Polymeric materials have invaded almost all areas of current scientific disciplines and technological applications ranging from packaging films to pharmaceuticals, biomolecules and devices, molecular design, optoelectronic devices to hybrid materials for aerospace engineering. Polymers are playing leading role in the advancement of nanotechnology and artificial intelligence related industries today. POLY-CHAR conferences will provide excellent networking among senior scientists, young researchers and students and experts from academia as well from industries.

POLY-CHAR believes in regular and unconditional care and mentoring to the new generation scientists by of the senior ones; and hence puts emphasis on international collaboration, young scientists’ promotion, and collegial environment. Thus, we, together with enthusiastic scientific community worldwide, have agreed to move forwards with “POLY-CHAR YYYY [Venue]” international conferences (whereby the year and conference venue will change every year). We will keep up with the spirit of:

  • Excellence in scientific qualities and innovations,
  • Organizational framework governed by rules and mutual respects,
  • Worldwide networking of scientists of different levels,
  • Collegial environment, solidarity and collaboration, and
  • Emphasis on providing research platforms and mentorship to young scientists.

We are delighted to announce the international conference “POLY-CHAR 2019 [Kathmandu]” in Kathmandu, Nepal from May 19 – 23, 2019 with the main theme “Polymers for Sustainable Global Development”. This event will be dedicated to the 100th anniversary of International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

The conference, to be hosted jointly by Nepal Polymer Institute (NPI) and Research Centre for Applied Science and Technology (RECAST), Tribhuvan University, will be accompanied by a one day Short Course on Polymer Characterization foryoung scientists on May 19, 2019. There will be special prizes and travel grants for limited number of selected young researchers and students to attend the POLY-CHAR congress.

We cordially welcome you to attend POLY-CHAR 2019 by presenting your research and innovation results in the form of posters, lectures or as demonstrations.
