SCUT hosted over 150 academics from all over the world at the 2017 International Symposium for Soft Matter Science and Technology, which took place from April 18 to 19.
Top specialists from nearly 30 universities and research institutions presented their latest research across a wide range of topics in soft matter related areas, including physics, chemistry, material science and engineering.
Professor Yu Qijun, Deputy Secretary of the CPC SCUT Committee, attended the opening ceremony. He introduced SCUT’s recent progress in material science and polymer science in his opening remarks, and expected to see more communications and collaborations between SCUT and other institutions.
During eight sessions in two days, keynote talks from leading scientists of the US, China, Europe and Japan took focuses on five subjects: natural polymers and polymer hybrid, physics of polymer melts and solutions, supramolecular assemblies, functional and intelligent materials, as well as biological system.
The symposium was hosted by the South China Advanced Institute for Soft Matter Science and Technology (AISMST), a research platform established by SCUT in 2016 to bring together high profile academics worldwide to conduct frontier researches on soft matter and technology application.
