Title: Summer School on Nanocomposites

ICSAAM 2023 will offer courses at the state-of-the art from leaders from AmaDema (Advanced Materials Design & Manufacturing, Nicosia, Cyprus) in the development of Nanocomposites and Nanotechnologies.

Although the courses are especially addressed to MSc. and PhD students, all conference participants are welcome to attend.

Main Topics:

     • Introduction to Composites

     • Composite Materials Characterization

    • Nanofiber Reinforcements for Composites

    • Applications of Nanofiber-Enhanced Composites

Learning Outcomes:

At the end of the school, students should be able to:
    • Define the fields of Nanocomposites and Nanotechnology

    • Distinguish the different techniques used to characterize the physical and mechanical properties of nanocomposites

    • Understand the relationship between nano, micro, and macro scale in interdisciplinary fields

    • Analyze the contributions of nanoscale to performances of diverse technological systems

    • Identify the main areas of research and development in Nanotechnology Engineering 

    • Apply ethical concepts to the creation and use of matter at the nanoscale
