Welcome to PCM 2020!

Note: Due to the 2019-nCov epidemic, PCM2020 has been changed from July 12-15, 2020 to November 1-4, 2020. Please arrange your travel properly.

The 7th Global Conference on Polymer and Composite Materials (PCM 2020) will be held from November 1-4, 2020 in the city of Xi’an, China.

PCM conference aims to provide a forum for academic experts and participants to exchange their experiences and share research results about all aspects of Polymer and Composite Materials and discuss the encountered practical challenges and the adopted solutions.

Xi'an is the cradle of Chinese civilization and the center of prehistory culture. As it's the capital of 13 ancient dynasties in China, which could date back to 1200 years ago, and the starting point of the Silk Road, Xi'an is blessed with numerous marvelous historical and cultural relics. It is home to the Terracotta Army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang and honored as the World Historic City by the UNESCO in 1981.
