Polymer Chemistry Lectureship Award Julien Nicolas at APME 2017

Dr Julien Nicolas (Université Paris Sud, France) was presented the 2017 Polymer Chemistry Lectureship award at APME 17 – Advanced Polymers via Macromolecular Engineering in Ghent. The prize was awarded by Polymer Chemistry Associate Editor Prof. Dr. Christopher Barner-Kowollik from Queensland University of Technology and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

 
APME 2017 (Advanced Polymers via Macromolecular Engineering) took place in Ghent, Belgium on May 21-25, 2017.  The focus of the APME2017 meeting was on macromolecular engineering for the design of advanced polymeric structures, in connection to their characterisation and recent applications.

International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization – IP 2017

The 12th International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization (IP 2017) will be held at Durham University, UK from 17 – 22 September, organised and hosted by the Durham Centre for Soft Matter. 

The focus of IP 2017 will be on academic and industrial research in the areas of anionic, cationic and ring-opening polymerization mechanisms. Contributions related to other methods of living/controlled polymerization (catalytic, controlled free-radical, and step-growth polymerizations) will also be covered.

IP 2017 will feature also feature number of international leading invited speakers, as well as oral presentations, short talks for younger researchers and a poster session, supported by Polymer Chemistry, which will provide participants the opportunity to highlight their recent work. Submission deadlines for all abstracts is 31 May.

If you would like to attend, please register before 1 August in order to claim the early-bird rate. You can also read more about the symposium on the IP 2017 website.

3rd Functional Polymeric Materials Conference

The third FPM series will bring together leaders in polymers and polymeric materials from around the world to describe their most recent and cutting edge discoveries.

The aim of the conference, which takes place in Rome, Italy from 7-10 July, is to capture the multidisciplinary nature of polymer chemistry with topics spanning “basic synthesis and methodology” to “nanoscale and bioinspired materials”.

This conference will appeal to academics, students, postdoctoral research associates, industrial scientists and leaders, governmental researchers and those currently involved in the development of polymeric material applications to address the most critical needs in areas such as medicine, energy and sustainability.

Talk submission ends 1 Mayregsiter here

Poster submission ends 10 Maysubmit here

Global Conference on Polymer and Composite Materials 2017

23-25 May 2017, Guangzhou, China

 

Polymer and Composite Materials 2017, which takes place at the South China University of Technologyis dedicated to cover all theoretical and experimental aspects of polymers and composite materials. Building on the hugely successful preceding conferences (PCM 2014 in Ningbo, PCM 2015 in Beijing, and PCM 2016 in Hangzhou), PCM 2017 will provide an ideal academic platform for researchers to present their latest findings, and to facilitate networking and in-depth discussion with peers from Asia, Europe and USA.

The scientific program will focus not only on current advances in the research, but also in the production and use of polymers and composite materials in different fields. The conference setting has a highly focused technical program through plenary, invited, contributed, and poster presentations, supported by Polymer Chemistry and Molecular Systems Design & Engineering.

In addition, the conference will also offer the possibility to publish your research either in the conference proceedings (Indexed by Ei, Scopus, Inspec, CPCI, etc) or in well-known journals with ISI impact factors. You can find out more about how to submit your paper via the publication guide.

Advanced Polymers via Macromolecular Engineering (APME 2017)

We are delighted to announce that the Advanced Polymers via Macromolecular Engineering (APME 2017) conference will be held in Ghent, Belgium on 21 – 25 May 2017.
APME2017

21 – 25 May 2017, Ghent, Belgium

The 12th International Conference on “Advanced Polymers via Macromolecular Engineering” (APME 2017) will be hosted by the Centre of Macromolecular Chemistry (CMaC) at Ghent University, Belgium on 21 – 25 May 2017.

APME 2017 will continue the tradition of successful polymer meetings, after the previous conference held in Yokohama in 2015. The APME2017 meeting will focus on macromolecular engineering for the design of advanced polymeric structures, relating to their characterisation and recent applications. The meeting will be excellent platform for macromolecular engineers and scientists to present their research and exchange ideas through fruitful discussions, in the beautiful city of Ghent.

After the last plenary lecture on 24 May 2017, a football game is announced, opposing the “Belgian polymer team” and the “Rest of the World polymer team”.

The main topics will include:

  • Recent Advances in Macromolecular Synthesis
  • Complex Macromolecular Structures
  • Dynamic and Supramolecular Polymers
  • Stimuli-responsive and Functional Polymer Architectures
  • Self-healing and Reprocessable Polymer Systems
  • Polymers at Surfaces and Interfaces
  • New Industrial Developments for Polymeric Materials
  • Polymers meet Biology/Biochemistry
  • Polymers from Renewable Resources
  • Polymers for Energy Applications

 
Registration deadline is 15 Januray 2017 – only a few days left, don’t delay!
