Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the Scientific Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 3rd Milan Polymer Days Congress-MIPOL2019, which will be held on March 11-13, 2019 in Milan, Italy.

MIPOL2019 will be hosted in the Auditorium of the University of Milan (Aula Magna), in the beautiful Renaissance "Ca’ Granda”  within walking distance of the Cathedral Square and many of the cultural highlights of the city.

MIPOL2019 aims to bring together polymer scientists with different background, either from industry or academy, to discuss multidisciplinary aspects of polymer science and technology and to facilitate development of scientific networks. Young scientists are most welcome to participate in the congress and a dedicated best poster competition will reinforce their enthusiasm in polymer science.

MIPOL2019 follows two successful editions held in 2017 and 2108, respectively. The hope and ambition is that this 3rd edition could represent only one of a long series of exciting annual events.
As in previous editions, several renowned Speakers have already accepted our invitations to give lectures. We are confident that the quality of their presentations will contribute to widen the knowledge on polymers of all participants.

The Milan Polymer Days Congresses welcome contributions from all fields of polymer science and technology, including modern polymerization techniques, synthesis of complex polymer architectures, supramolecular polymer chemistry, chiral polymer recognition, functional polymers, nanocomposites, electro- and optico-active polymers, polymeric biomaterials, nanomedicine polymers at interfaces, physical chemistry of polymer surfaces, polymer rheology, polymer processing, mechanical properties and advanced polymer characterizations.

The program will include keynote lectures from renowned scientists, oral scientific communications, young scientist presentations, as well as poster presentations. We look forward to share with you fruitful and stimulating discussions in the cozy atmosphere of our beautiful Renaissance location in the very heart of Milan. Sure that your contribution will allow repeating the success of the previous Milan Polymer Days editions.
