Plenary and Invited Speakers

The Conference Program will comprise two presentation formats, oral presentations and poster presentations. Two (2) Plenary Lectures and nine (9) Invited Talks will be delivered by leaders in the polymer field. It is expected that more than 80 oral presentations will occupy the dense conference program. Poster presentations have been organized in two (2) sessions (Monday and Tuesday evenings), and will run during cocktail receptions. The posters will be on display during the whole day of each poster session.
