Frontiers in Polymer Science will be held 5-8 May 2019 in Budapest, Hungary in association with Progress in Polymer Science, Polymer, EPJ, Polymer Degradation and Stability, Reactive and Functional Polymers and Polymer Testing.

Organised in partnership with Materials Today, the Symposium will offer an exciting new format of three parallel sessions with invited and contributed talks in addition to plenary lectures and poster sessions.

For 2019, in addition to the Editors-in-Chief of Polymer, we also welcome two new Chairs, Professor Matyjaszewski, the Editor-in-Chief of Progress in Polymer Science and Professor Vancso, the Editor-in-Chief of EPJ. The appointment of additional chairs and parallel sessions represent a scope expansion to enhance the scientific value and networking potential for delegates and will enable us to offer contributed talks for the first time.

The full 3-day symposium will consist of 9 plenary lectures, given by outstanding scientists whose exceptionally work represents new frontiers for polymer science. In addition, there will be three parallel sessions, and poster sessions which will cover interdisciplinary hot topics within Polymer Science.

The new Materials Today EPJ Award will be presented at the conference: This best paper award is for authors submitting a paper to a virtual special issue collection.

We expect to attract more than 600 participants from over 50 countries as was the case during the previous five editions of this top quality international event.

We hope that you will keep these dates free and join us in Budapest in 2019!
