Macro2010: 43rd IUPAC World Polymer Congress

11 - 16 July 2010
Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC), Glasgow, UK 


The 43rd IUPAC World Polymer Congress, 'Macro2010', is the latest in the series of the biennial meetings of the IUPAC Polymer Division. The series has been running for several decades and is the largest international multi-symposium conference dedicated to all aspects of polymer science and engineering.
Macro2010 is organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and hosted by the Pure and Applied Macromolecular Chemistry Group (Macro Group UK), a joint interest group of the RSC and the Society of Chemical Industry (SCI).


Macro2010 will have an overall focus on Polymer Science in the Service
of Society
Preliminary topic themes include:

  • Delivering New Polymers for Service in Society: Advances in Polymer Chemistry
  • Molecular to Macroscopic Behaviour of Polymers
  • Sustainability: Renewable Resources and Environmentally-Friendly Polymers
  • Polymers in Support of Life
  • Functional Polymers for Electronics, Energy and Analysis
  • Polymer Science in Everyday Life
  • Advances in Colloidal and Nanosize Polymer Materials
  • Young Polymer Scientists: Contributions, Nurturing and Networking

Scientific Programme and call for papers

A more detailed scientific introduction will be posted here later in 2008. A call for papers will open during 2009, inviting abstracts for oral and poster presentation in a range of parallel sessions. 

Sponsorship and exhibition

We expect that 'Macro2010' will attract around 1800 international delegates, so this will be the perfect opportunity to promote your organisation. A selection of sponsorship and exhibition options will be available to see on this website later in 2008. Alternatively, contact us for information when it becomes available.
