General Description

The International Symposium on Polymer Analysis and Characterization (ISPAC) is a non-profit scientific organization whose purpose is to provide an international forum for the presentation of recent advances in the field of polymer analysis and characterization methodologies. As such, the meeting needs a good representation of scientists of all ages and stages of their careers in order to bring a good balance of energy and experience to the meeting and to ensure an ample supply of younger talent in the profession.  In view of the cost of attending conferences, it is desirable for ISPAC to establish a Travel Award program to support the attendance of selected graduate students and postdocs to attend the ISPAC.  The Governing Board of ISPAC will offer travel awards to selected graduate students and/or postdocs.  Each recipient will get a free registration plus $500 in travel support




We are pleased to announce the ISPAC 2023 awardees:

Amkelwa Mpelane, Aweda Balogun, Boitumelo Nthwane, Mgxadeni Ncomeka, Siyasanga Sambakanya, Lyndon Naidoo, Sabelo Mthembu, Anname Lourens, Abongile Gada
