International Workshop on Polymer/Metal Nanocomposites; "Nanoworkshop" has begun in 2003 at University of Kiel.  The 3rd workshop will be held in Kobe University located at the Kansai Area of Japan.  Polymer/ Metal nanocomposites are focused in the viewpoints such as;
-PVD and CVD based preparation techniques
-Preparation by wet chemical methods
-Novel preparation approaches
-Optical properties and applications
-Magnetic properties
-High-density data storage
-Magnetic devices for GHz
-Catalytic properties and reactive membranes
-Electronic properties and devices
-Biological and medial applications
-Self-assembled polymer/metal composites

Call for Papers, Posters and Exhibitions

Abstracts are due NO LATER than August 31, 2007.(Extended!)

The Nanoworkshop 2007 aims to bring together physicists, chemists, and engineers from academics and industry in a productive, manageable ambience.  The scope of the workshop ranges from advanced preparation techniques to resulting new properties and industrial applications. Theoretical work and computer simulations are also included. The nanocomposites may consist of polymer/metal in the shape of nanoclusters, nanotubes, nanofibers, and nanowires. Contributions discussing functional properties of polymer/carbon composites are also welcome.  Sufficient time to get acquainted among each other will be allocated after the talks for discussion and in the poster session.  The programme will consist of 10 invited lectures and approximately 20 oral presentations (15 min) and posters.
