Brasileiro de Polímeros" (Brazilian Polymer Congress)
is a biennial event which takes place at different locations in Brazil,
near centers where groups active in polymer research exist. When it
started, in 1991, the number of participants was small and most of
them came from the universities and industries of the states of Sao
Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. With time, the Brazilian community working
on polymer research has expanded and other groups appeared, even in
the most distant regions and states, from Rio Grande do Sul in the
extreme south to Cear in the north of the country. This not only increased
the number of participants but also the quality of the research presented
at the meetings. Nowadays this Congress represents the most important
meeting on polymer science in South America, involving participants
from this continent as well as from other laboratories throughout
the world. The support provided by IUPAC to the meeting held at Gramado,
in November 2001, is an indication of the quality and acceptance of
the meeting within the international community. This support includes
the publication of this special issue of Macromolecular Symposia containing
review articles written by the researchers who gave the plenary lectures,
which covered all areas of interest to the participants.
