On behalf of the Board of Directors of the French Polymer Society, we are pleased to invite you to Mulhouse, France, to attend the 48th International Colloquium of GFP, Monday - Friday, 25th november - 29th november 2019.

In addition to 43 oral communications, we propose throughout the week different highlights: poster pitch and two round tables with experts from different disciplines. The first one concerns the issue of open access publications and the second one concerns the plastics : truth and untruth.


Five major topics will be addressed

Polymers and light

Polymer interfaces and (nano)composites

Macromolecular and supramolecular engineering

Polymers and sustainable development

Polymer materials : from structure to properties.


Located in the South of Alsace, Mulhouse is the second largest city in the region.

With the largest protestant building in France, the most prestigious car collection in the world and a unique collection of museums, the only Michelin-starred Italian restaurant in France, protected animals living in an exceptional Botanical garden, rehabilitated industrial zones, the largest market in eastern France, artisan boutiques, charming timber villages… these are only a few of the special attractions that make Mulhouse and the surrounding region an Alsatian destination that is unique, dynamic and surprising, attracting 2.5 million visitors per year.

The conference venue, the KinePolis Conferences Center, is located in the center of Mulhouse.



For this year, we aim at giving a more international dimension to this meeting, thanks to the privileged location of Mulhouse, at the border with Germany and Switzerland. We expect between 150 and 180 attendees from a wide range of backgrounds and countries, and from universities, research centers or industry, to report on the most recent advances in domains linked to polymers (synthesis, characterization, processing, properties, applications).
