Fifth International Symposium
Frontiers in Polymer Science

In association with the journal polymer

17-19 May 2017 | Seville, Spain

Join star plenary speakers and international delegates at the Fifth International Symposium Frontiers in Polymer Science.

The 3-day symposium will consist of 15 plenary lectures (of 50 minutes each), given by outstanding scientists whose exceptionally creative work opens up new frontiers for polymer science. In addition, there will be three poster sessions (each consisting of two parts within the same day) allowing for the viewing of a large number of poster presentations. Abstracts for poster presentations covering all aspects of modern polymer science are welcome.

The symposium will start at 14:00 h on Wednesday, 17 May 2016 and finish at around 16:00 h on Friday, 19 May 2017.

We expect around 600 participants from over 50 countries as for the previous four symposia in the series.


The symposium will be held in Seville in southern Spain. With three World Heritage Sites, including one of the largest and most famous churches in the world, you will find many fantastic historical and cultural sights to explore during your time in Seville.
