On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to cordially invite you to attend the 13th UNESCO/IUPAC Workshop and Conference on Macromolecules & Materials.

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

In 2015, the focus of the conference will be on biologically active polymer systems (synthesis, properties and application) and polymer characterization. In the latter case, special focus will be on the characterization of biopolymers, biologically polymers and systems.
As the conference will be held in the heartland of the Southern African tyre manufacturing industry, a special session on rubber technology, chemistry, recycling and devulcanization will also be included. As always, there will be a theme of generaly topics.

The famous Addo Elephant National Park is 75 km from the Boardwalk International Convention Centre in Port Elizabeth. Come and enjoy the wildlife of South Africa after some top lectures on polymer science and experience the South African way of life.
