The co-chairs for the 2021 NANO conference invite submissions for oral and poster presentations.  We are planning for an in-person event.  If this is not feasible due to the Covid19 situation, a hybrid conference or full virtual conference will be organized.  TAPPI’s Nano event continues to grow in attendance and quality of presentations.  Please consider submitting an abstract to this premier event addressing the latest technical developments and applications of renewable nanomaterials.  While primarily focused on cellulose nanomaterials, submissions regarding other nano bio-based materials are highly encouraged

The organizers of this year’s conference are requesting abstract submissions in three focus areas:


Topics where novel research and new findings are presented are preferred. Literature reviews are not encouraged.  

Characterization and Metrology from the Lab to Production Plant

Self-assembled and Ordered Materials

Composite Processing and Testing

 Paper and Packaging

 Functional Materials and Soft Matter

Biomedical Applications

 Electronics, Photonics and Energy Technologies

Renewable Nanomaterials Production

 Product Stewardship and Safety

 Developing Standards to Support Commercialization
