An International Conference,
In the long range the proposed conference should impact modern technology through the design of new materials with specified and superior properties, such as, for example, smart materials.
The conference will take place in the Goodyear Auditorium of the Goodyear Polymer Center at The University of Akron, September 15-17, 2000. Speaker sessions will be ninety minutes in length with each speaker allotted thirty minutes for presentation and questions. On September 15th, we plan to have two morning sessions and two afternoon sessions and a reception in the evening. Two morning sessions, an afternoon poster session, and a panel discussion are scheduled for September 16. The conference banquet will be held the evening of September 16. On September 17, we plan two morning sessions followed by informal discussions. We shall provide coffee breaks for the participants so that there will be more opportunity for scientific discussions and interactions between the participants.
