4th Symposium on Innovative Polymers for Controlled Delivery
2016-09-23 to 2016-09-26
Suzhou, China
SIPCD held biennially since 2010 has been established as a high-level conference in the fields of biomaterials, controlled drug delivery, protein and cell delivery, gene delivery, polymer-based diagnostics, and tissue engineering. In SIPCD 2016, we will welcome about 550 participants from all over the world. SIPCD 2016 has planned 4 plenary and 27 keynote lectures by leading experts, one educational lecture on "how to write a great paper" by a senior publisher, and about 300 poster presentations by prominent young researchers and PhD students. Moreover, 12 Rising Stars (young staff, less than 40 years old) will be selected by the committee for 5 mins oral presentation. The symposium is organized in one single session, thus offering you the possibility to be present at all invited lectures and to participate in lively discussions about the most recent developments as well as challenges in innovative delivery. link

Polydays 2016: Integrating function into polymers
2016-09-28 to 2016-09-30
University of Potsdam, Germany

The main topic of the conference is the question "How to introduce different functionalities to polymer materials?". The tremendous need of designing and developing new functional materials originates from modern society challenges to improve the quality of life, to increase environmental protection and to develop advanced technologies. In this respect, polymer science has strongly moved towards functional polymer systems, in which properly designed molecular and macromolecular units act in concert to enable a certain function or action.

The conference is thought to compile three major lines of research towards functional polymer systems: (i) what we can learn from Nature, (ii) how can we make best use of the specific mechanical, optical, and electrical properties of polymers, and (iii) how can we introduce new functionalities through the incorporation of inorganic materials. link

6th International Conference on Polyolefin Characterization
2016-11-06 to 2016-11-09
The 6th International Conference on Polyolefin Characterization will be held on November 6 - 9, 2016 in Shanghai, China. It will focus on polyolefin molecular architecture characterization, including molar mass distribution, comonomer incorporation and distribution, long chain branching, crystallinity and rheological properties. link

36th Australasian Polymer Symposium
2016-11-20 to 2016-11-23
Victoria, Australia

The themes for 36APS will cover all areas of polymer science, engineering and technologies from the latest innovations and new methods in synthesis, polymeric architectures and nanoparticles, characterisation, processing and molecular modelling to the advanced applications of polymers in health, nano-medicine, energy, electronic materials and sustainability as well as polymers in industry and translational research. The APS has a long established tradition of bringing together the polymer science and engineering communities of Australasia as well as esteemed polymer colleagues from around the world; from the current world-leaders in polymer research to academics, researchers, research students and industrial professionals from universities, research organisations and polymer industry in Australia and around World. link
