General information/Topics

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 5th Asia-Europe Symposium on Processing and Properties of Reinforced Polymers in Dresden which takes place in the tradition of successful meetings named as China-Europe Symposia.
Previous symposia were organised in Nancy, France (2004), Beijing, China (2005), Budapest, Hungary (2007), and Guilin, China (2009).
During the 4th meeting, it was decided to change the name to Asia-Europe Symposium because colleagues from other Asian countries are also interested in this symposium.

Continuing with the tradition, the 5th symposium will be organized by the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden, the Technische Universität Dresden, Fraunhofer-Institute for Mechanics of Materials, Halle, and Institute of Chemistry of the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg.
Again the symposium is intended to be the meeting place for academic researchers and industrial experts, bringing together fundamental and application related topics. In particular, we encourage young researchers to present their work.
Most important aspects and recent developments of reinforced polymers will be covered. This includes both fundamental research and application related product developments. We hope that we can welcome you in the pleasant city of Dresden and that you will actively participate in the symposium.
