1–5 July 2018 The World Polymer Congress MACRO 2018
The World Polymer Congress MACRO 2018 is being held in Cairns at the Cairns Convention Centre from 1-5 July.
The program covers all areas of polymer science and engineering, including synthesis, characterisation, processing, modeling and materials. A large number of sessions will also cover topics at the interface between polymer science and other disciplines that address a range of important issues faced by our modern society, for instance in medicine, energy and the environment. Such a varied programme shows how multidisciplinary polymer science has become and how collaborations across fields are the best approach to tackle today’s challenges.
Over the years, the MACRO conference has developed a strong reputation for bringing together the latest polymer research from top international polymer scientists and, again in 2018, a number of leading Plenary and Keynote Speakers will be attending from around the world.
The reputation of MACRO events goes further than great science; they are also famous for their warm and convivial atmosphere. The 2018 Congress starts with a welcome reception and extends to a number of special events throughout the conference that will highlight Australian heritage and the region of Cairns, including the Great Barrier Reef, and concluding with the conference banquet.
For enquiries regarding delegate registrations or any other questions you may have about the Congress, please contact Emma Harrison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
