Conference Description

The Macromolecular Materials GRC (formerly "Polymers West") is a long-standing meeting that covers forefront advances in all areas of polymer science. Unlike other polymer-related GRCs which have a more narrow focus, Macromolecular Materials covers synthesis, polymer physics, processing, and applications.

While the majority of the presentations are devoted to experimental studies, historically theory, modeling, and simulation have also been well represented. Recently, as the polymer science moves closer to biology, there has been an increasing number of biopolymer/biomaterials related talks. At the Macromolecular Materials GRC, the focus in assembling the program is always on the "hottest and freshest" work emerging in the fields of polymer synthesis, polymer physics, polymer engineering and processing, as well as in biomaterials and nanotechnology.

Note: Between the years of 1963 and 2007, the "Polymers" GRC split into a West Coast series and an East Coast/European series, meeting twice yearly. In 2009, the name of the West conference changed to "Macromolecular Materials" and the East conference changed to "Polymers".

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Macromolecular Materials" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
