On behalf of the German Carbon Group (AKK), we cordially invite everybody interested in scientific and industrial topics related to carbon materials to attend the Annual World Conference on Carbon - CARBON 2015.

The conference is hosted in the famous city of Dresden and takes place for the second time in Germany. The Conference Center is located at the bank of the river Elbe and only a few minutes of walk to the historical center.

The conference provides the platform for researchers to present recent results, for discussions and the exchange of information from the various fields of Carbon. Particular emphasis will be given to an intensified exchange between academia and industry.

Carbon 2015 starts with a welcome reception on July 12, 2015, at the Conference Center. We are also happy to invite you to the conference dinner on July 16 and a “Day of Science” on July 17 as an opportunity to meet and discuss with researchers from Dresden University’s Institute of Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology (www.tu-dresden.de/mw/ilk), Fraunhofer-Institut für Keramische Technologien und Systeme, IKTS Dresden (www.ikts.fraunhofer.de), and the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden (www.ipfdd.de).

The "Day of Science" will start with a panel discussion about the World Carbon Council.
