PROGRAMME

SCOPE

Technological advances in many scientific fields lead to investigation, understanding and exploitation of structures of continually smaller dimensions. Due to a large variety of building blocks, chemical reactions and architectures, polymers represent a particularly rich field where self-organization can be exploited to obtain materials with new properties. The scope of this meeting is to bring together scientists working in the field of synthetic polymers and biopolymers and interested in self-organization.

TOPICS

SESSIONS

All sessions will be held in the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Praha 6, Heyrovského nám. 2.

The scientific programme consists of invited main lectures of 40 min and additional 10 min for discussion, special lectures of 20 min and additional 5 min for discussion, and two poster sessions.

LANGUAGE

English is the working language of the Microsymposium; no translation will be provided. All materials for publication must be submitted in English.

PRESENTATION FACILITIES

Data-Video-Projector (XGA) connected to a local PC will be available. Following media can be used for transfer of data: FDD 3.5", CD, DVD, USB-Flash. Other supported inputs are via: PCMCIA, IEEE 1394 ports, 4-in-1 Card Reader-Multimedia Card, Secure Digital, Smart Media, or from VHS. No connection of private notebooks or laptops will be allowed. Full functionality of the presentation will be checked by the technical staff in advance.

In addition, an overhead projector will be available.

MAIN LECTURES

The following scientists have already agreed to present main lectures:

SPECIAL LECTURES

The following special lectures have been accepted:

POSTER COMMUNICATIONS

The number of poster communications is limited (2 posters per registered participant). Every poster communication must be registered for presentation using the Registration Form; the registered poster communication is automatically accepted if the author's participation fee has been remitted before deadline.

The area for each poster is 110 cm high and 110 cm wide. The material for mounting posters will be provided.

PUBLICATION OF ABSTRACTS

Abstracts of main and special lectures and all registered poster communications will be published in the Programme Booklet provided their camera-ready texts have reached the P.M.M. Secretariat by 15 April 2006. We accept abstracts either on diskettes or CD, arrived by e-mail, or uploaded through the Microsymposium website. File formats: RTF or Microsoft Word are most suitable, PDF files or GIF pictures with resolution 600 dpi will also be accepted.

It is useful to use file names derived from the name of the participant (if you register using the WWW form and upload your abstract, the file is renamed automatically).

The P.M.M. Secretariat will confirm the receipt of the abstracts of all registered participants. Abstracts of unregistered participants will be neither confirmed nor published or returned.

Abstracts, except for their headings, will be printed without editing.

The Programme Booklet will be available at the Registration Desk.

Preparation of abstracts

Abstracts should not exceed one page of the A4 size. Abstracts will be printed in the A5 size, therefore the usie of smaller font sizes than in the template should be avoided.

A sample of an abstract is available at https://www.imc.cas.cz/sympo/ginfo/abstract.rtf in RTF format.

Abstracts with the format not corresponding to that of the sample will not be accepted.

PUBLICATION OF PAPERS

Full text of papers based on main lectures and special lectures will be published in a special Symposium issue of the International Journal of Polymer Analysis and Characterization (IJPAC). The contributions intended for publication in IJPAC will be accepted exclusively as electronic files (e.g. on floppy disk or CD) during the Microsymposium or sent by e-mail to the Guest Editor, Petr Štěpánek (stepan@imc.as.cz) or to the Editor-in-Chief of the IJPAC, Josef Janča (jjanca@univ-lr.fr). The contributions will be peer-reviewed and published as soon as possible before the end of 2006. The Instructions for Authors can be found in a recent issue of IJPAC, on web site www.taylorandfrancis.com , or obtained from the Editor-in-Chief on request.

Contributions should not exceed 15 pages double-spaced using font Times Roman 12pt, including figures, tables, and references.

The final deadline for manuscript submission (to be considered for this symposium issue) is the end of the Microsymposium.
