IP’15 – International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization

IP’15 - International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization

The 11th International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization (IP’15) will be held at Bordeaux University in the South West of France from 5th – 10th July 2015, organized and hosted by the Polymer Institute.

IP’15 will be the latest in a series of successful meetings, the most recent of which were held in Awaji (Japan, 2013), Akron (USA, 2011), Krakow (Poland, 2009), Kloster Banz (Germany, 2007), Goa (India, 2005), Boston (USA, 2003), Crete (2001, Greece).

IP’15 has roots from the series of international symposia on Cationic, Anionic, and Ring-Opening Polymerizations, which were merged as International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization in 1995, held in Istanbul (Turkey). Decision of the merger was made in the 11th International Symposium on Cationic Polymerization and Related Processes, held in Borovetz, Bulgaria, in 1993, with the recognition of closer relationship and interplay among these polymerization methods, in view of precise control of polymer structures and macromolecular architectures. Thus this symposium on Ionic Polymerization will be the 22nd symposium as the Cationic series as well as the 11th one named “Ionic Polymerization“.

Topics will cover academic and applied research in the areas of anionic, cationic, and related polymerization mechanisms. Contributions related to other methods of living/controlled polymerization (catalytic, controlled free-radical, and step-growth polymerizations) are welcome, as well as industrial applications and processes of these well-controlled polymerizations. For further details about the conference visit the website or email the organising committee.

4th Zing Polymer Chemistry Conference

The 4th Zing Polymer Chemistry Conference will be held on 10 – 13 December 2014 in Riviera Maya, Mexico, venue to be confirmed.

The field of polymer chemistry has experienced rapid growth over the last decade as a result of the expansion of synthetic techniques that have facilitated the realization of previously inaccessible materials. Macromolecules with complex structures and a diverse array of functionality can now be prepared with controlled molecular weights and precise architectures. Advances in the area of polymer physical chemistry and characterization have generated new insight into the structure-reactivity and structure-property relationships that govern the preparation and applications of new polymeric materials. The conference will focus on recent developments in the area of polymer synthesis and characterization and the application of polymeric materials in a variety of fields, including medicine and medical devices, smart materials, coatings, personal care products, structural materials, and many other areas. Researchers in polymer chemistry, materials science, chemical engineering, biomedical engineering and all others interested in learning more about the fundamental chemical principles governing polymer properties and behavior are encouraged to attend.

Abstract submission can be found here
Talk Consideration Deadline: 20th August 2014……..Poster Submission Deadline: 19th September 2014
