Fluoropolymer 2018
2018-06-24 to 2018-06-27
Denver, CO, USA
Fluoropolymers are enabling materials which find applications in critical technologies involving energy storage and conversion, microelectronics and photonics, extreme environment applications, and biomaterials. Traditional fluoropolymer technology is nearly 80 years old and it maintains a growth rate above the US GNP. In addition to perfluoropolymers, partially fluorinated polymers will continue to impact a wide range of technologies as better control of their unique optical, electronic, processing, extreme environment stability, and surface properties are achieved. This will be the tenth biennial Fluoropolymer conference hosted by the Division of Polymer Chemistry. The Fluoropolymer workshops have been tremendously successful since 2000
-- don't miss this tenth installment.

The World Polymer Congress MACRO 2018
2018-07-01 to 2018-07-05
Cairns, Australia

The World Polymer Congress MACRO 2018 is being held in Cairns at the Cairns Convention Centre from 1-5 July.

The program covers all areas of polymer science and engineering, including synthesis, characterisation, processing, modeling and materials. A large number of sessions will also cover topics at the interface between polymer science and other disciplines that address a range of important issues faced by our modern society, for instance in medicine, energy and the environment. Such a varied programme shows how multidisciplinary polymer science has become and how collaborations across fields are the best approach to tackle today’s challenges.

Over the years, the MACRO conference has developed a strong reputation for bringing together the latest polymer research from top international polymer scientists and, again in 2018, a number of leading Plenary and Keynote Speakers will be attending from around the world.

The reputation of MACRO events goes further than great science; they are also famous for their warm and convivial atmosphere. The 2018 Congress starts with a welcome reception and extends to a number of special events throughout the conference that will highlight Australian heritage and the region of Cairns, including the Great Barrier Reef, and concluding with the conference banquet.

For enquiries regarding delegate registrations or any other questions you may have about the Congress, please contact Emma Harrison at .

Traverse City, MI, USA

Every three years, the small-angle scattering community comes together at the international small-angle conference to showcase recent technique advances and to document its wide-ranging impact on numerous scientific fields. These conferences are known to bring together the best and the most recognized scientists in the field with researchers from other areas. The future generation is well represented by students, post docs, and young scientists. Conferences are also famous for active participation of industrial partners, represented by both instrument manufacturers in the exhibition as well as industry researchers in the scientific program. Thanks to this broad community involvement, these conferences create unique meeting places where new relationships and collaborations are forged.

XVII International Small-Angle Scattering conference, SAS2018, returns this series to the US after 19 years.  SAS2018 will showcase the progress of small-angle scattering research in North America, including the many instruments at user facilities across the continent and the rich variety of research taking place. Coincident with major facility upgrades are renewed small-angle scattering capabilities across the U.S. (National Synchrotron Light Source-II, Advanced Photon Source, and Linac Coherent Light Source) which are either complete or well-in-progress, the SAS2018 conference offers a timely opportunity to promote stronger scientific and personal interactions.

Grand Traverse Resort & Spa in Traverse City, Michigan, was selected as an ideal venue to promote strong interactions among the conference participants and to host this conference in a more intimate setting, in the style of a Gordon Research Conference. This venue has extensive conference facilities and provides for numerous social activity opportunities for both participants as well travel companions. This time of year, Michigan provides unique opportunities for travel before or after conference during the colorful fall season.
