Save the Date - May 5th, 2017

We are breaking from tradition, the colloquium in 2017 will take place on the Friday, May 5th, 2017. Our tradition has been to hold the colloquium on the Friday after the ANTEC conference. Unfortunately, this conflicts with graduation weekend at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Therefore, we will be hosting the 17th Annual International Polymer Colloquium the Friday before ANTEC, May 5th, 2017. If you have any questions, please contact Christian Schafer, cschaefer3@wisc.edu.

ANTEC 2017 will be in Anaheim, CA from May 8th to May 10th, 2017.

16th Annual International Polymer Colloquium

General Information

This event is hosted by Professor Tim Osswald, Professor Tom Turng and Professor Natalie Rudolph from the Polymer Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The Annual International Polymer Colloquium brings together polymer professionals from America, Asia and Europe to discuss topics regarding advancements in polymer technology. There will be keynote sessions, technical forums, and poster exhibitions, all of which will provide you with the latest technical developments in the subject.


The 16th International Polymer Colloquium will be dedicated in honor of UW-Madison alumus, Tom Mohs, the founder of Placon, Inc.
