Abstract : The program for the conference covers a broad range of topics, including polyions and block ionomers in solution, self-assembly and pattern recognition, electrophoresis and polyelectrolyte gels, inorganic mesophases and nano-composites, ionomer theory and block ionomer surfaces, ionomer phase behavior and microstructures, dendrimers and graft copolymers. Four lectures were set aside to cover the recent advances in fuel cells with emphasis on PEM fuel cells. New results were presented on polyelectrolyte and ionomer experiments which provided further development on theory related to charged polymer structure, conformation and self-assembly behavior. The advances in creating inorganic nano-structured materials look particularly interesting and promising. The sessions on fuel cells were well received. jg
