The "Congresso Brasileiro de Polímeros" (Brazilian Polymer Congress) is a biennial event which takes place at different locations in Brazil, near centers where groups active in polymer research exist. When it started, in 1991, the number of participants was small and most of them came from the universities and industries of the states of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. With time, the Brazilian community working on polymer research has expanded and other groups appeared, even in the most distant regions and states, from Rio Grande do Sul in the extreme south to Cear in the north of the country. This not only increased the number of participants but also the quality of the research presented at the meetings. Nowadays this Congress represents the most important meeting on polymer science in South America, involving participants from this continent as well as from other laboratories throughout the world. The support provided by IUPAC to the meeting held at Gramado, in November 2001, is an indication of the quality and acceptance of the meeting within the international community. This support includes the publication of this special issue of Macromolecular Symposia containing review articles written by the researchers who gave the plenary lectures, which covered all areas of interest to the participants.
