The last “Advances in Polyolefins” Workshop (APO 2022) was held in September 2022, with 87 in attendance. This Advances in Polyolefins (APO 24), will be the 14th in this series held biennially. Topics will include catalysis, characterization, physical/mechanical behavior, structure/property relationships, thermal analysis, melt rheology, processing/fabrication, applications, stability/degradation phenomena, and blends/composites. All invited speakers are experts in their areas from both industries and academia worldwide. This workshop will again bring together researchers from industrial, academic, and government laboratories to discuss the state-of-the-art in polyolefin chemistry and technology. The purpose of this workshop is to address key challenges, opportunities and advances in the area of polyolefin research. We are making changes (more social and meal events) to how this workshop is run to allow maximum interactions among all participants.
