“Fire and Polymers - 2024” to be held at the Embassy Suites, New Orleans, LA 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.
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).
