Covid Policy

Aligning with the CDC, POLY continues to monitor the ongoing situation of COVID-19. Amid a Covid integrated future, we recognize the continued difficulty in committing to and attending events in person. At this time, POLY and the event venue do not impose a vaccine mandate; however, masks are encouraged for all attendees inside the lecture space, especially those who are unvaccinated. The room will be set 2 seats per 6 feet and the room will be full. For the most up-to-date information regarding the virus and travel advisories, please refer to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website, U.S. Department of State, and World Health Organization.

Introduction

“Fire and Polymers - 2022” to be held at the Embassy Suites, Napa, CA will bring together chemists, material scientists, and fire safety scientists to discuss the newest advances and unsolved problems in this multidisciplinary field of research.  This workshop covers applied chemistry, chemical-focused materials science, chemical structure-property relationships, and fire safety science/engineering research and development topics.  This was previously a symposium offered every four years at various ACS national meetings, but has outgrown a national meeting symposium format. 

Objectives

The objectives of this workshop are as follows:

  • Provide state-of-the-art presentations on the current status of, and recent advancements in, flame retardancy of polymeric materials

  • Bring together leading research scientists and engineers in this field from around the world to foster networking and stimulate collaborative research.  New insights and new advances will be made through these connections.

  • Promote better awareness of the utility of and opportunities for flame retardants in many applications to all participants (academic, industrial, and government).
