International Polymer Characterization Forum (IPCF) POLY-CHAR 2019
The 2019 IPCF will focus on the theme ‘Polymers for Sustainable Global Development’. There will be some side events related to sustainable ‘Solid Waste Management’. A short course for young scientists and students will be organized on May 19, 2019.
The aim of the conference is to bring together on one platform researchers (senior professors, young scientists, students and experts from industries as well as from academia) involved in theory, experiment and computer simulations to achieve systemic understanding of connections between structures, interactions and properties of polymers.
The conference is extremely relevant in the enhancing the development of Science, Technology and Innovation environment of the region at large. The conference venue lies in the region where two biggest economies of the world are advancing in a rapid pace. The proposed conference will promote the international collaboration and hence support the development of chemistry activities in the region in general and for the rapid progress of polymer education and researches in Nepal.
The conference will provide us with an excellent opportunity to bring together scientists and technologists to stimulate and brain storm development in the emerging areas of proteomics, nucleonics, tissue engineering, drug delivery, light emitting polymers, green polymers and novel nanocomposites. These developments have wide implications for search to energy problems. The areas emphasized are Predictive Methods; Synthesis; Nanomaterials and Smart Materials; Mechanical Properties and Performance; Dielectrical and Electrical Properties; Surfaces, Interfaces and Tribology; Rheology, Solutions and Processing; Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering; Natural and Biodegradable Materials and Recycling; and Characterization and Structure-Properties Relationships.
