MIPOL2020 now available on line

It was with great regret that on 29th February 2020 we informed you that the in-person MIPOL2020 congress had to be cancelled, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic in Italy. Owing to the containment measures implemented by the Italian government, we do not yet know when large gatherings of people will be allowed.

We are now pleased to announce that the Organizing Committee has planned to release the Virtual MIPOL2020 Congress on 15-17 July 2020, which will include 3 days of live broadcast sessions where you can interact with speakers and sponsors.

Our goal remains to provide a forum where new scientific information relevant to all disciplines of polymer science and technology bring together scientists with different background, both from Academy and Industry. Therefore, we will make all efforts to allow MIPOL2020 attendees to communicate with each other, either by participating in panel discussions or by interacting individually. We shall do our best to ensure the same visibility to all participants as in the in-person congress.

There will also be large room for Young Scientists and the poster award competition dedicated to them will take place as originally planned. To this aim, we have organized a collective poster session involving in the discussion all poster presenters.

In short, we are working to recreate the atmosphere of communication and participation that characterized the previous editions of the MIPOL congress series. Thanks to your active participation we are confident to turn this event into a success.

We will provide all technical information on how to participate in the Virtual MIPOL2020 congress through this page, which will be constantly updated, and by e-mail messages.

We count on your enthusiastic participation!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee
