Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, the organization committee has officially decided to postpone the 4th International Symposium on Polybenzoxazines, ISPBZ 2020, set to take place on 23-25 September, to 2-4 June 2021.

Welcome to the ISPBZ 2021 website!

The 4th International Symposium on Polybenzoxazines, ISPBZ 2021, will take place in Luxembourg on 2-4 June 2021 and is organised by the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST).

Polybenzoxazines are a new generation of polymer thermosets that meet the requirements of high performance industries like aerospace or automotive. Furthermore, the versatility and scalability of these polymers make them highly attractive for the elaboration of advanced materials, with specific stimulus responsive-behaviours.

The symposium will focus on the most recent advances in our understanding of the common properties of benzoxazine, as well as the latest progress towards their technological exploitation. Special attention will be given to their industrial development, from their synthesis to their exploitation in concrete applications.

* Considering the on-going Covid19 pandemic and the regulations applied by the Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the conference could be held fully/partly online if conditions do not improve.
