Under the Auspices of EPF
The SILESIAN MEETINGS ON POLYMER MATERIALS POLYMAT2022 conference, dedicated to the memory of prof. Andrzej Dworak, will be held on 17th of March 2022 in Zabrze, Poland.
Prof. Dworak was an undisputed authority in the field of chemistry of polymers and polymer materials. Distinguished international scientists, friends of Professor Andrzej Dworak, kindly agreed to deliver plenary lectures: Prof. Brigitte Voit (Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research, Dresden, Germany), Prof. Rainer Haag (Freie Universität Berlin, Germany), Prof. Stergios Pispas (National Hellenic Research Foundation, Athens, Greece), Prof. Axel Müller (Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany) and Prof. Petar Petrov (Institute of Polymers, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia, Bulgaria).
The conference is organized under the auspices of the European Polymer Federation (EPF), in cooperation with the Committee of Chemistry of Polish Academy of Sciences, the Polish Chemical Society and with the journals Polymers and Przemysł Chemiczny.
The aim of the conference is to exchange current knowledge and create opportunities to exchange experiences in the field of polymer chemistry, closely related to the synthesis, characterization, modification and application of polymers. The conference will be an excellent opportunity to integrate the scientific community of universities and institutes, students, experts and engineers active in the field of precisely constructed polymers for new applications.

The purpose of the school is to exhaustively cover the state-of-the-art and the future perspectives of Macromolecular Science for Advanced Materials for applications in smart and sustainable products. These intriguing organic based systems, able to fulfil the growing demands of multifunctional materials, are realized /via/ a fine macromolecular design, by using innovative processing methods and technologies to boost specific features keeping in sight the main social challenges to be faced. In light of this, the topics covered by this school will concern all the different scientific aspects related to the formulation of polymer-based and hybrid systems, tailored to environmental sustainability (water and air remediation), energy (production and storage) and healthcare (sensors, body protection, rehabilitation and biomedical applications). The industrial point of view will be also take into account. (http://www.ipcb.ct.cnr.it/erice2022/index.html)
