This volume contains key papers presented at the International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization, held in Boston, Massachusetts on June 30 - July 4, 2003 under the auspices of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). This meeting, held at the Tremont Hotel, featured a series of invited and contributed papers and posters, covering the areas of anionic, cationic, and related polymerization processes. The papers dealt with these polymerization systems in the broadest sense, with contributions ranging from new syntheses -- to mechanistic studies -- to applications. The meeting brought together most of the leading experts in this field, from academia and industry, as well as a significant number of younger scientists and students.

This meeting would not have been possible without the hard work of the chairmen and principal organizers, Professors Rudolf Faust and Roderick P. Quirk. We would like to thank them for organizing an exceptional conference in the very pleasant surroundings of Boston in the middle of summer. They were aided in this task by the Organizing Committee: Drs. J. Crivello, T. Long, J. Mays, J. Puskas, T. Shaffer, and R. Storey. This meeting could also not have taken place without the generous support of various sponsors: IUPAC; American Chemical Society - Polymer Division; The University of Akron; University of Massachusetts, Lowell; National Science Foundation DMR; American Chemical Society - Petroleum Research Fund; Asahi Kasei Corp.; BASF; Bayer Corp.; Boston Scientific Corp.; Bridgestone/Firestone; Chemetall Foote Corp.; Chevron Phillips Chem. Co.; General Electric; Kaneka Corp.; Korea Kumho Petrochemical Co., Ltd.; Kraton Polymers; Sartomer; Synthomer; John Wiley & Sons, Inc.; Wyatt Technology Corp. We are indebted to these organizations for their support.
