3–8 September 2006, Il Ciocco, Italy
The 4th International Symposium on Radical Polymerization:
Kinetics and Mechanism will take place in September
at the Il Ciocco hotel in the province of Lucca (Tuscany),
This symposium series is based on a scientific program covering
all aspects of radical polymerization. It emphasizes poster
sessions and avoids parallel sessions. The Italian setting
contributes to the atmosphere, and all participants are accommodated
in the same hotel, Il Ciocco, encouraging and facilitating
interactions between participants. The previous three symposia
were held also held in Italy: at Santa Margherita Ligure in
1987 and 1996, and at Il Ciocco in 2001.
The meeting will take place from Sunday evening (3 September
2006) through Friday evening (8 September 2006). No lectures
will be given on Wednesday, when two main excursions will
The scientific program will center on the following topics:
fundamentals of free radical polymerization
• heterogeneous polymerization
• controlled radical polymerization
• polymer reaction engineering
• polymer characterization
topic will be covered by main lectures given by invited speakers
(approximately 23). Eight more short lectures will be selected
from the submitted poster abstracts. The preliminary program
can be found on the conference Web site.
