With Spring 2014 National Meeting only three weeks away, details on PMSE sessions can be found on the Dallas ACS Meeting page.
Highlighs include a plenary leacture from Joseph DeSimone and sessions covering electrospinning, supramolecular assembly, conjugated polymers, dynamic/responsive polymers, and the rational design of functional polymeric materials. Awards will be presented for the 2014 ACS Applied Polymer Science Award and the 2014 Cooperative Research Award. The 2013 class of PMSE Fellows will speak in a symposia held in their honor.
And as a reminder, the sumbission deadline for the Fall 2014 ACS Meeting, held in San Fransciso, is March 10th for PMSE abstracts.

Congratulations to Dr. David Bauer, the reciepent of the 2013 Division of Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering Distinguished Service Award.
Dr. Bauer is a Managing Scientist in Exponent’s Vehicle Engineering practice, joining Exponent after over 29 years with Ford Motor Company. Dr. Bauer has carried out research in several areas of polymeric materials including paint, plastics, elastomers and fuel cells. His major research focus has been in the areas of paint and plastics failure analysis and service life prediction. Along with developing new approaches to measuring material degradation, Dr. Bauer has taken the results of accelerated tests and used them to accurately determine field performance. Dr. Bauer has made important contributions to the understanding of UV degradation, thermal oxidation, and hydrolysis of polymers. He has published over 115 papers in peer-reviewed journals and made over 150 presentations in a wide range of areas including paint cure, paint rheology, paint weathering, plastics characterization, plastics failure analysis, and tire aging. He has edited two books on service life prediction in coatings. He has won two of the major awards in Coatings Science: the Roy Tess Award in Coatings and the Mattiello Lecture.
