MIPOL2024 Congress News

8th Edition of the Milan Polymer Days International Congress

Summertime - Milan: join us in the annual event on innovation in polymer science and technology!

Welcome to MIPOL2024

Welcome to the homepage of the 8th Milan Polymer Days International Congress. MIPOL2024 will be held from 5th to 7 th June 2024 at the Auditorium of the University of Milan, in the very heart of Milan. As in previous congress editions, for a few days, the Milan Polymer Days Congress will bring together internationally renowned scientists from the most diverse backgrounds, both academic and industrial, and create a forum that allows them to communicate scientific innovation in all sectors of polymer science and technology.

Scientific highlights

Every congress day will begin with a keynote lecture in which world-renowned experts in their respective fields feature cutting-edge research. Keynotes will be followed by state-of-the-art lectures given by distinguished scientists, most upon invitation, on selected topics. In this congress edition, we are receiving interesting abstracts dealing with bioactive polymers, polymeric nanocomposites, conducting polymers, biorefinery, sustainable polymers, polymeric flame retardants, polymer processing, mechanical and thermal characterization of polymers, synthesis of complex macromolecular architectures, eco-compatibility of polymers.

What about poster communications?

The poster sessions will take place during lunchtime on the 1st and 2nd congress days - June 5th and 6th. Young Scientists are eligible to participate in the Best Poster Award competition dedicated to them. We encourage our young collaborators not to miss this opportunity.

What's new this year: the MIPOL YOUNG symposium

On the 2nd congress day - June 6th -, a large room will be given to our younger colleagues. A rich afternoon program has been designed to satisfy the requests of participation of Young Scientists, who are just starting their career. Two full sessions dedicated to short oral communications by Young Scientists will give them a unique opportunity to interact with an international audience. Networking activities will be encouraged, and information will be disseminated on scholarships and training programs, internships, and much more. The best oral communication by Young Scientists will be awarded with a special prize.

Awards and prizes

To enhance the activity of our younger colleagues and boost their careers, we have organized a rich program of recognition and prizes dedicated to them, including:

  • The Best Poster Award competition is open to Young Scientists who submit their application.
  • The Best Oral Presentation Award is dedicated to participants of the MIPOL Young symposium.
  • The winner of the 3rd edition of the Mario Malinconico Prize for the best master's degree thesis in polymer science will be celebrated.
  • The winners of these three awards will be announced and celebrated after the end of the oral sessions.
