    From:admin1  Writer:Lijun Wang  Time:2017-01-06 12:53   Read:0

    1st International Symposium on Nanocellulosic Materials
    Call for Papers
    The Nanocellulose and Materials Committee of the China Technical Association of Paper Industry (NMC of CTAPI), was established in November 2015, with the purposes of strengthening the exchanges and cooperation among researchers in the universities, research institutes and industries in the fields of pulp and paper, forest products, and nanomaterials technologies, and promoting the transition and renewal of the industry by accelerating the commercialization and application of nanocellulosic materials in different sectors. About 50 representatives from 30 member organizations attended the committee inaugural meeting, with excellent presentations on the subject of nanocellulosic materials by some attendants. Considering that the field of nanocellulosic materials is world-wide and is advancing rapidly, the committee decided to hold the 1st International Symposium of Nanocellulosic Materials on May 20-21, 2017, Hangzhou, China. Specialists all over the world who are interested in the research and development of nanocellulosic materials, either from academia or industry, are welcome to attend this conference, to share your valuable experiences and achievements.
    We sincerely hope the symposium will help you keep up to date with the newest research findings and establish new contacts. I am looking forward to seeing you in Hangzhou, one of the most popular tourist destinations in China.
    Paper Submission
    You are welcome to submit an abstract before October 31st, 2016. Template is attached for your convenience. Each contribution will be considered by the committee members of the conference, and the result will be notified by December 31st, 2016. Those accepted are encouraged but not obliged to submit a full paper. Please use Microsoft Word in preparing your manuscripts. All the accepted contributions will be combined into a conference preprint, and an electronic copy will be delivered to every participant. In a later date, with your permission, your full paper will be included in a formal proceeding, or recommended for publication in our scientific journals.
    The main scope of the conference is intended to include (but not limited to):
    1. Highly efficient methods for preparation and production of nanocellulosic materials
    2. Characterization of the morphology and properties of nanocellulosic materials
    3. Modification of nanocellulosic materials to improve their performance
    4. Applications of nanocellulosic materials in traditional areas (e.g. paper and packaging products)
    5. Applications of nanocellulosic materials in non-traditional areas (e.g. rheology modifiers, food additives, coating & paintings, oil & gas, composites, etc.)
    6. Novel and emerging applications of nanocellulosic materials (medicine, biology, etc.)
    7. Other related topics.
