Advanced Polymers for Emerging Technologies

Abstract:
The 10 subsessions (Polymers for Electronics and Photonics, Smart Polymers for Sensors and Intelligent Systems, Biomedical Polymers, Polymers for Energy Conversion and Storage, Polymer Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology, Polymer Syntheses and Reactions, Polymer Physics, Properties, and Characterization, Environmental and Green Polymers, Polymer Engineering and Processing, Industrial Polymers) encompassed the research areas of Advanced Polymers for Emerging Technologies and Contemporary Polymer Science and Technology, both of which dealt very much with futuristic subjects. A real contrast in audience participation was observed between the two types of sessions: Practically all of the first five sessions were packed with participants, whereas the second half attracted a much smaller audience. This strongly implied that, at least among Korean polymer scientists, polymer science is heading toward the development of high functional materials linked to advanced technologies in electronics, photonics, energy, and bio- and nanotechnologies.
