The aim of the Microsymposium is to bring together experts working in all areas of controlled polymer synthesis regardless of the nature of the chain carrier. The topics include recent methods of polymer tailoring and polymer functionalization. The meeting will provide a stimulating atmosphere for critical and new research initiatives.
1. Tailoring of polymers by ionic living systems
2. Controlled free-radical polymerization
3. Synthesis of functionalized polymers by inititation and termination methods and by chemical modifications of polymers
4. Characterization and application of functionalized polymers
The main lectures (see p. 6) and special lectures (see p. 7) will form the backbone of the programme. The presentation time for each main lecture is 40 min, an additional 10 min is reserved for discussion. The presentation time for each special lecture is 20 min, an additional 5 min is reserved for discussion.
Two poster sessions will be arranged for presentation of an unlimited number of poster communications. Posters are to be mounted half a day preceding the corresponding poster session in order to be freely accessible to participants for preliminary inspection (see p. 9).
All sessions will be held in the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Praha 6 - Petřiny, Heyrovského nám. 2. The opening ceremony and opening lecture will take place on Monday, 12 July, in the morning.
English is the working language of the Meeting; no translation will be provided. All materials for publication should be submitted in English.
Projection of 5 x 5 cm slides, overhead projection, and blackboard will be available for lectures and discussions; the slide projector will not function with slides thicker than 2.5 mm. Boards for mounting posters as well as pushpins and felt-tip pens will be available in the poster area.

Contributions covering unpublished results related to the programme topics can be presented as posters. The number of poster communications is not limited but every poster communication is to be registered for presentation on the Registration Form; the registered poster communication is accepted if the author's participation fee has been remitted.
The poster should present the subject of the work, the technique used, the results, and the ideas to be discussed. Posters are to be mounted half a day preceding the corresponding poster session in order to be freely accessible to the participants for preliminary inspection.
Boards for mounting poster materials are 120 cm high and 150 cm wide. On the top of the board, there will be a label (20 x 30 cm) indicating the programme number of your contribution identical with that of its summary in the Programme Booklet. Please introduce your poster by the title and author's (authors') name(s) on a 20 x 120 cm strip of paper, and write the text on this strip with lettering sufficiently high so that it may be legible from a two-metre distance.
