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.

48th World Polymer Congress – MACRO2020+

  • This event has passed.

This event was initially scheduled 5-9 July 2020 and now postponed to 16-20 May 2021

Over the years, the MACRO conference has developed a strong reputation for bringing together the latest polymer research from top international polymer scientists. In 2020, we will again welcome a number of leading Plenary and Keynote Speakers from around the world and also a very large number of contributors to what promises to be another exciting forum. We would like to extend a particular welcome to early career researchers and in particular students and postdocs, who are key to the future development of our discipline.
