I Meeting of the Carbon Group :: I Reunião do Grupo do Carbono

June 12-13, 2017

The Catalysis and Carbon Materials team from LSRE-LCM is organizing the I Meeting of the Carbon Group, which will be held in Porto at Biblioteca Municipal Almeida Garret (12-13 June 2017), and would like to invite all interested researchers to participate. With this first meeting, we want to bring together all those working with different types and allotropies of this fascinating element. To this end, we welcome researchers from areas such as chemistry, physics and materials to stimulate the development of collaborations among multidisciplinary research groups, calling for the active participation of students and young researchers working in this field.

Abstracts can be submitted until April 30, 2017.

See you soon in Porto,
The Organizing Committee of the I Meeting of the Carbon Group
