POLYCHAR World Forum on Advanced Materials will
be held 17–22 April 2006 in Nara, Japan. Previous conferences
in this series have attracted attendees from approximately
POLYCHAR 14 will encompass the many research fields of polymer science. The main topic areas include 1) predictive method; 2) synthesis; 3) nanomaterials and smart materials; 4) mechanical properties and performance; 5) dielectric and electrical properties; 6) surface, interface, and tribology; 7) rheology, solutions and processing; 8) biomaterials and tissue engineering; 9) natural and biodegradable materials and recycling; and 10) characterization and structure-property relationships.
POLYCHAR-14 will feature both oral and poster presentations. The presentation papers will be published in POLYMER after standard reviews. Prizes for young scientists and students will be awarded for outstanding poster presentations.
On 18 April, a special symposium will be held to discuss the future development of women researchers in the polymer science field as well as those in the various science fields. Some well-known female professors and young female scientists will be invited as panelists. In addition, a short course will be held on 16 April for students and young researchers who want to investigate polymer science.
