Goals, scope

 

The Organizing Committee intends to provide the scientific community and industry the opportunity to present their latest results for discussion at a worldwide forum, to create a friendly atmosphere for socializing and strengthening personal ties, and to offer young scientists an opportunity to present their work and interact with the community. Scientific and technological presentations and discussions will focus on topics within the extended scope of the new meeting including stimuli responsive nanostructured systems, biomaterials for life science application, the theory and practice of bio-based raw materials, polymers and reinforcements, their blends and composites and other issues of the production and use of such materials in the following areas:

  • Stimuli-responsive nanostructured systems: colloids and nano-sized assemblies, microparticles, capsules, polymer networks, hybrid gels and biological interfaces: thin films, polymer brushes and membranes
  • Biomaterials for life science applications: controlled and targeted delivery of drugs, proteins and genes; scaffold fabrication and biomimetic materials in tissue engineering; bioinspired systems for regenerative medicine
  • Biopolymers and their blends: bio-based and biodegradable polymers (PLA, PHAs, bioPE, etc.); synthesis, structure and properties, chemical modification, physical blending
  • Natural polymers and their modification: cellulose and its derivatives, starch, chitin, chitosan, peptides, etc.; modification, functionalization and plasticization
  • Biocomposites: natural fiber reinforcement (wood flour, nanocellulose, all cellulose composites), composites with biopolymer matrices, nanocomposites; surface modification, coupling, deformation and failure mechanism
  • Other raw materials and polymers based on natural resources: triglycerides, lignin, lignin modification, tall oil, flavonoids, liquefaction, natural-based thermosets, bio-based PU and polyesters
  • Biodegradation, composting, environmental issues: biodeterioration, biodegradation and composting, enzymatic modification; environmental impact, life cycle analysis and certification
  • Processing and application: development and optimization of processing technologies; application in the automotive and electronic industry, thin films and coatings, packaging, agriculture and horticulture
