- IUPAC-sponsored event -

6th Brazilian Polymer Conference/ 9th International Macromolecular Colloquium, 11-15 November 2001, Gramado, Brazil

> Back to Calendar

This conference will feature approximately 500 lectures and posters covering diverse academic and technological areas in the polymer field. The program is expected to appeal to academic and industrial researchers; engineers and technicians involved in research, product development, quality control, technical assistance, and industrial production; plastics and rubber consultants; and government scientists and technologists responsible for planning and industrial development. About 500 scientific participants from Brazil, other countries of South America, Europe, and the United States are expected to attend.

Simultaneous subsections of the meeting will focus on adhesives, additives, biopolymers, alloys and polymer blends, characterization/instrumentation, fillers and reinforcing fibers, composites, reinforcement loads and fibers, product design and development, marketing, elastomers, structure and properties, gels and membranes, polymerization methods, polymer processing, recycling, and synthesis.

In conjunction with the conference, a workshop will be held covering themes of industrial interest such as plastics technology; rubber and adhesives; recycling of plastics and rubbers; biodegradable polymers; generation and transfer of technology, including successful models in Brazil and abroad; and resources, strategies, and partnerships for fostering official support and private investment in technology.
