Dear GEP-SLAP 2022 participant

In the attached circular and on the Congress website ( you can find the relevant information about the Congress. For updated information, please subscribe to the Congress Blog.

As a result of the positive evolution of the pandemic, the Organizing Committee of the GEP / SLAP2022 Congress (XVI Meeting of the Specialized Group of Polymers – GEP 2022 and XVII Latin American Symposium of Polymers - SLAP 2022) has decided to carry out the event exclusively in person on the scheduled dates of May 8 to 12, 2022. The congress will be held at the Palacio de Congresos KURSAAL in the city of San Sebastián, Spain, as planned in the first call.

As we all know, the spirit of the Congress responds to the criterion of being a meeting point between researchers from different disciplines in the field of polymer science and technology and a discussion forum for possible collaborations. It will also have a notable participation from the industrial field.

We look forward to meeting you all at the GEP-SLAP 2022. It will be the first face-to-face GEP or SLAP event for 4 years and, therefore, we count on many participants from different regions of Spain and from different countries in Latin America and the world to attend the Congress. The face-to-face nature of the Congress and the reestablishment of social and scientific relations seems more important / necessary today than ever.

We would like to add that the GEP-SLAP Congress, initially scheduled for May 2021, had more than 60 invited lectures and received more than 260 abstracts. We trust that participation in GEP-SLAP2022 will increase.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we cordially invite you to actively participate in GEP / SLAP 2022 in the welcoming city of San Sebastián
