Workshop 2018

We are proudly organizing in June 28-29, 2018, in Madrid (Spain), a Carbon 2018 satellite workshop entitled :

“Bulk Carbon Materials

(composites, fibers, films, foams, porous carbons, etc.):

Relationships between processing conditions

and the resulting structure, texture, and properties

All of you are welcome !

This event will take place at :

Colegio Mayor Juan Luís Vives
Calle Francisco Suárez nº 7, 28036 Madrid, Spain

Information on transport to downtown Madrid is here.

See here some info on accommodation.

Limited, affordable student-class housing is available directly
in the Colegio Juan Luís Vives; other options are possible.

This event is organized with the kind help of :
