparticles (CNPs) including nanotubes, graphenes, blacks, and related materials. Whilst there is an emphasis on polymeric matrices, contributions on metallic or ceramic systems are welcome. The goal is to share knowledge and experience, in particular between nanocarbon systems that are currently at different stages of maturity, in order to advance the state of the art in understanding and application.
Traditionally, the conferences were held biannually and alternating between Hamburg and Cambridge, the home towns of the two main initiators of the conference series: Prof Karl Schulte and Prof. Alan Windle. In more recent years, CNPComp has been held in Dresden, chaired by Petra Potschke and Prof. Milo Shaffer.
