The 2017, Brightlands Rolduc Polymer Conference is organized as continuation of the well-known Rolduc Polymer Meetings. The Rolduc Polymer Meetings were initiated in 1985, aiming to achieve intensive discussions between leading academic researchers and managers and peer researchers from polymer industry. Over the years some 4000 participants from all over the world have attended these bi-annual international meetings, among them 5 Nobel Prize winners. Industry participation was always over 30%.
Some Meeting Themes that have been discussed in these 30 years are:
To stimulate free discussion at the conference, participants were not obliged to submit a paper, but only an abstract of their presentation. However, we invited authors to submit their paper to e.g. European Polymer Journal or to e-Polymers, with reference to Rolduc Polymer Meeting.
Rolduc Polymer Meetings were always organized under auspices of the European Polymer Federation.
