6th Brazilian Polymer Conference/ 9th International
Macromolecular Colloquium, 11-15 November 2001, Gramado, Brazil
> Back to Calendar
This conference will feature approximately 500 lectures and posters
covering diverse academic and technological areas in the polymer field.
The program is expected to appeal to academic and industrial researchers;
engineers and technicians involved in research, product development,
quality control, technical assistance, and industrial production; plastics
and rubber consultants; and government scientists and technologists
responsible for planning and industrial development. About 500 scientific
participants from Brazil, other countries of South America, Europe,
and the United States are expected to attend.
Simultaneous subsections of the meeting will focus on adhesives, additives,
biopolymers, alloys and polymer blends, characterization/instrumentation,
fillers and reinforcing fibers, composites, reinforcement loads and
fibers, product design and development, marketing, elastomers, structure
and properties, gels and membranes, polymerization methods, polymer
processing, recycling, and synthesis.
In conjunction with the conference, a workshop will be held covering
themes of industrial interest such as plastics technology; rubber and
adhesives; recycling of plastics and rubbers; biodegradable polymers;
generation and transfer of technology, including successful models in
Brazil and abroad; and resources, strategies, and partnerships for fostering
official support and private investment in technology.
