Scope of the conference

The 11th 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
