Dear Colleagues and Friends:

    We are pleased to announce that the 4th Symposium on Innovative Polymers for Controlled Delivery (SIPCD 2016) will be held in the Worldhotel Grand Dushulake, Suzhou, China in September 23-26, 2016.

    SIPCD held biennially since 2010 has been established as a high-level conference in the fields of biomaterials, controlled drug delivery, protein and cell delivery, gene delivery, polymer-based diagnostics, and tissue engineering. In SIPCD 2016, we will welcome about 550 participants from all over the world. SIPCD 2016 has planned 4 plenary and 27 keynote lectures by leading experts, one educational lecture on "how to write a great paper" by a senior publisher, and about 300 poster presentations by prominent young researchers and PhD students. The symposium is organized in one single session, thus offering you the possibility to be present at all invited lectures and to participate in lively discussions about the most recent developments as well as challenges in innovative delivery.

    Suzhou, about one hour by car or 30 mins by train away from Shanghai, is one of the most popular tourism cities in China. The city is well known for its long history (over 2500 years), unique culture, beautiful traditional Chinese gardens, impressive canal systems, stone bridges, and silk products. Suzhou is also recognized as the No. 1 innovation city in China. 

Highlights of SIPCD 2016

*        4 Plenary and 27 Keynote lectures by top scientists including editors and associate editors of over 10 prestigious journals (e.g. Science, Nano Today, Biomaterials, Journal of Controlled Release, Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews, ACS Nano, Biomacromolecules, Acta Biomaterialia, Bioconjugate Chemistry, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, Polymer Chemistry, Materials Horizons, etc.).

*        An author tutorial on “How to Write a Great Paper” by a senior Elsevier publisher.

*        8 Best Poster Awards (each with 300 US$) sponsored and presented by Biomacromolecules (ACS, IF 5.75). The awardees are also invited to submit a paper to be published in Biomacromolecules.

*        Publication of a special issue in the Journal of Controlled Release (Elsevier, IF 7.705). The SIPCD special issues receive particular attention (with high citation) from the readers due to its exclusive collection of works from top research groups.

*        Online publication of all accepted poster abstracts (with a separate DOI number) in the Journal of Controlled Release

*        Vivid social program (including welcome reception, poster session with wine, banquet, city and garden tour, etc.) which offers a relaxing atmosphere for net-working.
