The conference programme will include nine plenary talks (of 40 minutes each) by invited speakers with three parallel sessions, each with featured speakers, supplemented by contributed oral and poster presentations.
To contribute to poster programmes please visit the submit abstract page.
An App is available for Frontiers in Polymer Science and will appear in the Elsevier Conference App shortly before the conference.
Install the Elsevier Conferences app on your phone or tablet by following the links below or by searching for "Elsevier Conferences" in the App Store or on Google Play.
Once you have installed this app, you will find the Frontiers in Polymer Science App (when available) at the top of the screen. Simply tap the event and select ‘Install’ to download the interactive conference programme to your device.
The conference app will include information on presentations, speakers, exhibitors and more. It will allow you to plan what presentations to attend, add notes to the program, make lists via the To Do feature and add custom tags to presentations and exhibitors.
Instant access to all conference information Have instant access to complete information for each presentation, session, person, exhibitor and sponsor – wherever you are.
Create your personalised programme Pick and choose sessions from within the parallel sessions to build your own programme.
Keep track with to-dos, notes and tags You can add a Note to anything in the programme. Make lists via the To Do feature and add custom Tags to presentations, people and exhibitors.
Share content more easily Sharing content with others is easy Sharing content with others is easy – simply export to email or share via Facebook or Twitter direct from the App.
Internet access is only required once to download the conference app. After that, all of the data is available in the app, making it easy to access while traveling or at sites without a WiFi connection. You will require internet access to view the abstracts and to receive updates.

Polymer continues to support excellence in research by creating awards that stimulate the publication of outstanding papers. The Andrew Keller Award for Best European Paper recognizes groundbreaking research submitted to Polymer in 2022 by authors with European affiliations.Prof. Andrew Keller FRS (1925-1999) was a pioneering researcher in Polymer Physics at Bristol University, U.K. His discovery of the structure of polyethylene single crystals led him, in 1957, to propose the famous chain-folding model that had paradigm-changing repercussions in Polymer Science. While he devoted most of his research career to understanding the structure and morphology of polymer crystals, he also made outstanding contributions in the fields of block copolymers, liquid crystalline polymers, gelation, flow-induced crystallization (both in solution and in the melt), high-pressure crystallization, polymorphism, and the roles of mesophases and transient states in polymer crystallization. He was also the founder of the British Polymer Physics Group. Among the many significant awards he received were:
1964 High Polymer Physics Prize, American Physical Society 1969 Prize of Materials Science Club of Great Britain 1972 Fellow of The Royal Society 1975 Swinburne Medal of the Plastics and Rubber Institute, London 1980 Centennial Scholar and Medal, Case Institute of Technology, Cleveland, Ohio 1981 Clyde Medal of the University of Utah 1983 Max Born Medal and Prize 1983 Fraser Price Memorial Award, University of Massachusetts 1984 Rumford Medal of The Royal Society 1984 Medal of the Collège de France, Paris 1994 Elected member of the Academia Europaea 1998 Elected External Member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences
Information on the 2023 Award will be available shortly.
