Advances in Polymer Nanocomposites
18 - 19 October, 2021
October 18 - 19, 2021
A virtual experience
ACS Seminars is a new series of virtual events hosted by ACS in collaboration with institutes in India for researchers looking to engage with globally distinguished names in the field of chemistry and interfacing areas of science.
The first event of ACS Seminars is organized in collaboration with the Dept. of Polymer and Process Engineering, IIT Roorkee, Saharanpur Campus. The two-day virtual event will witness ten international speakers discuss their latest research and innovations in the field of Polymer Science & Engineering.
There is No Fee to attend the event however, pre- registration is mandatory to participate in the event.
