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. The conference must be located in a country represented in IUPAC by a National Adhering Organization. See program details.

The 2020 edition of  the International Polymer Characterization Forum POLY-CHAR will be held in Venice, in Italy, and will focus on the theme ‘Careers and perspectives in Polymers’. Particularly, focus will be posed on the various applications of polymer science, for example for industrial, forensic, cultural heritage conservation, biomedical or material development fields. A short course for young scientists, students and participants from the industry will be organized on May 18, 2020.

The venue, the newly built M9 museum, is located in Mestre, in the mainland of Venice, in a less crowded and expensive area than the historic city.
