This conference has now taken place. Abstract submission is currently closed.
Best poster awards: Six best poster awards will be offered. Each participant at the Symposium will be given voting ballots upon registration and will be expected to vote for their favourite poster at the end of each of the three poster sessions. The voting box will be placed at the Elsevier booth. The winners of the 6 Best Poster Awards will be announced at the Awards Ceremony at the end of the Symposium.
For revisions or queries regarding papers already submitted
If you do not receive acknowledgement for your abstract submission or you wish to make any essential revisions to an abstract already submitted, please DO NOT RESUBMIT your abstract, as this may lead to duplication. Please contact us(opens in new tab/window) with details of any revisions or queries. Please quote your reference number if you have one.

The optional Frontiers in Polymer Science Gala Dinner will be held on Wednesday 31 May at Universeum(opens in new tab/window) in Gothenburg.
Universeum is the national science centre of Sweden and a powerful arena for learning and popular education in science, technology and sustainable development.
A welcome drink and starter will be served in the Aquarium Hall followed by dinner in the restaurant.
Universeum is within walking distance of the symposium venue
There will be a two-course seated meal after the welcome drink and starter served in the Aquarium Hall.
This will be great opportunity to mingle with colleagues and relax, tickets to the dinner can be booked at the same time as registering for the conference and cost €70 (+VAT).
Places are limited, so to avoid disappointment please book early via the online registration system
