Under the Auspices of EPF




This conference brings together academics and industrial experts in the field to present and discuss innovation in chemistry related to wellbeing, beauty and health.

The main topics of the conference are: Biomaterials, Cosmetic chemistry, Pharmaceutical chemistry, Food chemistry and Applied chemistry

We will also hold a Session for Young Scientists during the conference.

The 9th Conference on "Times of Polymers (TOP) & Composites" is organized by Italian groups on polymer science and composites. Conference provides a forum for scientists and engineers throughout the world interested in the timescales of polymers and composites processing, structure and properties. As time is the driving concept in the polymer science community, TOP-Conferences include sessions on various topics and provide opportunities for exchanging ideas and opinions on both fundamental science and industry-relevant subjects.

I am very pleased to announce the symposium entitled "Block-copolymer self-assembly: fundamentals and applications" to be held in the 2018 E-MRS SPRING MEETING scheduled from June 18 to 22 at the Convention Centre in Strasbourg (France) The symposium focuses on the self-assembly of block copolymers, reporting recent advances in the understanding of their basic properties and latest progresses towards their technological exploitation.

The 82nd Prague Meeting on Macromolecules - Polymer Networks and Gels 2018 and 24th meeting of the international Polymer Networks Group will provide a discussion forum for participants from academia and industry engaged in science and technology of polymer gels and networks, both synthetic and natural. Special attention will be paid to hydrogels used in biomedical applications and to issues related to energy, natural sources and planet sustention via advanced materials design and application.

Our first International Conference on Bio-based Polymers and Composites (BiPoCo) was organized in 2012 focusing on the characterization, modification and application of biopolymers. The success of the conference initiated the organization of BiPoCo 2014 in Visegrád and the BiPoCo 2016 meeting in Szeged. The scope of the conference was extended with topics on smart, nano-structured systems for controlled molecular release and particular attention was paid to the biomedical application of polymers. The positive feedback given by the participants of the BiPoCo 2016 meeting encouraged us to organize the conference for the fourth time in 2018 with a renewed scope reflecting the current trends in the synthesis and application of biopolymers.

The conference will cover all relevant topics of interest in Polymer Science and more specifically the areas of:

  • Recent Developments in Polymer Synthesis and Characterization Methods;
  • Polymer Physics; Polymer Engineering;
  • Biopolymers & Applications;
  • Polymers for Emerging Technologies (Energy, Organic Electronics, Environment, Nanotechnology);
  • Advances in Polymer Theory and Simulations;
  • http://www.polyconf12.grPolymers in Industry

Furthermore, a special session will take place honoring the memory of the late professor Marios Kosmas (for this session specific invited speakers will talk based on their joined collaboration with the late Professor or due to their similar research interests).


The conference aims to bring together researchers from academia, research organisations and industry in the very important area of filled systems and polymer mixtures (23-26 April 2019, Palermo Italy).

The technical programme will feature plenary / keynote lectures, invited talks and oral and poster presentations. It will cover all major relevant topics of current interest in the following areas: Polymer Blends; Interfaces and Interphases; Polymer Composites and Nanocomposites; Nanostructured Polymers; Functional Materials; Bio-based Polymers and Biocomposites; Modern applications of Polymer systems.                                                                                                                             



Other Events




The fourth 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 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.

The First International Conference on 4D Materials and Systems (4DMS) will be held in Yonezawa, Yamagata, Japan from August 26-30, 2018 at the Faculty of Engineering, Yamagata University, Yonezawa, Japan.

This international conference will bring together engineers, medical professionals, clinicians, chemists, biologists, and physicists under the same roof, to initiate roadmap, and share results and discuss issues related to the latest advancements in the fundamental science and technological developments in challenges and innovations in polymer gels and network materials; electrochemical materials and devices for energy conversion and storage; smart engineering materials, robotics, soft-smart robotics; material processing â theoretical and experimental approach; and printed and flexible electronics.

This conference has five parallel conference tracks: 1. Gel Symposium, 2. Flexible and Printed Electronics, 3. Material Processing, 4. Electrochemical Materials and Devices for Energy Conversion and Storage, 5. Sensors and Systems.

The meeting is the 12th in the ISP series of conferences started in 1995, on the physics and physical chemistry of polyelectrolytes, with a focus on understanding how electrostatic interactions determine and influence the behaviour of synthetic and biological charged macromolecules in solution, in complexes and at interfaces. We aim at continuing the success of the 11th edition in Moscow (2016) by providing a stimulating forum with prominent keynote and invited speakers, ample opportunities for oral and poster presentations, and plenty of opportunities to discuss and interact with colleagues. Wageningen is conveniently located, just one hour by public transport from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
