With a great pleasure we would like to invite you to Poland for the next POLYCHAR meeting in 2016. The 24th Annual World Forum on Advanced Materials will take place from Monday, May 9, until Friday, May 13 at the Poznan University of Technology.
The conference to set its mark in all parts of the work in order so that students and scientists from all parts of the world have a chance to participate at least occasionally. The conferences POLYCHAR 1 up to POLYCHAR 11 were held in the USA, POLYCHAR 12 in Portugal, POLYCHAR 13 in Singapore, POLYCHAR 14 in Japan, POLYCHAR 15 in Brazil, POLYCHAR 16 in India, POLYCHAR 17 in France, POLYCHAR 18 in Germany, POLYCHAR 19 in Nepal, POLYCHAR 20 in Croatia, POLYCHAR 21 in South Korea, POLYCHAR 22 as a gateway Africa, and POLYCHAR 23 in USA. POLYCHAR 24 is now taking place in Poland to attract students and young scientists from Europe, in particular neighboring countries, but also from all over the world.
This 24th Annual Forum on Advanced Materials will bring together professors, PhD students, students and people from industry involved in theory, experiment and computer simulations under one roof to achieve systemic understanding of connections between structures, interactions, processing and properties in polymer materials science. This is a long-term activity, not aimed at temporary fashions. From the very beginning one of the important aims of the conference is to give young scientists a forum to present their results and to meet with distinguished scientists from all over the world.
You might like to know that Poznan was historically a very important city in the context of establishing of Polish state at the end of 10th century. Poznan has a significant number of direct airplane connections. It is also a city easy to reach from Berlin (280 km motorway or train) or else from Warsaw (300 km motorway or train). More specific information on getting to Poznan are included in the web site. There are hotels and dormitories at various prices close to the Technical University campus. We hope to meet you all in Poznan!
