Polymer Gels and Networks
10–14 July 2005, Prague, Czech Republic
The 68th Prague Meeting on Macromolecules and 44th Microsymposium will provide a discussion forum for participants from academia and industry interested in the science and technology of synthetic and natural polymer gels and networks. The meeting will place emphasis on theoretical and experimental studies of the relations between the formation, chemical composition, structure, and properties of polymer networks and gels. Special attention will be paid to hydrogels used in biomedical applications, such as drug delivery and tissue engineering.
Meeting topics include preparation and chemical modification of networks and gels; gelation and network formation; gel and network states of matter; gels in life sciences, technology, and applications. The technical program includes about 10 main lectures, 10 invited lectures, and 20 oral lectures. Those participants who wish to present an oral lecture should submit a brief summary with the preliminary registration card to the PMM Secretariat before 31 December 2004. Two poster sessions are planned as well. The number of posters is not limited.
