Polymer Networks Group 2022

Rome, June 12th – 16th


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are about to start working for the next edition of the Polymer Networks Group Workshop. It will be held in mid-June 2022 in Rome, after four years from the Prague’s edition and the unfortunate cancellation of the 2020 edition due to the pandemic emergency. In this period the activities in the laboratories around the world have not stopped and in Rome we expect a lot of enthusiastic people willing to report and discuss after such long, forced stop from meeting each other.

In addition, the 2022 PNG workshop site will be at Rome, the Eternal City, the town that has resisted and accompanied any kind of historical events, for more than 2000 years. Rome will be the perfect scenario for the re-establishment of our community meetings.

We will be sending periodic announcements and information materials as the event gets closer.

We hope to see you all back together in Rome in 2022 in the historical University of Rome “Sapienza”, at walking distance from “Termini”, the main railroad station in Rome and airport terminal, in a central zone of the town where you can find a huge number of hotels for your needs (a list of hotels will be provided in due time).

Check already on your agenda these days! We look forward to meeting you in Rome!

Gaio Paradossi, Chair

Please, note

As in previous years, please be aware that there is another 2022 conference called the ICPGN 2022: 16. International Conference on Polymer Gels and Networks. It is scheduled for dates in July in Bali. That conference is organized by WASET, an organization known for hosting “predatory conferences” (search in google on “WASET scam”). We do not recommend it to anyone. The PNG organized by WASET is not in any way connected to or endorsed by the SCI and our partners, nor is it organized by any reputable group or international/European Association known to us.
