Go Matsuba
IDMPC 2024 Conference Chairman

Yamagata University, Japan

The meeting continues the series of biennial meetings (Beijing 2011, Kyoto 2013, Honolulu 2015, Wittenberg 2017, San Sebastian 2019) aiming at a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of polymer crystallization, which was initiated by Prof. Gert Strobl, University of Freiburg in 1999. This time, after postpone due to COVID-19, it will take place at Yonezawa, Yamagata in Japan from September 17–20, 2024.

In addition to the classical topics of polymer crystallization the meeting will include computer simulation. Whereas the relevance of semi-crystallinity is established for functional polymers, current research indicates common underlying physical principles also for partially ordered structures in synthetic and biopolymers.

New developments from experiment, theory and simulation will be presented in invited talks and posters. The meeting will provide ample time for discussion.
