Biodegradable Polymers and Plastics

1–4 June 2004, Seoul, Korea

The 8th World Conference on Biodegradable Polymers and Plastics (BDPP 8) will be held at Hanyang University in Seoul, Korea from 1–4 June 2004. Topics including environmentally degradable polymeric materials, degradable polymers from renewable resources, natural polymeric materials, and biomedical applications utilizing degradable polymers will be discussed.

The conference is a continuation of the series on biodegradable polymers, which began in 1989 in Toronto as the International Scientific Consensus Workshop on Degradable Materials. In 2002, the 7th World Conference on Biodegradable Polymers and Plastics—held in Tirrenia, Italy, and attended by more than 250 participants—manifested increasing interest from academia, industry, and administrations worldwide in biodegradable polymers and their sustainability. This conference is jointly organized by the Korean Biodegradable Plastics Association, the Biodegradable Plastics Society of Japan, the European Degradable Plastics Society, the BioEnvironmental Polymer Society, the Polymer Society of Korea, and Hanyang University.

Following in the tradition of the preceding meetings, BBDP 8 will provide a forum of exciting discussions for those working in the fields of biodegradable polymers. The technical program of the 8th Conference consists of invited lectures by world experts and contributed oral and poster presentations. The registration fee, including the abstract book, conference proceedings on CD-ROM, lunches and refreshments, and welcoming reception, is available at a reduced rate before 31 March. A discounted registration fee is available for students.

Seoul, the capital of the Republic of Korea, is one of the 10 largest cites in the world. A distinctive characteristic of Seoul is its remarkable blend of the past and present, made possible by an effort to preserve the best aspects of Korea’s unique 5000-year culture. Tours are available for accompanying persons, and accommodation information is available on the conference Web site.
