Australasian Polymer Symposium (APS)

On behalf of the Polymer Division of The Royal Australian Chemical Society (RACI), it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 37th Australasian Polymer Symposium. 37APS will be held from the 10 – 13 November 2019 at the Novotel Twin Waters Resort, located on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Australia.

The themes for 37APS will cover all areas of polymer science, engineering and technologies from the latest innovations and new methods in synthesis, polymeric architectures and nanoparticles, characterisation, processing and molecular modelling to the advanced applications of polymers in health, nano-medicine, energy, electronic materials and sustainability as well as polymers in industry and translational research. This APS will also host a special theme dealing with issues around polymer waste and biodegradability.

The APS has a long established tradition of bringing together the polymer science and engineering communities of Australasia as well as esteemed polymer colleagues from around the world; from the current world-leaders in polymer research to academics, researchers, research students and industrial professionals from universities, research organisations and polymer industry in Australia and around World.

As in past years, the APS will provide an opportunity for national and international networking through an exciting forum of both formal presentations as well as informal idea exchanges in order to contribute towards the development of frontier polymer research. The program will be specifically designed to provide ample opportunities for informal discussions and networking throughout the conference.

We encourage you to attend what promises to be another stimulating polymer forum in 2019.
