This symposium focuses on discussing materials science and technology of soft materials based on polymers. Polymer is classified as soft materials, and it is widely available as polymer solution, surface and bulk materials. Fundamental mechanism of various structures and functions in wide scale of time and space has been extensively reported due to the technical progress. Topics will include various fundamental and advanced applications in diverse areas as colloids, gels, suraface, interface, elastmers, biopolymers, self-assemble materials, drug delivery, and bio-related systems.


1.Synthesis and characterization of soft materials
2.Structural and functional design
3.Role and function of soft material in material science and technology
4.Application in various fields
