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!

IPST2013 Conference: 7th-10th October 2013 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Taking the opportunity of a very successful meeting on Innovation in Polymer Science and Technology 2011 (IPST2011) in Bali, Indonesia, organised by the Indonesian Polymer Association (HPI) under the auspices of Asian Polymer Association (APA), it is our great honor to organise and hold the coming IPST2013 meeting on October 7 – 10, 2013  in Yogyakarta, Indonesia under the auspices of Federation of Asian Polymer Societies (FAPS).

In IPST2013, we are planning to organise 5 Microsymposia on:

(1) Nanostructure, Composites and Polymer Physics
(2) Rubber Process and Technology
(3) Polymers for Medical and Pharmacy Applications
(4) Polymer Technology in New and Renewable Energy
(5) Green and Degradable Polymers covering the topic of Nanostructure Polymers, Blends and Composites; Polymer Technology in New and Renewable Energy; Fiber and Fibrous Polymer Materials; Smart and Functionalized Polymers; Advanced Synthesis Polymers; Green, Sustainable and Bio-polymers.

With a very unique combination of ancient temples of UNESCO World Heritage such as Borobudur and Prambanan, strong traditions, classical and contemporary Javanese cultures, natural forces and also history on Indonesia’s war of independent make Yogyakarta a very worthwhile place to be visited and hosting IPST2013, the International Polymer Conference and Exhibition.

1st Polymer Chemistry International Symposium

1st Polymer Chemistry International Symposium

The 1st Polymer Chemistry International Symposium will take place in China this year. The purpose of RSC journal symposia is to bring together scientists in a stimulating and friendly environment that will foster collaborations between the researchers and the universities involved in the meetings.

The symposium will comprise of three one-day meetings held at three separate institutions. Each one day meeting will feature talks by Polymer Chemistry international speakers from the journal’s Editorial Board, in addition to a collection of local speakers. The symposium is organised by Polymer Chemistry, the Royal Society of Chemistry and the local host organisations. The meetings will take place at Tsinghua University (Beijing), Suzhou University and Fudan University (Shanghai). 

The symposium will appeal to academic and industrial scientists with an interest in all aspects of synthetic and biological macromolecules. Attendance at the symposium is free of charge and student participation is strongly encouraged.

Conference: 3rd International Nanomedicine Conference

From this seaside location, we will assemble a world-class group of researchers and clinicians, with plenary speakers including Dr Alan Trounson President of the Californian Institute of Regenerative Medicine and John Pickup Professor of Diabetes and Metabolism at King’s College London School of Medicine, Guy’s Hospital UK. These two will be joined by an ever growing list of nanomedicine leaders.

As with previous years, the great Australian hospitality will make this a conference to remember, including social and networking activities that are aimed at forging collaboration and exploring ideas though multidisciplinary approaches. But it will be the presentation of research that will again be the star of this conference.

All researchers be they from medicine, chemistry or science that work in the nanomedicine field are acutely aware of the great need to prevent and cure diseases which have emotional, social and economic ramifications. We, either working at the bench or at the bedside, acknowledge that the application of nanotechnology into healthcare offers possibilities in the key areas of Target Delivery, Sensing, Diagnostics, Regenerative Medicine, Imaging, Translational Medicine, and NanoSafety.

Date: 2-July-2012 – 04 July 2012

Venue: Crowne Plaza Hotel Ardan Street COOGEE BEACH SYDNEY AUSTRALIA

Conference: Europolymer Conference 2012 (EUPOC 2012), 3rd – 7th June

Polymer Chemistry has organised a poster prize at EUPOC 2012. Organised by The European Polymer Federation the conference will be held near Lake Garda at the Palazzo Feltrinelli, Gargnano, Italy. The topic of the 2012 conference is: “Porous Polymer-based Systems: From Design to Application”

The organisers hope the conference will bring together the various disparate communities that work on porous polymers. These communities include those working on the development of materials for membranes, catalysis, absorption, microelectronics, drug delivery, tissue engineering, and lightweight materials. The conference will present topics with similar underlying themes that originate in a variety of research areas with very different perspectives.

The Invited Speakers include:
Markus Antonietti
, MPI-KG Golm (Germany); Alexander Bismarck, Imperial College (UK); Neil R. Cameron, University of Durham (UK); Andrew I. Cooper, University of Liverpool (UK); Herve Deleuze, Université Bordeaux I (France); Gaetano Guerra, Università di Salerno (Italy); Neil McKeown, Cardiff University (UK); Philippe Mesini, CNRS (France); Manuel Monleón Pradas, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (Spain); Julio San Román, CSIC (Spain); Edwin L. Thomas, Rice University (USA); Mathias Ulbricht, Universität Essen (Germany); Ulrich Wiesner, Cornell University (USA).
