Realisation of the PolyMerTec 2021 conference and the problem seminar "Deformation and fracture behaviour of plastics" in digital format.

The worldwide progression of the COVID 19 pandemic continues to influence public and private life. There is currently no assessment of the development and the possibility of a safe journey and general planning of participation, especially from the most severely affected countries.

For this reason, the chairpersons of the conference – Prof. Dr. Beate Langer and Prof. Dr. Peter Michel – has decided to hold both events in digital format.

The date from 09 June to 11 June 2021 will remain unchanged.

All previous registrations and bookings of exhibitors remain valid. Cancellations – if necessary – are possible without complications, and payments will of course be fully refunded in this case. For participation fees already paid, an individual correction will be made on the basis of the current fee.

The fee is 255.- EUR for participation of the conference.

We are particularly pleased that the financial support from the DFG also applies to the realisation of a digital conference.

We look forward to two interesting and exciting events!

Best wishes and stay healthy!
