Join us for Frontiers in Polymer Science 2023: This major conference regularly attracts around 600 interdisciplinary delegates to discuss and review pioneering work in the field of modern polymer science.
An exciting programme will include expert plenary talks and three parallel sessions, each with featured speakers, supplemented by contributed oral and poster presentations.
Present your own research
Abstracts are invited for talks and posters by 13 January 2023 on the following main themes:
- Advanced Precision Synthesis
- Physics of Dynamic and Non-equilibrium Polymer Structures
- Polymer Technology for Solving Societal Energy and Environmental Challenges
Frontiers in Polymer Science will be held 28-31 May 2023 in Gothenburg, Sweden in association with Progress in Polymer Science, Polymer, EPJ, Polymer Degradation and Stability, Reactive and Functional Polymers and Polymer Testing and in partnership with Materials Today.
The Symposium will feature 9 plenary lectures, given by outstanding scientists whose exceptionally work represents new frontiers for polymer science. Three parallel sessions with invited and contributed talks in addition to large poster sessions will cover interdisciplinary hot topics within polymer science.
The 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.
As with the previous six editions of this top quality international event, we expect to attract more than 600 participants from over 50 countries.
We look forward to welcoming you to Gothenburg in 2023!
