Macro- and Supra-Molecular Architectures and Materials
7–11 September 2008, Düsseldorf, Germany
Novel and functional polymer materials will play a key role in science and technology in the 21st century. As functional properties of polymers, which are crucial for controlled molecular architectures and systems, depend on a wide variety of parameters, a discussion of the actual knowledge and state-of-the-art approaches is very important.
The 4th International Symposium on Macro- and Supramolecular Architectures and Materials (MAM-08) will be held in Düsseldorf, Germany, from 7–11 September 2008. The objective of the symposium is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for scientists engaged in the full spectrum of research, development, and application. Furthermore, the current status and recent developments of new polymer materials and their applications will be discussed, particularly with respect to their macro- and supramolecularity. The meeting will provide an opportunity to overview the field by covering a wide range of topics. Themes have been selected to cover the whole area of research to facilitate interdisciplinary interactions in academic fields and industrial technology. The impact of the meeting is indicated by the number of prominent speakers from industry.
The symposium will bring together scientists from all over the world to present scientific and technological findings related to the areas of polymer chemistry (macromolecular) and extended molecular networks (supramolecular). By gathering engineers, material scientists, and inorganic, organic, and physical chemists, this event will offer a diversified view on these fascinating and versatile issues of science.
