{    Baekeland 2016, held in Surrey, UK (Europe Location)

{    Baekeland 2018 to be held in Shanghai, China (Asia Location)

The purpose of the meeting is to review the present trends and developments in all types of

thermoset resins (not only phenolics) essentially from a R&D point of view. The following topics have been selected:

·      New developments in thermoset resins

·      Modified resins and composite materials

·      Analysis and characterization of thermosets

·      Modeling, processing and shaping

·       New applications
