This Seminar, the seventh such event, is intended to give the opportunity to researchers, particularly Ph.D. students, interested in synthesis, characterisation and processing of modern polymeric (nano)materials for environmental applications, to meet and to present and discuss the results of their research. The aim of the seminar is to further the understanding of polymers and especially structure-properties relationships in advanced environmentally-friendly macromolecular materials. The scope of the seminar encompasses homopolymers, copolymers, blends, hybrids and (nano)composites that are either biodegradable (biocompatible) or may have a positive influence on the environment, e.g. in photovoltaics, conducting/electroluminescent devices and energy storage.The seminar programme will comprise keynote lectures, oral presentations and posters. Peer-reviewed conference proceedings, abstracted by the Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), will be edited and published with an ISBN number.

During the conference Special Session titled 'Recent Advances in Polymer Nanocomposites and Hybrid Materials' will be organized.
