Northwestern Polytechnical University News Network on 23 October, (Geng Wangchang,Gu Junwei. press-photographer: Guo Youjun, Zhang Jinwei)Hosted by Northwestern Polytechnical University, jointly organized by School of Natural and Applied Science, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Chinese Materials Research Society of Polymer Materials and Engineering Branch, co-organized by Department of Material Science and Engineering, Taiwan University of Science and Technology, School of Materials Science and Engineering, South China University of Technology, “2017 Cross Strait Academic Symposium on applied polymers”(APSA-2017) was held successfully during October 20-23,2017 in Xi'an Guangcheng Grand Hotel.53 experts and scholars from Taiwan University, Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Chang Gung University, Feng Chia University, National Cheng Kung University, National Chung Hsing University, Yuan Ze University, Peking University, Fudan University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Sichuan University, Tianjin University, University of Science & Technology China, Xi'an Jiao Tong University, South China University of Technology, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Shaanxi Normal University, HeFei University of Technology, Beijing University of Chemical Technology, Nanjing University of Technology, Institute of Chemistry Chinese Academy of Sciences, Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry Chinese Academy of Sciences, Fujian Institute of material structure Chinese Academy of Sciences and other universities, institutes of scientific research across the Taiwan Strait focusing on new methods of polymer synthesis, polymer structure regulation and performance, functional polymers and their biomedical applications and other frontier areas made brilliant academic reports. More than 200 people from many universities and enterprises in China participated in this meeting.
The opening ceremony of the conference is presided over by Professor Zhang Qiuyu, Vice Dean of School of Natural and Applied Sciences. Professor Zhang Yanning, principal assistant, Deputy Director of Gou Xing Wang, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan office, Deputy Director of Liu Zhen Bao, office of discipline construction, and Professor Deng Zichen, Dean of Science, attended this conference. Professor Zhang Yanning, the principal assistant, on behalf of the school expressed warm welcome to the experts and scholars, and expressed congratulations on the successful convening of the conference, hoping that the two sides of universities and scientific research institutes take this as an opportunity to deepen and expand cooperation in scientific research and personnel training, to promote the development of Polymer Science in China hand in hand. Professor Deng Zichen, Dean of the school of science, gave a welcome speech on behalf of our school. He briefly introduced the characteristics and current situation of chemistry in our university, hoping that through this seminar, we will further promote academic collisions between our university and Cross Straits universities and scientific research institutes to expand cooperation and enhance friendship.
This symposium has been strongly supported by the office of the discipline construction of Northwestern Polytechnical University and the Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Office of Northwestern Polytechnical University. A total of 53 academic reports were arranged in the seminar, and there were two meeting, the Cross-Straits Forum and the Youth Forum, which have set up. During the two-day meeting, 53 reporters shared their latest scientific research results and innovative scientific ideas. In the meeting, the reporters and the conventioneers had a thorough exchange and discussion. Outside the meeting, scholars on both sides of the Taiwan Straits have discussed further cooperation to strengthen the cooperation of scientific research and graduate students.
Experts and scholars at the conference said that the successful hosting of this academic symposium further combed some important scientific problems and development directions in the field of Polymer Applications. Also, it was a good chance to provide a good platform for academic exchange cooperation between experts and scholars in the field of application of polymer on both sides of the Strait, and effectively promoted the collaborative innovation and rapid development in the field of Applied Polymer in China, which was significant to improve the academic level and academic influence of Polymer Science in our university.
