Organised by the IOP Dielectrics Group

Electrospinning is a platform technology for producing novel nanofibrous materials with a high surface to volume ratio, significant fibre interconnectivity and microscale interstitial spaces.

Electrospun fibres are of high interest in a diverse range of applications ranging from regenerative medicine and drug delivery, through filtration and nanocomposites and to energy storage and stimuli responsive devices.

This two-day meeting follows on from the highly successful one day meeting held in London in November 2010 and it will reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the science involved with and supported by electrospinning. There will be a mix of keynote lectures and contributed papers. The meeting will be of interest to scientists from the life and physical sciences, engineering and application technologists.

An important part of the conference will be a substantial poster session to stimulate discussion and exchange of ideas.

The meeting is organised as part of the IOP Dielectrics Group but with strong interest and support from

  • RSC Macro Group
  • IOP Electrostatics Group
  • IOP Polymer Physics Group
  • Luso-British Biomanufacturing Network
