Submit poster abstracts by 9 January 2014

Join top plenary speakers and international delegates at the Fourth International Symposium Frontiers in Polymer Science.

The 3-day symposium will consist of 15 plenary lectures (of 50 minutes each), given by outstanding scientists whose exceptionally creative work opens up new frontiers for polymer science. In addition, there will be three poster sessions (each consisting of two parts within the same day) allowing for the viewing of a large number of poster presentations.

Abstracts for poster presentations covering all aspects of modern polymer science are welcome.

We expect around 600 participants from over 50 countries, as we already had at the previous three meetings in 2009, 2011 and 2013. For details please visit the History page.
