The Brazilian Polymer Association (ABPol) is pleased to invite professionals and students to attend the World Polymer Congress—MACRO 2006, the 41st International Symposium on Macromolecules, which will be held 16–21 July 2006 at the Convention Center of the Intercontinental Hotel in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The symposium, organized under the general theme “Polymers-Promoting Life Quality,” is an international forum for discussion of scientific and technological themes in the polymer field. More than 1500 participants from the academic sector, research and development institutions, and important industries in the polymer field are expected.
Oral presentations and poster communications will cover a wide variety of themes, such as biopolymers, polymer blends, characterization, polymer gels, nanocomposites, polymer processing, polymers for controlled drug release, recycling and synthesis, as well as polymer education. There will be special sessions on market-oriented themes and specific themes of industrial interest. The congress will feature around 10 plenary lectures and 230 invited lectures, which will be given by renowned scientists from different countries. The congress will feature the following sessions:
- polymer chemistry and reaction processes
- polymer characterization
- polymer processing
- structure and properties of polymers
- thermodynamics of polymers solutions
- polymer blends and composites
- modelling and simulation
- novel applications for polymers
- biomaterials and environment
- advances in commercial polymers
- polymer education
- international cooperation
During the congress, there will also be an industrial exhibition of products and equipments from different companies.
The deadline for abstract submission is 10 March 2006.
