With Spring 2014 National Meeting only three weeks away, details on PMSE sessions can be found on the Dallas ACS Meeting page.
Highlighs include a plenary leacture from Joseph DeSimone and sessions covering electrospinning, supramolecular assembly, conjugated polymers, dynamic/responsive polymers, and the rational design of functional polymeric materials. Awards will be presented for the 2014 ACS Applied Polymer Science Award and the 2014 Cooperative Research Award. The 2013 class of PMSE Fellows will speak in a symposia held in their honor.
And as a reminder, the sumbission deadline for the Fall 2014 ACS Meeting, held in San Fransciso, is March 10th for PMSE abstracts.

The American Chemical Society Division of Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering (PMSE) has just completed its process to select a new class of PMSE Fellows for 2014 and the following distinguished PMSE members have been chosen:
Emmanuel Giannelis, Jay FriedrichKunzler, David Martin, & Edwin L. “Ned” Thomas
They will be inducted as the Fourteenth Class of PMSE Fellows at the New Orleans ACS Meeting during the joint PMSE/POLY Awards Reception on Wednesday evening, March 19 2014. PMSE is pleased to welcome this distinguished group of polymer scientists and engineers to the ranks of fellows. Here is a short description of each of their careers and accomplishments:

Nominations are invited for the Division of Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering’s Cooperative Research Award in Polymer Science and Engineering Sponsored by the Eastman Kodak Company. The Division believes that this award is unique,relevant and timely to today’s research environment. It is given to recognize and encourage sustained cooperative research between industrial and academic or industrial and national laboratory scientists. The cooperative research must be of significant importance to polymer science and technology.
