    Prague Meetings on Macromolecules
    60th meeting -20th Discussion Conference on Macromolecules

    Scattering methods for the investigation of polymers

    Prague, Czech Republic: 9-12 JULY 2001

    Scope

    Knowledge of the structure of polymeric systems is a prerequisite for understanding their properties and functions. The conference is addressed to scientists interested in assessing the present state and trends in characterization of polymer structure and dynamics using scattering methods. The meeting aims to cover various aspects of light, X-ray and neutron scattering as technique providing complementary information on structure. Attention will also be devoted to the investigation of processes proceeding in macromolecular materials based on time-resolved experiments.

    Topics

    1. Solid polymer systems
    2. Structure and dynamics of particles in solutions
    3. Networks and gels
    4. Processes in polymeric systems
    5. Methods

    Main lectures

    The following experts have accepted the invitation to present main lectures:

    Special lectures

    About twenty special lectures (20 minutes each, additional 5 minutes for discussion) are to be presented at the Conference.

    If you wish to present a special lecture, please submit a brief summary, along with the preliminary registration card, to the P.M.M. Secretariat not later than by 15th October 2000. In November 2000, the Conference Programme Committee will inform the authors whether their lectures have been accepted. Special lectures not accepted may be presented as poster communications.

    Poster communications

    Two poster sessions are planned (75-100 minutes each). The number of posters is not limited. Detailed information on the format of posters will be given in the Second Circular.

    Panel Discussions

    Two plenary discussions will be organized.

    Publication

    Summaries of main lectures, special lectures, and poster communications will appear in the Programme Booklet. Full texts of main and special lectures will be published in a special volume of Macromolecular Symposia.
