24–27 September 2018 Biennial Meeting of the GDCh-Division of Macromolecular Chemistry together with SFB 1176 "Molecular Structuring of Soft Matter"
Aim of the conference
This year’s conference focus is “Dimensional Control of Polymer Materials – From Synthesis to Function”.
The design of polymer materials from highly defined macromolecules is in the focus of the conference. Molecular definition can be one-dimensional, along a chain, two-dimensional, within a surface, or three-dimensional. Noteworthy, the function of macromolecular materials is primarily determined by their molecular structure and the thereof resulting spatial arrangement and linkages.
The focus on the molecular structure of soft materials by a dimensional organizing principle – determining the function – opens the possibility to classify the synthetic challenges as well as to transfer the scientific findings from one to the next dimension.
This conference will address developments in functional polymers in all dimensions and aims at bringing together experts from both academia and industry to present and discuss novel ideas, applications, latest breakthroughs, developments, opportunities, and challenges of dimensional control of the macromolecular structure.
The scope of the conference covers all aspects of Dimensional Control of Polymer Materials with a special focus on the synthesis and characterization of polymers, the structuring of polymers on surfaces and in networks, their resulting functional aspects with applications as smart materials, as well as polymers derived from sustainable sources.

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.For more details, to sign for e-mail list, and to submit abstract, see

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.
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.
Conference Background and History
The aim of this conference is to bring together scientists, engineers and students with an interest in bio-based polymers. Bio-based polymers include various synthetic polymers derived from renewable biomass resources and biopolymers (such as polysaccharides, polyesters, nucleic acids, polyamides, polyisoprenoids, and polyphenols), their derivatives, and their blends and composites. Fossil resources are limited, while renewable resources are sustainable. In the past few decades, the science and technology of bio-based polymers have experienced a tremendous rise in significance at both the academic and industrial sections. In addition, a lot of bio-based polymers also received great attention in biomedical applications due to their good biocompatibility and biodegradation properties. Today, research and development on bio-based polymers are rapidly expanding in both the macromolecular and biological sciences.
Previous conferences have been successfully held in November 2003 at RIKEN, Wako, Japan, in November 2009 at Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penang, Malaysia, in October 2011 at Peking University, Beijing, China, in September 2013 at Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea, and in June 2015 at National University of Singapore, Singapore, respectively.
The 6th International Conference on Bio-based Polymers (ICBP2017) will be held in Yuan Ze University, Taoyuan, Taiwan on May 14-17, 2017. The conference is designed to offer a unique opportunity not only to take a critical examination of the milestone achievements in bio-based polymers but more significantly, to discuss how bio-based polymers can contribute to global sustainability and health cares in the 21st century. The program will feature contributions from both established and young scientists and engineers from both academics and industries, and will provide a platform for representatives from all over the world.
