Being both strong and lightweight, composite materials have already found wide-ranging uses in structural and engineering contexts. Through advancements in materials science and engineering the potential for further applications of composite materials can be achieved by introducing functionality. Functional Composite Materials focuses on this exciting new generation of materials. Sitting at the intersection of physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering, we welcome contributions on all types of composite materials — the only caveat is that composite functionality must be clearly demonstrated.

International Conference on Nanostructured Polymers and Nanocomposites
Functional Composite Materials is collaborating with the 11th ECNP International Conference on Nanostructured Polymers and Nanocomposites to sponsor the poster prize at this year's conference in Lodz, Poland. We are going to publish a special collection of research work presented at the 11th ECNP Conference. The general theme of the collection is ‘Frontiers in Nanostructured Polymers and Nanocomposites’ reflecting the highlights of the 11th ECNP program.
The scope and topics of the conference and the special collection include, among others: progress in the synthesis and processing of polymer nanocomposites; graphene-based materials; polymers for biomedical and environmental applications; modeling of polymer synthesis and processing; advanced characterization techniques of polymer composites; printed and wearable organic electronics; industrial applications of multifunctional polymeric materials; ADL materials.
