30 Years of Excellence in Polymer Analysis and Characterization
The International Symposium on Polymer Analysis and Characterization, ISPAC, is a non-profit scientific organization. The mission of ISPAC is to provide an international forum for the presentation of cutting-edge technologies in the field of polymer analysis and characterization. The symposium is unique in its emphasis on state-of-the-art methodologies, in its multidisciplinary approach to problems, and in the detailed discussions available among the participants. Over the years, the symposia have successfully brought together analytical chemists, polymers chemists, polymer physicists, chemical engineers, and material scientists involved in the characterization and analysis of synthetic and natural polymeric materials. Meetings are held annually, rotating to venues in the USA, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
The annual three-day symposia comprise invited and contributed lectures, poster sessions, discussions and information exchange on polymer analysis and characterization approaches, techniques and applications. Invited talks include state-of-the-art developments, with each lecture session features lectures and a one-hour open discussion period.
Lecturers are urged to include introductory material in their presentation to bring participants "up to speed", and are allotted the time to accomplish this. The discussion periods allow for extended interaction among the lecturers and the conference participants.
