The 10th International Conference of Modification, Degradation and Stabilization of Polymers (MoDeSt2018)

Date: September 2 (Sun) to 6 (Thu), 2018

Venue: Yayoi Auditorium, Yayoi Campus, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan




On behalf of the Organizing committees, it is our great pleasure to inform you that the 10th International Conference of Modification, Degradation and Stabilization of Polymers (MoDeSt2018) will be held in The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan from September 2 (Sun) to 6 (Thu), 2018.


We believe that this memorial conference of MoDeSt2018 (Tokyo) will follow on the success of the earlier MoDeSt conferences: Krakow, Poland (2016); Portoroz, Slovenia (2014); Prague, Check Republic (2012); Athens, Greece (2010); Liege, Brussels (2008); San Sebastian, Spain (2006); Lyon, France (2004); Budapest, Hungary (2002); Palermo, Italy (2000). Until now, MoDeSt conferences were held in European countries. This MoDeSt2018 conference in Tokyo will be held for the first time at any place other than Europe.


The Modification, Degradation and Stabilization (MoDeSt) Society was founded with the aim of promoting a unique platform for knowledge exchange, mobility and networking among scientists and engineers working in the area of polymer modification, degradation and stabilization. The MoDeSt conferences cover the comprehensive and well-structured scientific programs covering the latest knowledge and developments in a wide range of areas related to the field of modification, degradation and stabilization of polymers.


Themes of the conference


  • Polymer Modification, Blends
  • Composites, Nanocomposites, Bionanocomposites
  • Polymer Degradation and Stabilization (including Fire Retardancy, Art Conservation)
  • Polymers for Innovative Technical and Medical Application
  • Polymers and Environment (Biodegradation, Bio-based Polymers, Recycling, Reuse)


We invite you to present at MoDeSt2018 your latest research finding and join with your colleagues to make MoDeSt2018 a memorable, significant and enjoyable scientific program.

We look forward very much to meet you in Tokyo, Japan.
