National Graduate Research Polymer Conference

Virginia Tech has received the honor to host the 2020 National Graduate Research Polymer Conference (NGRPC) – an American Chemical Society POLY Division-hosted event held every other year. The conference is hosted by graduate students, for graduate students highlighting polymer science and engineering with renown speakers from around the country/world with diverse research backgrounds. The conference will be held July 13-15th, 2020 with events at The Inn at Virginia Tech and Moss Arts Center.

 

We are expecting up to 300 conference attendees that we will house, cater, and entertain with an abundance of exceptional research for three days. Our goal is to provide meals over the course of the entire conference for all of the students in attendance.
