32 No. 6
20–24 March 2011
Polymers have invaded almost all areas of present-day technology and the basic sciences, ranging from drug-delivery systems, biocompatibility, protein design and synthesis, to high-tech applications such as the design of electronic devices, nanomaterials, conduction, and photosensitivity. Polymers are playing a leading role in the advancement of nanotechnology today.
In this context, the POLYCHAR World Forum on Advanced Materials will take place in Katmandu, Nepal, form 20–24 March 2011. The focus of the conference is on properties and characterization on the one hand, and synthesis, processing, and manufacturing on the other, with emphasis on the performance of all classes of polymers. All classes of materials, including thermoplastics, thermosets, alloys, heterogeneous and molecular composites, biomaterials, hybrids, and nanohybrids are included.
The conference will bring together scientists and technologists to discuss the emerging areas of proteomics, nucleonics, tissue engineering, drug delivery, and light-emitting polymers. Specific topics to be covered include Predictive Methods; Synthesis; Nanomaterials and Smart Materials; Mechanical Properties and Performance; Dielectrical and Electrical Properties; Surfaces, Interfaces, and Tribology; Rheology, Solutions, and Processing; Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering; Natural and Biodegradable Materials and Recycling; and Characterization and Structure-Properties Relationships.
