6th International Conference on Biobased and Biodegradable Polymers (BIOPOL-2017)

11/09/2017 a 13/09/2017 Bélgica, Mons European Centre for Nanostructured Polymers

On behalf of the organizing committee of BIOPOL-2017, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 6th International Conference on Biobased and Biodegradable Polymers (BIOPOL-2017), which will be held from September 11th to 13th, 2017 in the beautiful city of Mons (Belgium).

The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for scientists from both academia and industry (researchers, students and company professionals from all over the world) to exchange up-to-date ideas on current research and new applications of biobased and/or biodegradable polymer materials. The conference program will feature lectures by expert invited speakers (http://www.biopol-conf.org/lectures.php). We encourage participants to present their current research work as oral communications or posters in one of the topics of the program.
