Message from Honorary Chair, PPS 2023

On behalf of the Polymer Processing Society (PPS), Polymer Processing Academy (PPA) and the local organizing committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to the Asia Australia Regional Meeting of Polymer Processing Society, PPS-2023, to be held at Uday Samudra Kovalam, Kerala, India th nd during 29 November - 2 December 2023. The objective of the conference is to foster exchange of developments and innovations in Polymer Engineering related areas. A galaxy of international polymer scientists are invited to deliver lectures

The PPS Meetings are leading conferences in the field of Polymer Science & Engineering and attract internationally renowned scientists, engineers and designers. The goals of the Society, as embodied in its constitution, are to foster scientific understanding and technical innovation in polymer processing by providing a discussion forum.. The thematic range of the PPS encompasses all formulation, conversion and shaping operations applied to polymeric systems and their transformation to commercial products with attractive properties.

We are indeed privileged that a PPS Conference will be held in India for a 4th time. We were fortunate to have hosted three PPS Meetings in India - the 8th Annual PPS in 1992 at Delhi, the 25th PPS in 2009 at Goa and the PPS Regional Meeting in 2013at Mumbai. All these Conferences were highly successful in terms of participation and quality of technical presentations. The Executive Committee decided to hold the PPS Regional Meeting in India in 2023 on account of enhanced research activities and growth of polymer industry in the country. The experience of PPS Conferences motivated us to take the polymer processing activities in India to greater heights with active interaction between the Academia and the Industry, which culminated in the establishment of the Polymer Processing Academy (PPA) in 2011 with support and guidance from eminent personalities and industry stalwarts.
