The Macromolecular Science and Engineering Division (MSED) of the Chemical Institute of Canada is dedicated to promoting the interests of the Canadian polymer science and engineering communities and recognizes excellence in polymer research at all levels with annual faculty, graduate, and undergraduate awards. Given the current restrictions that the COVID-19 pandemic has posed in organizing in-person conferences, MSED is initiating a series of virtual seminars (MSED-VS) to keep up the spirit of the researchers in this community, facilitate showcasing recent results, and enable researchers to connect and exchange ideas from the comfort of their home and/or office.
MSED-VS will host talks in all areas of polymer science and engineering, ranging from polymer synthesis and characterization to their applications in various exciting areas of science and technology. If you are interested in presenting in MSED-VS, please contact the organizers.
This seminar series is hosted monthly on Wednesdays at 1:30 pm ET.
- Once you have registered for the seminar series, you will receive a unique link to access the webinar. Please do not distribute this link.
- Registration will be confirmed for all upcoming sessions within the series.
