An important activity of the working group macromolecular chemistry in Austria is the organization of a polymer meeting. The so-called Austrian Polymer Days were organized for the first time in 1995 in Seggau. This polymer focused conference developed to a successful series growing in size but also in geographical importance. In 2008 the meeting was for the first time jointly organized by the polymer groups in Slovenia and Austria and then called “Austrian Slovenian Polymer Meeting”.
Building on this tradition polymer experts form the greater region of Central Europe were brought together under the new title “Danube-Vltava-Sava Polymer Meeting”. The first conference took place in 2015 in Gmunden, Upper Austria. The target of the meeting was to facilitate the communication between industry and academia; it covered recent developments in the field as well as future targets and trends.
