Polymers are everywhere in today´s life and find applications in packaging, storage, buildings, agriculture, transportation, mobility, electronics, medicine, energy and many more.
PM14 addressed all major aspects of polymer science spanning from novel synthetic approaches, the creation of new functional polymers, the characterization of macromolecules and polymers, innovative processing technologies, polymer testing, and polymers@work in many applications, but also included the topics of renewable polymers, recycling and sustainability aspects.
The PM14 was the continuation of the very successful three river DVSPM-conference series (Danube-Vlatava-Sava-Polymer meeting) which became one of the most important meetings in polymer science in Central Europe, as well as on the predecessor conferences “Austrian Slovenian Polymer Meetings” and “Advances in Polymer Science & Technology”. However, the origin can be traced back to the Austrian Polymer Meetings, which started 25 years ago in Seggau, very close to Graz.
The Polymer Meeting 15 will most probably take place in Slovakia in late 2023 and will be organized by Prof. Igor Lacik (Slovak Academy of Sciences, Bratislava). We hope to meet you there!
