On behalf of the IUPAC, we are looking forward to welcoming you to MACRO2018 in Cairns.
We have compiled an exciting program covering all areas of polymer science and engineering, including synthesis, characterisation, processing, modeling and materials. A large number of sessions will also cover topics at the interface between polymer science and other disciplines that address a range of important issues faced by our modern society, for instance in medicine, energy and the environment. Such a varied programme shows how multidisciplinary polymer science has become and how collaborations across fields are the best approach to tackle today’s challenges.
Over the years, the MACRO conference has developed a strong reputation for bringing together the latest polymer research from top international polymer scientists. In 2018, we will again welcome a number of leading Plenary and Keynote Speakers from around the world and also a very large number of contributors to what promises to be another exciting forum. We would like to extend a particular welcome to early career researchers and in particular students and postdocs, who are key to the future development of our discipline.
The reputation of MACRO events goes further than great science; they are also famous for their warm and convivial atmosphere. In 2018, we will have a busy social schedule, starting with a welcome reception and extending to a number of special events throughout the conference that will highlight Australian heritage and the region of Cairns, including of course the Great Barrier Reef, to the conference banquet.
We look forward to welcoming you to Cairns in 2018.
