The 7th Panhellenic Polymer Conference took place on September 28 – October 1, 2008, at Ioannina, organised by the HSR member prof. G. Floudas. Special attention was given at the poster sessions by awarding the most prominent poster. Invited speakers included the following:

  • Prof. P. Alexandridis, SUNY – University at Buffalo
  • Prof. M. Bockstaller, Carnegie Mellon University
  • Prof. H. -J. Butt, Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research
  • Prof. G. Fytas, University of Crete and FORTH (HSR member)
  • Prof. N. Hadjichristidis, University of Athens
  • Prof. J. W. Mays, ORNL / University of Tennessee at Knoxville

  • Prof. D. Theodorou, National Technical University of Athens (HSR member)
  • Prof. E. L. Thomas, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The invited lectures given by HSR members were:
“Tailoring sound propagation by mesoscopic engineering of soft matter”,
G. Fytas, Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Department of Materials Science & Technology, U. of Crete, and FO.R.T.H
“From chemical structure to physical properties of polymers via hierarchical modelling”,
