28–31 May 2024 Polymers 2024 – Polymers for a Safe and Sustainable Future

Athens, Greece

We are very proud and honored to announce the international conference “Polymers 2024—Polymers for a Safe and Sustainable Future”, organized in collaboration with the MDPI open access journal Polymers, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and BIOMAC project, and Exelisis Co. The conference will be held in Athens, Greece, on May 28–31, 2024.

Polymers 2024 is an international conference that will explore the latest advances in polymer science to produce safe and sustainable materials, with unique properties for human health and environmental sustainability. The conference will also discuss clean, green, and efficient production processes, life cycle assessments, exposure, risk assessment, decontamination and environmental remediation, and novel techniques for polymer recycling and reuse. Polymers 2024 is a unique opportunity for polymer scientists from around the world to present their work and innovations in polymer chemistry and technology under the view of sustainable development.

The conference follows the previous successful meetings Polymers 2018—Polymers: Design, Function and Application held in March 2018, Barcelona, Spain and Polymers 2022: New Trends in Polymer Science: Health of the Planet, Health of the People held in May 2022 in Turin, Italy.

We welcome abstracts for posters or short talks related to the conference theme, which will be considered for presentation at the conference. Meeting participants will have the opportunity to present their work and discuss their research in a stimulating environment.

1–5 July 2024 Mechanics of Active Soft Materials: Experiments, Theory, Numerics, and Applications

Como, Italy

Active soft materials are a class of smart materials whose physical properties can be controlled by external stimuli such as temperature, pH, light, electric, or magnetic fields. Several active soft materials and their respective stimuli are at the forefront of materials science research today.

Thanks to their unique properties, active soft materials can be applied in numerous fields, from soft robotics to medicine and pharmacology. Their potential in these fields is further promoted by the continuous advancements in additive manufacturing technologies, which ensure freeform production of customized parts using active materials, improving the so-called 4D printing.

To further accelerate these materials and related technologies towards widespread adoption, a thorough understanding and prediction of their complex behavior is of utmost importance. This will allow us not only to accelerate the design of new types of materials, but also to optimize their behavior depending on application needs. In this framework, cross-disciplinary expertise should be tackled, hence the emerging need for a new generation of scientists capable of combining fundamental concepts from different disciplines.

The proposed school aims at creating a bridge between mechanics, chemistry, and physics to educate future scientists in the novel and fast-growing scientific framework of active soft matter. Particularly, lectures will introduce the participants to fundamental notions of solid, computational, and experimental mechanics for these materials, also tackling recent and underdeveloped aspects related to the use of artificial intelligence and to fracture issues. The participants will then be introduced to the most used representative classes of materials and to numerous innovative application fields.
