Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. See program details.

34th International Symposium on Polymer Analysis and Characterization

  • This event has passed.

The aim of ISPAC is to create a platform for academics to collaborate with each other, and to also facilitate interactions between academia and industry. ISPAC also aims at creating knowledge transfer and sharing platforms, that ensure continuity in polymer analysis research.

The objectives of the conference are therefore as follows:
(1) To identify specific pending issues with product development and characterization, as well as the advances made in the characterization and analysis of polymeric materials.
(2) To evaluate the main collaborative opportunities between academics, and between academia and industry.
(3) To enable the sharing of state-of the art knowledge on the different analytical approaches between researchers and industry, in a way that will broaden and deepen their individual work and initiate new collaborations.
(4) To enable transfer of knowledge from seasoned researchers to budding polymer analytical chemists.
