Professor, President of Polymer Society Thailand
The Polymer Society of Thailand (PST) was founded in 1999 by Thai academic and industrial polymer scientists. The society plays its important role as the center for the community so that the research, development and innovation including the recreation activities can be done through the network. In order to achieve the goals, the PST realizes the importance of annual meeting by organizing the Polymer Conference of Thailand (PCT) annually since 2010 as a stage to strengthen the network where the advancement of polymer can be cultivated through the presentations, discussions, idea exchanging, and collaborations among the members either from academia or industrial sector. The PST also considered the PCT as the stage to recognize the young polymer scientists in the country and announce its 'Thai Polymer Society Rising Star Award' since PCT-3. In PCT-5, the scope was extended to an international conference where the Plenaries, Keynotes, and students were invited from abroad so that the international networks and collaborations as well as the raising of the meeting quality can be expected.
