Welcome from the Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to participate in the 2nd International Online Conference on Polymers Science—Polymers and Nanotechnology for Industry 4.0 (IOCPS 2021), sponsored by the MDPI open access journal Polymers (ISSN 2073-4360; IF: 3.426). The meeting is an opportunity for researchers in the field of science of materials science and technology to present their research and exchange ideas with colleagues. This is an electronic conference, removing the need to travel and eliminating participation expenses while still maintaining a rigorous selection of scientific contributions and, at the same time, ensuring the possibility for visibility for your own research.

The conference will be organized around the following general topics, providing a forum for presenting and discussing new results. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  1. Smart polymeric Synthesis and Modification for Industry 4.0
  2. Polymer Development for Additive Manufacturing
  3. Advanced Functional Testing of Polymeric Materials
  4. Nanotechnologies in Polymer Science
  5. Biotechnologies and Functional Biopolymers
  6. Applications Polymers in the Industry 4.0
  7. Polymer Recycling

This will be a virtual conference held at Sciforum, a platform developed and sponsored by MDPI to organize and provide technical support for electronic conferences, from 1 to 15 November 2021.

A number of free live-streaming sessions will be held during the conference including talks from invited speakers. These live sessions will also contain a Q&A section to answer questions from a live online audience.

Accepted abstracts and accepted conference papers will be published in Materials Proceedings. Please check the section ‘Instructions for Authors’ for a detailed description on how to submit your contribution to the conference.

All conference participants will be encouraged to submit a full manuscript to the Polymers conference Special Issue, with a 20% discount on the article processing charge. Conference Papers submitted to the Special Issue must have been extended at least by 50%, and will undergo the standard peer-review process of the journal.

The best conference paper and presentation will receive an award of 300 CHF, as well as an offer to publish an extended paper, free of charge, in the Special Issue of Polymers.

We look forward to engaging in exciting discussions and hearing new ideas and perspectives from experts in the field. All participants are welcome to join the online conference.

Kind regards,
