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

IPST2013: International Polymer Conference, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

The Innovation in Polymer Science and Technology 2013 (IPST2013) was held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia on October 7 – 10, 2013 and organised by the Indonesian Polymer Association (HPI). It was attended by more than 250 participants from over 20 countries; presenting about 200 paper works consisting of 102 oral and 108 poster presentations, including 7 plenary speakers, and 24 keynote speakers. To date, this event was the biggest international polymer conference, organised by the Indonesian Polymer Association.

IPST2013

The conference was officially opened by the representative of Indonesian government, the Ministry of Research and Technology of Indonesia. The Indonesian Polymer Association presented a 2013 HPI award to Dr. M. Sugandi (a former of the HPI’s chair) for her lifetime contributions in polymer research as well as in the polymer society in Indonesia. The best student posters were awarded to 5 students: Arum Patriati (Indonesia), Shih Ming Chang (Taiwan), Emiko Ohara (Japan), Ayami Nagayama (Japan), and Koay Seong Chun (Malaysia). Zainon Othman (Malaysia) and Firman Kurniawansyah (Indonesia) were awarded the best oral presentation prize.

The IPST2013 was officially closed by Ms. Eniya L. Dewi, the chair of the IPST2013 and ICFCHT2013. The next conference will take place in 2016 (IPST2016) and will be held in Padang, West Sumatera, Indonesia. We look forward to seeing you there!
