INTRODUCTION

This proposed ACS Polymer Division Workshop “Layered Polymeric Systems - 2020” to be held at the Asilomar Conference Center, CA will focus on the production, structure, properties and applications of layered polymeric systems. Layered structures represent a growing area in the polymer world, and by taking a “systems look” at them, they become even more interesting. The NSF granted a Science & Technology Center (STC) in this area 10 year ago - the ONLY materials STC they granted in recent years. More information is available at http://www.stc-clips.org. These systems now encompass advanced packaging (food and electronics), devices (lenses, information storage), energy (capacitors) and medical devices. We are confident that such a workshop will be fully subscribed, and will bring some new faces to the table from the industrial sector and the military.
