March Meeting Abstracts. Your contributions will add to an exciting program for the Baltimore March meeting.
Hotel Reservation deadline Saturday, February 13.
Anna Balazs (University of Pittsburgh) is cited “For theoretical insight into complex behavior of multi-component polymer systems.”
Thomas Epps (University of Delaware) is cited “For significant advancement in the control, characterization and understanding of polymer nanoscale structure and energetics.”
The Dillon Medal is sponsored by Elsevier, publisher of Polymer.
Many thanks to the nominating committee (chaired by Ken Schweizer and comprising Timothy Lodge, Ali Dhionjwala, Shaw Ling Hsu and Mahesh Mahanthappa) for preparing this slate of candidates.
The election will begin shortly.
Abstract submission for the APS March Meeting 2015 is now open. The next APS March Meeting will be held March 14-18, 2016 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD.
Please submit your abstracts by Nov 6, 2015.
Along with our traditional exciting DPOLY program, this year will feature several events. On Monday DPOLY and GSOFT will run two symposia, underscoring the impact of Sir Sam Edwards’ work on polymer dynamics and on statistical physics of disordered systems. On Wednesday, in conjunction with FIAP’s Industry Day and DCOMP, several invited sessions encompassing challenges in transitioning “From Nano to Meso” in polymers and composites, will be presented. Correlation of Polymer Topology and Performance Materials will be highlighted through invited symposia along the week together with some of the contributing sessions on co-polymers, and composites. To submit abstracts to one of these contributed sessions please chose the appropriate category and in the comment section writes “From Polymer Topology to Performance Materials”.
Finally we are looking for volunteers to assist in sorting abstracts. The sorters meeting will take place on December 9 at the APS headquarters in College Park, MD. If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in chairing a session at the March Meeting, please contact Dvora as well (email@example.com).
Padden nominations should be submitted by November 6 to Sanat Kumar (firstname.lastname@example.org) using the subject line "Padden_name of student". Candidates MUST submit their abstracts through the regular APS system, as well as sending it in with the application.
The Short Course this year is organized by Pinar Akcora on Polymer Nanocomposites.
