ICPB5 aims to bring together worldwide leading experts on multiphysics approaches for the behavior of polymers and polymer-based nanomaterials for exchange of ideas, experiences and knowledge. Therefore, the conference will provide a unique forum convening researchers, scientists and engineers from industry, research laboratories and academia to present and discuss state-of-the-art developments.

The conference has as its main focus on fundamentals, applications and experiences referred to academia and industry within the field of “Behavior of Polymers and Polymer-Based Nanomaterials Related to their Structure”.

The leading topics of ICPB5 are:

- Advanced multiscale experimental technique;
- Computational methods, modeling and theory;
- Innovative methods for characterization at multiscale levels;
- Linkage between different length scales;
- Micro-mechanics and homogenization approaches;
- Microstructure sensitive materials design;
- Molecular dynamics modeling of structural transformations;
- Nano-filled, crystalline and nano-structured polymer materials;
- Polymer processing and molding;
- Properties-structure relationship at multiscale levels;
- Thermomechanical behavior of polymers and polymer-based nanomaterials.
