Welcome to the November 2012 COINAPO topical meeting. COINAPO (Composites Materials of Inorganic Nanotubes and Polymers) - is a consortium which belongs to the European COST Action. Currently it comprises about 50 research groups from 26 countries. The main aim of COINAPO is to generate fundamental knowledge in the field of inorganic nanotube–polymer composites and to generate widespread links needed for application and commercialization of these kind of composites by the European industry.

This meeting will consist of invited talks, oral presentations and a poster session. We will do our utmost to provide an informal and amicable atmosphere in order to stimulate thorough discussions on the multifaceted issues of polymer-inorganic nanotubes nanocomposites. We are working to establish an interesting and stimulating scientific program.

There are no registration fees for participants, but registration is obligatory. The deadline for the abstract submission is October 20, 2012. On-campus lodging at affordable costs will be provided to the foreign participants. A trip to Jerusalem and its surroundings is planned, as well as an evening in the old port of Jaffa.

We wish you a fruitful and enjoyable workshop
