Polymers and composite materials represent key areas of growth for energy, health care, and transportation. Because of their light weight, ease of processing, chemical stability, durability, and ability to tailor their mechanical properties, they have significant applications in aerospace, defense, and construction and infrastructure industries. Specific examples of these include coatings, displays, solid state lighting, turbines, prosthetics, packaging, and sports.
The 2014 Global Conference on Polymer and Composite Materials (PCM 2014) was held during May 27-29 in Ningbo, China. More than 150 distinguished scholars and engineers from United States, England, Western Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan and China attended the conference, their fruitful academic achievements exchange and their unanimous praise after the conference proved PCM2014 a complete successes.
The 2015 Global Conference on Polymers and Composite Materials was held in Beijing, China, from May 16th to May 19th 2015. The meeting covered a wide range of topics in the field of polymer and composite materials. The Conference Program included 9 keynote presentations, 36 oral presentations, and 45 poster presentations. Over 100 scientists, from all over the world, participated in this international conference.
The 2016 Global Conference on Polymer and Composite Materials (PCM 2016) will be held in Hangzhou, China during May 20th - 23rd, 2016.The conference aims to provide a comprehensive global forum for experts and participants from academia to exchange ideas and present results on ongoing research in the most state-of-the-art areas of polymer and composite materials and their research methods and techniques.
Hangzhou is the capital and largest city of Zhejiang Province in Eastern China. It is renowned for its historic relics and natural beauty, ranking as one of the most scenic cities. One of Hangzhou's most popular sights is West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The West Lake Cultural Landscape covers an area of 3,323 ha (8,210 acres) and includes some of Hangzhou's most notable historic and scenic places. Adjacent to the lake is a scenic area which includes historical pagodas, cultural sites, as well as the natural beauty of the lake and hills. There are many famous sayings in China to describe the beauty of Hangzhou, like "Be born in Suzhou, live in Hangzhou, eat in Guangzhou, die in Liuzhou.", and “Heaven Above, Suzhou and Hangzhou below (which compares Hangzhou to "heaven on Earth" or "God's country")”.
We are looking forward to welcoming polymer and composite scholars and scientists from all over the world to Hangzhou to join the unforgettable scientific event and feel the fascinating scenery of this beautiful city.
