Based on the current epidemic situation and epidemic prevention and control policies in Guangzhou, as well as the safety considerations of experts and scholars, the 3rd International Symposium on Nanocellulosic Materials (ISNCM 2021), originally scheduled to be held from July 23 to 25, 2021, will be postponed to November 19-21, 2021 (On-site registration: November 19, 2021, Main conference: November 20-21, 2021)

The 3rd International Symposium on Nanocellulosic Materials

November 19-21, 2021 | Guangzhou, China


(English will be the official language for both oral and poster presentation.)


The 3rd International Symposium on Nanocellulosic Materials,3rd ISNCM will be held on July 23-25 November 19-21, 2021, in Guangzhou, China. It is sponsored by China Paper Society and organized by South China University of Technology.

Researches on nanocellulose-based materials are springing up like mushroom due to the unique features with green, eco-friendly and super mechanical strength, which attracted a great concern in the field of high-performance materials and high technology. Materials based on nanocellulose become a hot division in the materials science. Because the raw sources are the same as that of paper industry, the nanocellulose is now widely applied to develop a significant new division to produce nano-paper, special paper, etc.

The objective of the 3rd ISNCM is provide a platform for researchers and technicians in the field of nanocellulose based materials at home and abroad to share their novel discoveries and their latest progresses. The 3rd ISNCM will continue the feature of last two successful conferences. The 1st and 2nd ISNCMs were held in Hangzhou and Tianjin, which drive the theoretical research and industrialization of nanocellulose-based novel materials and related technologies.

The topics of this conference include chemistry of nanomaterials based on nanocellulose, novel methods for nanocellulose preparation, surface chemistry of nanomaterials, modification of nanocellulose, application of nanomaterials, etc.

All researchers in the world are welcome to the conference, and we hope you can enjoy the meeting and the Chinese prospective City-Guangzhou.


ISNCM 2019

The 2nd ISNCM was held in Tianjin on May 15-17, 2019. There were over 400 particopants attended. They came from more than 10 countries and were active joining the academic exchange and discussion.


ISNCM 2017

The 1st ISNCM was successfully held in Hangzhou, China on May 20-22, 2017, and 300 particopants attended. The meeting openned a new chapter for the activity of research in the area of nanocellulose-based functional materials.
