The conference is organized by Università degli Studi della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli - Department of Engineering, Federico II and CRdC.

TOP-Conference provides opportunities for exchanging ideas and opinions on both fundamental science and industry-relevant subjects. The form of the conference allows invited presentations as well as contributions from participants.



The 10th Conference on "Times of Polymers (TOP) & Composites" is organized by Italian groups on polymer science and composites. It provides a forum for scientists and engineers throughout the world interested in the timescales of polymers and composites processing, structure and properties. As time is the driving concept in the polymer science community, TOP-Conferences include sessions on various topics and provide opportunities for exchanging ideas and opinions on both fundamental science and industry-relevant subjects.



The conference program will be focused on the more recent advances in the following topics:

  • Composites
  • Nano-Composites
  • Polymer Chemistry
  • Biomaterials
  • Rheology
  • Glass Transition
  • Soft Materials
  • Nanoconfined polymers
  • Sensors
  • Processing
  • Durability



The conference is organized in oral and poster sessions. Each registered delegate can give only one oral presentation. There is no limit for the poster presentation for each delegate. To present a contribution (oral or poster) it is required to submit alternatively an abstract or a paper for each contribution. Please, consider that the paper (within 4 and 6 pages long) is required ONLY if the author want to publish their contribution (oral or poster) in the AIP Conference Proceedings. In case, the authors do not want to publish their contribution, a 300 words abstract is required. Either the paper and the abstract should be submitted at The deadline for the submission of your contribution is fixed to be March 1st, 2021.
