PPG/DPOLY Polymer Lecture Exchange
In order to strengthen ties between the Division of Polymer Physics (DPOLY) of the American Physical Society (APS) and the Polymer Physics Group (PPG), a PPG/DPOLY Polymer Lecture Exchange was established in 2009.
Starting with meetings in 2009 and offering every two years to coincide with PPG biennial meetings, each group will choose a young polymer scientist who will present an invited lecture at the meeting of the other group. The next nominations are targeted for presentations at the March 2011 APS and September 2011 PPG (Surrey, UK) meetings.
The lecturers selected for the 2009 exchange were Aline Miller (University of Manchester) and Connie Roth (Emory University).
Details of the nomination criteria and procedure for the 2011 exchange will be released later in 2010.
