+++ Update +++
We regret to inform you that, taking into account the current situation and due to the increasing spread of the virus SARS-CoV-2 (Coronavirus), we have decided to cancel the MoDeSt 2020 from 06. to 10. September 2020 in Berlin completely.
We have kept working hard to rescue the conference happening in September. Everything was fixed, conference site, catering, conference dinner, poster dinner, boot trip, hotels, and so on, but we take our responsibility for the health of our employees, partners and guests very seriously and hope for your understanding.
Registered participants will receive separate information regarding the participation fees already paid as soon as possible.
Thank you very much four your understanding.

MoDeSt 2020: 11th Conference on Modification, Degradation and Stabilization of Polymers
The conference aim is to provide a forum for polymer scientists and engineers to present and share the state-of-the-art knowledge on polymer modification, degradation and stabilization and related areas.
- Polymer degradation and stabilization (including fire retardancy and art conservation)
- Polymers and environment (recycling, reuse, biodegradation, bio-based polymers)
- Polymer modification, blends, composites and nanostructured polymers
- Polymers for innovative technical and medical applications (including polymer coatings and optoelectronic materials)
