MAY 2-4, 2012

Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten, Schluchsee, Germany (


The aim of this workshop is to discuss current challenges in polymer chemistry and the new opportunities provided by tailoring polymer architectures and tuning properties of organic and macromolecular systems. How can polymer design, (nano)structure formation and system integration contribute to solving existing problems of advanced materials and enabling new technologies? How do we define the future role of polymer chemistry and the priorities in polymer synthesis and materials development?

We propose to focus on new approaches and (dream) polymer products which meet the urgent demands of our society for renewable energy, communication, protection, and sustainable development. The discussions will be fueled by invited lectures (30 min) and stimulated by (invited) flash presentations. These presentations will give short statements on the limitations and challenges of existing approaches, raise questions or sketch new ideas.

During each session ample time will be reserved for discussions and all participants are welcome to present their opinion in flash presentations. Discussions are continued during the poster sessions in the evening.


The meeting is structured in four thematic areas:

Polymers for renewable energy technology and climate protection

Polymers for optoelectronics and microsystems

Responsive polymers and sustainable development

Supramolecular polymers and self-assembly: Bottom-up approaches to polymer materials and systems
