Layered Polymeric Systems - 2017, to be held at the Asilomar Conference Center, CA will focus on the production, structure, proper-ties and applications of layered polymeric systems. Layered struc-tures represent a growing area in the polymer world, and by taking a “systems look” at them, they become even more interesting. For example, the NSF granted a Science & Technology Center (STC) in this area 10 year ago - the ONLY materials STC granted in a number of years (more information is available at http://www.stc-clips.org). Layered systems can be produced using cutting edge extrusion, layer-by-layer, and other methods, and now encompass advanced packaging (food and electronics), devices (medical, lenses, information storage), energy (capacitors), and fire-resistant consumer goods. We are confident that this workshop will be fully subscribed, and will be of interest to participants from the academic, industrial and military sectors.
