The Pacific Polymer Federation (PPF) was created in 1987 by a group of like-minded individuals from Japan, USA and Australia, and has grown to become the largest organisation representing polymer scientists, engineers and technologists from the Pacific nations. The Pacific Polymer Conference, held every two years in member countries, is the primary means of communication for our members. These are comprehensive conferences, spanning all areas of polymer research. Polymer science is inherently multidisciplinary, and so the themes of our conference cover all areas of major importance to our technological society.

Dr Fangfang Chen gave an invited talk, showing her recent computational research on poly(ionic liquid) electrolytes. Dr Chen was also a session chair in the “Theory and Computational Modelling” session in the conference. Student Gongyue Huang was pleased to present a poster at this event.
