The 8th International Conference on Polyolefin Characterization (ICPC)
will be held on May 21-24, 2023 in Valencia, Spain.

January 2022

The ICPC Committee is glad to announce that the 8th Edition of the ICPC Conference will be held on May 21-24, 2023 in Valencia, Spain. After having to postpone the conference for three years due to the Pandemic, the new date is considered to be safer for attendees to travel and gather, and we are excited about resuming the program. Registration is available online, and Call-for-Papers is also open. See you in Valencia

The Short Course will be held on Sunday 21, followed by the Conference on Monday 22- Wednesday 24, 2023. 

This conference is organised specifically for researchers in the polyolefin industry and will cover all of the most important topics of polyolefin characterisation. This important event is the only one of its kind and has steadily gained prestige and popularity among the community because it brings the world’s finest experts together with scientists looking to exchange experiences and know-how specific to characterisation techniques.

As in every edition, the quality of the contents is carefully put together so that new, as well as repeating participants can find it of value to their work and professional trajectory. This edition’s technical program will be comprised of: Separation and fractionation, molecular structure and properties, morphology, thermal analysis, rheology, and spectroscopy.

As part of the conference program, a Short Course on Polyolefin Separation Techniques is also scheduled for October 25, at the same venue. This one-day intensive course is an ideal way to learn the main concepts about polyolefin microstructure, GPC basics and applications, chemical composition distribution (CRYSTAF, TREF and CEF), cross fractionation, high temperature HPLC and Preparative Fractionation.

With previous editions held in Houston, Valencia and Shanghai, it is expected that the third Valencia based conference will be as well received as the previous events. The last ICPC had participation from more than 150 attendees who represented the major players in polyolefin characterisation from 16 countries.

Throughout all previous conferences, the ICPC has received the support of leading chemical, polymer, research and instrumentation companies including Agilent Technologies, Borealis, Braskem, Chevron Phillips, The Dow Chemical Company, the Dutch Polymer Institute (DPI), ExxonMobil, SABIC, Lyondellbasell, Malvern Instruments, Polymer Char, Tosoh Bioscience, Polymer Standards Service, Postnova Analytics, Progression Inc., SCG Chemicals, Shenhua, Waters Corporation or Wyatt Technology.

As with the previous events, the conference will have a posters session, exhibition area and vendor speeches.

The conference will be accompanied by Posters Sessions, a Booth area and Vendor speeches. 
Call for papers is now open.
