Abstract : The idea for a Polymers and Energy Conservation Workshop developed in early 1977. Until that time the Department of Energy had relatively little interaction with the polymer community. Although many and varied materials research and development programs existed in the different parts of the Agency, little attention had been paid to polymers. In order to attempt to fill this void in the area of energy conservation R&D, this workshop was planned for late 1977. The purposes of the workshop were: (1) To introduce the polymer community to the Department of Energy, and in particular, to the Energy Conservation Programs; (2) To begin a dialogue between the polymer community and DOE; (3) To ask the polymer community, in an informal way, what programs and problems they thought the DOE should be pursuing in the area of Polymer Science R&D; (4) To discuss via formal presentations, some of the pertinent areas of interest on the part of DOE in Polymer Science R&D.
