Stellenbosch, South Africa

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to cordially invite you to attend the 12th Annual UNESCO/IUPAC Workshop (24 March 2013) and Conference (25 - 28 March 2013) on Macromolecules & Materials focusing on nano- and biomaterials (synthesis, properties and application), polymer characterization (special focus on characterization of nanomaterials and nanocomposites), polyolefins (characterization and structure-property relationships) and general topics.

The conference will be held at the Wallenberg Research Centre @ STIAS (Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Studies) in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
The conference venue is within walking distance from the Department of Chemistry and Polymer Science at the University of Stellenbosch, as well as most of the guest houses and the Stellenbosch city centre.

As part of the conference an International UNESCO/IUPAC Workshop will be held for students and young scientists.

Stellenbosch is situated about 50 km from Cape Town (which has an international airport) and is in the heart of the Cape Winelands. In addition to enjoying an excellent conference programme participants can tour the Stellenbosch Wine Route with 106 cellars belonging to the Stellenbosch Wine of Origin area. Come and enjoy a nice sundowner after some top lectures on polymer science and experience the South African way of life.
