CALL FOR PAPERS: Memorial Symposium in Honor of Les Sperling

Posted on February 5, 2017 at 11:10 AM

 

Memorial Symposium in Honor of Les Sperling
ACS Fall 2017 National Meeting
Washington, DC, August 20-24, 2017

Call For Papers

Dr. Leslie Howard Sperling was internationally known for his work with polymer materials and mentored many students and post-docs during his tenure at Lehigh University. He was a prolific author, with over 250 publications, 7 patents, and 15 books. The books include both edited works based on PMSE and POLY symposia and authored books, such as his widely used textbook Introduction to Physical Polymer Science. He was a Fellow of the American Chemical Society, as well as a PMSE Fellow and PMSE Distinguished Service Award Winner. It is with sadness we note his passing, but with pride we celebrate his impact on and advancement of people and polymers.

In addition to invited talks honoring his contributions to polymer science, technical papers are solicited on interpenetrating polymer networks (IPNs) and polymer blends. Other topics of interest include the mechanical and morphological aspects of polymers, especially failure mechanisms and sound and vibrational damping.


Abstracts and Preprints Due: On-line submission by April 7, 2017

250th ACS National Meeting Abstract Submission Extended to March 25th

Posted on March 9, 2015 at 6:45 PM

The Call for Papers for the Fall 2015 ACS national meeting has been extended to March 25th, 2015. The 250th ACS National Meeting & Exposition will be held August 16 - 20, 2015 in Boston, MA.  A list of PMSE symposia can be found both on the abstract submission site https://maps.acs.org" target="_blank">(MAPS) and at the Boston 2015 page. The Boston 2015 page has more detailed descriptions of PMSE-sponsored symposia.

 

PMSE symposia submissions do not require preprints, but are optional for presenters.

 

2015 Spring ACS Meeting Call for Papers Closes on October 20th

Posted on October 19, 2014 at 6:25 PM

Only one day left until abstract submissions close for the 2015 ACS Conference!

Please go to http://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/meetings/spring-2015.html for further information and to submit your abstract.  PMSE preprints are optional, but if you would like to submit a preprint, the template is provided throught tha MAPS submission system.

PMSE is pleased to sponsor 10 open symposia for abstracts or preprints:

  • Advances in X-ray and Neutron Scattering Techniques for Elucidating Polymer Morphology
  • Design Principles of Functional Macromolecular Materials
  • Drug Delivery and Drug Device Combination Products
  • General Papers/New Concepts in Polymeric Materials
  • Graphene and Carbon Nanotubes: Synthesis, Devices and Applications
  • Nanoscale Spectroscopic and Microscopic Characterization
  • Nanostructured Porous Polymers: Synthesis, Properties and Applications
  • Polymer Modeling: Structure, Dynamics and Function
  • Polymeric Biomaterials
  • Stimulus-Responsive Assemblies and Materials

Abstract Submission is Open for the 2015 Spring ACS National Meeting

Posted on August 26, 2014 at 8:20 PM

Abstracts for the 249th ACS National Meeting can now be submitted.  The theme for the Denver meeting “Chemistry of Natural Resources” addresses topics important to life in the 21st Century, but is of particular relevance to the Rocky Mountain region and therefore most appropriate for the Denver meeting. The State of Colorado relies heavily on chemical processing, a topic which is frequently overlooked by traditional chemists. The theme permits opportunities to describe resource management issues: novel technologies for extraction and purification of minerals and other resources from the ground, upcoming challenges associated with water consumption, conservation and reuse, broader conversation about recycling of resources, and identification of alternative materials. The theme represents the full range of scientific issues from nanoscale to mesoscale and extends to largescale length and time domains.

PMSE is pleased to sponsor 10 open symposia for abstracts or preprints:

  • Advances in X-ray and Neutron Scattering Techniques for Elucidating Polymer Morphology
  • Design Principles of Functional Macromolecular Materials
  • Drug Delivery and Drug Device Combination Products
  • General Papers/New Concepts in Polymeric Materials
  • Graphene and Carbon Nanotubes: Synthesis, Devices and Applications
  • Nanoscale Spectroscopic and Microscopic Characterization
  • Nanostructured Porous Polymers: Synthesis, Properties and Applications
  • Polymer Modeling: Structure, Dynamics and Function
  • Polymeric Biomaterials
  • Stimulus-Responsive Assemblies and Materials

PMSE submissions are due by October 20, 2015.  Abstract submissions are currently performed through the new MAPS system, but the ACS login remains the same as in previous sessions.
