Electrospin 2016 - Invitation


It is a great pleasure to cordially invite you to the 4th International Conference on Electrospinning 2016 (Electrospin 2016), which will be held on June 28th to July 1st, 2016 in Otranto, Italy.

Electrospin 2016 follows the previous Conferences in the Series which took place in Melbourne (2010), Jeju (2012), and San Francisco (2014). This biennial event has become the premiere venue for the presentation and discussion of the most recent scientific and technological advances in the areas of electrospinning, polymer nanofibers, and related applications.    

The conference will provide a dedicated platform for students, researchers, and engineers from both academy and industry to exchange knowledge in this continuously growing and interdisciplinary field. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, material development, polymer, ceramic, metal, and nanocomposite nanofibers, green materials and sustainability, theoretical and simulation methods for electrospinning and for predicting nanofiber properties, filtration and textiles, applications in tissue engineering and biomedicine, mechanical properties of nanofibers and nanowires, optical and electronic properties, smart wearables, new materials for energy harvesting, management and storage. Special sessions on "Photonic, Electronic, and Other Emerging Applications of Electrospun Nanofibers" at the Conference will be dedicated to the COST Action MP1206.

In line with the spirit of previous Electrospin conferences, this will also be the right place to meet friends and colleagues, seeding new opportunities for joint research and fostering collaboration. Otranto, the venue of Electrospin 2016, is a wonderful small town to visit and enjoy on the east coast of the Salento peninsula, in the south-east of Italy. With its Mediterranean climate, enchanting shores and medieval vestiges and monuments, setting of ‘The Castle of Otranto’ by Horace Walpole which initiated the gothic novel as literary genre, Otranto will welcome the Electrospin 2016 participants for a memorable experience.

We look forward to seeing you in Otranto in June 2016!

Kind Regards,

Dario Pisignano
