Dear, Colleagues:

We would like to invite you to participate in the next upcoming edition of the 4th US-Mexico Symposium on Advances in Polymer Science MACROMEX2017, which will be held in Los Cabos, México (December 3rd -7th, 2017).

As in the previous meetings, the purpose is to provide a platform for professionals and students to exchange state-of-the-art research and development and identify research needs and opportunities in emerging fields of Polymer Science and Engineering; furthermore it is aimed to increasing the cooperation and scientific interaction among researchers of US and Mexico.

Since the first meeting held in 2008, the participation of a group of distinguished Canadian scientists had contributed significantly to the quality of the meeting. In this new edition, the meeting will be jointly organized by the Mexican Polymer Society (Sociedad Polimérica de México, SPM), the POLY division of the American Chemical Society, ACS and the Chemical Institute of Canada.

The chairs of MACROMEX2017 are Prof. Angel Licea-Claverie from the Tech Institute of Tijuana (Mexico); Prof. Rigoberto Advíncula from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH (USA) and Prof. Michael Cunningham from Queen's University in Kingston ON (Canadá).

The important dates for participation are:
- March, 4th – begin of registrations and submissions.
- ABSTRACT DEADLINE EXTENDED TO July 31 (previously May 30th)– last day for submissions (Abstract submission deadline).
- August 15th (previously July 30) – decision on submissions acceptance (Notification letters).

The Meeting will include invited and contributed talks in the following topics:
- Advances in Macromolecular Synthesis
- Reactions on Polymers: Crosslinking, functionalization, grafting
- Macromolecules and Nanotechnology
- Polymers for Biomedical Applications
- Polymers for Advanced Technologies: Optoelectronics, Membranes, Energy
- Composites and blends
- Polymer Engineering and Modeling
- Smart polymers and Surfaces

A Round Table on Innovation, Intellectual Property and Patents is also included in the program We look forward to receiving your contributions and to hosting you in Los Cabos.

Soon, we will have more detailed information of this event and it will be posted in the official website at:
