Dear Friends,

First of all, we hope that you and your families are safe during this tough time with COVID-19 pandemic. After much consideration and waiting until the last minute, we decided to cancel BiPoCo2020. There is much uncertainty regarding a second wave, as well as travel and other restrictions. We have not decided yet whether to postpone the Conference for next year or the year after. Further information about the new date will be shared with you as soon as it is available.

We regret very much any inconvenience this situation might have caused you and that we cannot meet you this year in Hungary.

Stay safe and healthy!

Best regards,
Béla Pukánszky


Goals & scope

Our first International Conference on Bio-based Polymers and Composites (BiPoCo) was organized in 2012 focusing on the characterization, modification and application of biopolymers. The success of the conference initiated the organization of the BiPoCo 2014 in Visegrád, BiPoCo 2016 meeting in Szeged and the 4th conference in Balatonfüred in 2018. The scope of the conference was extended with topics on smart, nano-structured systems for controlled molecular release and particular attention was paid to the biomedical application of polymers. The positive feedback given by the participants of former BiPoCo meetings encouraged us to organize the conference for the fifth time in 2020 with a renewed scope reflecting the current trends in the synthesis and application of biopolymers.
