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.

POLY-CHAR Auckland was initially planned to take place in January 2021. Circumstances associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and the health and safety of every conference attendee triggered the postponement first to 17-20 January 2022 and now it is further postponed to 2023.
In the meantime the preparation for POLY-CHAR 2022 is proceeding as a live digital hybrid event and will take place in Germany in May 2022.
The Committee will safeguard all the hard work the organizing team has completed so far and shift to the new conference date.

POLY-CHAR 2023 World Forum on Advanced Materials and “Short Course on Polymer Characterization”

The Annual Forum on Advanced Materials brings together professors, students and people from industry involved in theory, experiment and computer simulations under one roof to achieve systemic understanding of connections between structures, interactions, processing and properties in polymer materials science. This is a long-term activity, not aimed at temporary fashions.

From the very beginning one of the important aims of the conference is to give young scientists a forum to present their result and to meet with distinguished scientists from all over the world. The conference to set its mark in all parts of the work in order so that students and scientists from all parts of the world have a chance to participate at least occasionally.
