The 4th European Symposium of Photopolymer Science will be held in Leipzig, Germany, from September 11-14, 2016. It is organized by the Leibniz Institute of Surface Modification (IOM). ESPS 2016 is the follow-up meeting of a series of previous, very successful ESPS meetings in Mulhouse (2010), Torino (2012), and Vienna (2014).

The objective of the European Symposium of Photopolymer Science is to provide a fruitful platform for cross-disciplinary exchange on cutting-edge developments in the field of photopolymerization. It aims to bring together experts from both academia and industry in order to communicate their latest results. Moreover, it is the intention of the organizers to provide ample time for discussion to stimulate the exchange of new exciting ideas and concepts.

The program of ESPS 2016 will be mainly based on invited talks given by leading scientists working in the field of photopolymerization science. A number of scientists from Europe, America and Asia have already agreed to give invited lectures. Moreover, papers for oral presentation as well as posters may be submitted. The meeting will cover all aspects of photopolymerization such as the fundamental understanding of initiation and polymerization reactions, photopolymerization kinetics, photoinitiator and monomer synthesis, new analytical methods, structure-property relations as well as applications in established and emerging fields.

We look forward to seeing you at ESPS 2016 in Leipzig!
