This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
This meeting will focus on Polymer Physics and how it relates to and enables solutions to the most pressing societal problems of this time. Thus understanding the fundamentals of charged systems, nanocomposites, cross linked materials and block copolymers and their flow response will allow us to address pressing questions in gas and ion separations and water purification, in the creation of sustainable polymer technologies and towards understanding the origins of life.
