International Workshop
on Macromolecular Materials

23-26 June 2020 – SAN SEBASTIAN, SPAIN

POLYMAT and the University of the Basque Country have initiated a series of workshops, in the framework of the FET-OPEN project 2D-INK, entitled POLYMAT SPOTLIGHT.

We cordially invite you to attend the next POLYMAT SPOTLIGHT, which will be held in San Sebastian (Spain), on June 21 (Tue) – June 24 (Fri), 2016.

POLYMAT and the University of the Basque Country initiated in 2016 a series of international workshops entitled POLYMAT Spotlight.

This workshop series aims at exploring and increasing the visibility of emerging and technologically-relevant macromolecular materials.

We cordially invite you to attend the third edition of POLYMAT Spotlight, which will be held in San Sebastian (Spain), on June 23 (Tue) – June 26 (Fri), 2020.

POLYMAT Spotlight 2020 will be devoted to Self-Assembly at Different Length Scales.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Deadline for abstract submission: March 31, 2018

The Scientific Program Committee invites all interested participants to contribute abstracts of scientific communications that will be peer-reviewed for their acceptance as either oral or poster presentations.

The oral presentations are scheduled for 15 minutes including discussions and will be allocated in between two keynote lectures.

Flash presentations are scheduled for 3 minutes and will be allocated just before the poster session.

Three prizes will be awarded: one prize to the best flash presentation and two prizes to the best posters.

Participants wishing to present an oral or poster presentation should submit an abstract, following the instructions below:

  1. Download here the template
  2. Prepare the abstract using the template
  3. Send your abstract as a DOC file to spotlight@polymat.eu

Authors will be notified about the type of presentation by April 15, 2018.
