On behalf of the Polymer Processing Society (PPS), the Polymer Processing Academy (PPA) and the local organizing committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to the European Regional Meeting of the Polymer Processing Society, PPS-2024, to be held at Ferrol, A Coruña, Spain during 30th September – 3rd October 2024. The objective of the conference is to foster exchange of developments and innovations in Polymer Engineering related areas.
The PPS Meetings are leading conferences in the field of Polymer Science & Engineering and attract internationally renowned scientists, engineers and designers. The goals of the Society, as embodied in its constitution are to foster scientific understanding and technical innovation in polymer processing by providing a discussion forum. The thematic range of the PPS encompasses all formulation, conversion and shaping operations applied to polymeric systems and their transformation to commercial products with attractive properties.
We are indeed privileged that a PPS Conference will be held in Spain for the first time. We expect that the conference will be highly successful in terms of participation and quality of technical presentations. The conference will be located in the Industrial Campus of Ferrol, that is part of the University of A Coruña and it is the first specialisation campus accredited by Xunta de Galicia, our regional goverment, in the entire Spanish University System. As part of the University, the campus purpose is to create, manage and disseminate the culture and the scientific, technological and professional knowledge by teaching, researching and stimulating the knowledge transfer.
The accreditation as Industrial Campus was obtained by the relationship the campus has with local and regional industry from their birth, that allows to orient the research and teaching to focus on the problems that companies have in the fields of materials, industrial robotics, naval and offshore engineering, optimisation of industrial processes, industrial management and product development. This topics are totally aligned with strategic industrial sectors of our región, Galicia and their intelligent specialization strategy and with R&D&I policies at the national and international levels.
The scientific program of PPS 2024 will include plenary lectures, invited keynote talks as well as oral and poster presentations from academia and industry.
Such a conference will be very beneficial to students and their active participation will be encouraged.
We look forward to welcoming National & International delegates who will make a great success of PPS-2024.
