Bio-Based Polymers

12–14 November 2003, Saitama, Japan

In the last few years, the science and technology of bio-based polymers has increased tremendously in significance. The 1st International Conference on Bio- Based Polymers (ICBP 2003) —the first in what will be a bi-annual series— will bring together scientists and engineers with an interest in this subject.

Bio-based polymers include various synthetic polymers derived from renewable plant resources and CO2, biopolymers (nucleic acids, polyamides, polysaccharides, polyesters, polyisoprenoids, and polyphenols), their derivatives, and their blends. Today, research and development on bio-based polymers are important at both academic and industrial research centers.

All conference programs, including plenary lectures, oral presentations, and the exhibition of posters will be held in the Suzuki Umetaro Hall of RIKEN Institute in Saitama, Japan. The official language of the conference is English. The registration fee covers admission to all sessions, abstract book, lunches, coffee, refreshments, and conference banquets on 12 and 13 November. Participants wishing to present a paper are invited to submit a camera-ready abstract for oral or poster presentation by 31 July 2003.
