Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,
It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 2nd Milan Polymer Days Congress, MIPOL2018, which will take place on February 14-16, 2018 in Milan, Italy.

The purpose of the conference is to bring together polymer scientists with different background, either from industry or academy, to discuss the challenges and the interplay of multidisciplinary aspects of polymer science and technology. The meeting will enable the exchange of ideas and knowledge between the different disciplines of polymer science for facilitating research and interdisciplinary collaborations. Young scientists are most welcome to participate in the congress and ample room will be given to their contributions.

MIPOL2018 will take place in the University of Milan Auditorium (Aula Magna), in the center of Milan within walking distance of the Cathedral Square and many of the cultural highlights of the city. 
The conference will cover all areas of polymer science and technology, including modern polymerization methodologies, living free radical polymerization, complex polymer architectures, supramolecular polymer chemistry, functional polymers, nanocomposites, traditional composites, electro- and optico-active polymers, polymeric biomaterials, polymers in nanomedicine, polymers at interfaces, polymer rheology, polymer processing, mechanical properties and polymer characterization.

The program will span from keynote lectures of famous scientists, oral scientific communications, young scientist presentations, as well as poster presentations in dedicated poster sessions.
We look forward to welcoming you to MIPOL2018 – the 2nd Milan Polymer Days Congress to Milan, hoping to repeat the success of the first edition of the congress.
