The 5th International Conference on Polyolefin Characterization (ICPC) will be held at The Westin Valencia Hotel in Valencia, Spain, from 21–24 September 2014.

The 5th International Conference on Polyolefin Characterization (ICPC) will be held at The Westin Valencia Hotel in Valencia, Spain, from 21–24 September 2014. Valencia is the third largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona and is considered to be one of the greatest business and cultural capitals of the Mediterranean region.

ICPC is the meeting point for polyolefin experts, bringing together professionals from industry and academia. In previous years, scientists interested in polyolefin characterization have attended from more than 24 countries. The conference includes a technical programme that consists of oral and poster sessions presented by distinguished experts from around the world. Topics covered include: separation and fractionation; molecular structure and properties; morphology; rheology; and spectroscopy. The ICPC technical committee is formed by: Dr Benjamin Monrabal (Polymer Char, Spain); Dr Colin Li Pi Shan (The Dow Chemical Company, USA); Professor Joćo Soares (University of Alberta, Canada); Professor Minoru Terano (JAIST, Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Japan); and Professor Dujin Wang (ICCAS, Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China).

In addition to the main technical programme, a short course titled "Polyolefin Characterization Techniques" will be held on 21 September. This oneday intensive course will cover the main concepts about polyolefin microstructure; GPC basics; applications; practical considerations and calculations; chemical composition distribution techniques; high-temperature HPLC; and preparative fractionation. A full agenda of the short course is available on the website.
