The field of macromolecular science will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2020
. Consequently, this event will focus on the celebration of 100 years of polymer science, laying the foundation to deal with present challenges and enabling future solutions. For this purpose, current and future tasks will be discussed and analyzed in detail during the conference. Renowned speakers will discuss past, present and emerging future topics of macromolecular chemistry and physics. A lecture dedicated to Hermann Staudinger and his life will allow the participants to have a look into the early days of polymer science.
