APS Banner

On behalf of the Polymer Division of The Royal Australian Chemical Society (RACI), it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 36th Australasian Polymer Symposium. 36APS will be held from the 20 – 23 November 2016 at the Mantra Lorne, located in the middle of the beautiful Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia.

The themes for 36APS 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.

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 2016.
