The IUPAC International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization (IP’01)–the fourth in the series after Istanbul (1995), Paris (1997), and Kyoto (1999)–was held in Crete, Greece, in October 2001. The major topics of the symposium included anionic and cationic polymerization, both vinyl and ring opening, as well as living radical, metathesis, metal-coordination, template and enzymatic polymerization. One day of the symposium was devoted to polymer physical chemistry and physics. Most of the invited lectures and selected papers are compiled in this issue of Macromolecular Symposia, which provides an excellent overview of current research in this area.

The Crete Symposium was the first to incorporate lectures on polymer physical chemistry and physics. There were altogether over 240 active participants from about 30 countries. In total, 66 invited lectures, 29 oral lectures and 91 posters were presented.
