About

CBPOL - Brazilian Polymer Congress - is a biennial event that has been going on for 30 years, since 1991. It is organized by the Brazilian Polymers Association - ABPol and welcomed about 800 participants in its 15th edition.

The 16th CBPol will be held from October 24 to 28, 2021, in a totally online format, having as “virtual venue” Ouro Preto in Minas Gerais - a revolutionary city which is always ahead of its time. In addition to the novelty of its digital format, this will be the first International CBPol and we are looking forward to the attendance of researchers, students and organizations from several countries.

Former capital of Minas Gerais in colonial times, Vila Rica, besides being recognized for its architectural beauties, is also a symbol of progress and innovation. Home of one of the first Higher Education Institutions in Latin America, created in 1839, the cosmopolitan Ouro Preto is in tune with the objectives of the 16th CBPol where internationally renowned scientists, researchers and students from Brazil, Latin America and other countries will present and discuss their research on polymers.

In parallel, delegates will be able to attend online technical exhibitions and webinars from polymer companies and laboratory equipment manufactures, which will enrich discussions by recycling ideas and renewing concepts.

We encourage the participation of all those who think polymers plays a fundamental role in modern society. We strongly believe that this will be a more comprehensive, innovative and inclusive CBPol due to its online format and international participations.

Share your ideas and let´s write another chapter of our history!.

Be welcome!

A avaliação será baseada nos seguintes critérios: organização, visual, hipótese/metodologia, tempo de apresentação, domínio do tema, mérito científico, originalidade, conjunto do trabalho realizado. Em caso de empate, será usado como desempate a média das categorias mérito científico, originalidade e conjunto do trabalho realizado.

No link a seguir há uma lista de dicas sobre preparação de pôster para congressos científicos e sobre como preparar sua apresentação curta (“pitch”, em inglês) para um interessado em seu trabalho.

Honored City

Located in the central region of Minas Gerais, the city of Ouro Preto brings together the largest and most important collection of architecture and art from the colonial period in Brazil. In the middle of the 17th and 18th century houses built on the slopes of a mountainous region, 13 monumental churches are erected, with altars bathed in gold and sacred images, in Baroque and Rococo styles. Due to its importance and conservation, Ouro Preto was one of the first cities chosen in the world to be a World Heritage Site, in 1980, by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco).

Its origin dates from the last decade of the 17th century, with the discovery of stones containing gold on the bottom of a creek: a fact that attracted hundreds of São Paulo pioneers and made the region rich for almost a century. In appearance, they were stones with a dark surface; hence, the name Ouro Preto. After melting, they became yellow.

Walking through the city's historic narrow streets can reveal relevant part of the history and culture of Minas Gerais and Brazil. Going up and down the slopes of the city while enjoying the views of three-hundred-year-old houses, churches, monuments, shops and fairs is an unmissable experience. The gastronomy of Minas Gerais is also another chapter in this storyline that needs to be highlighted.

The municipality of Ouro Preto is endowed with natural beauty: a mountainous region with beautiful valleys, waterfalls, springs and viewpoints. Visitors can visit some districts that maintain their traditions, gastronomy and festivities associated with the times of the gold cycle. The parks, with their mountains and valleys, are another invitation to a walk, to experience beautiful landscapes and bathing in waterfalls. A highlight is Parque do Itacolomi, where Pico do Itacolomi is located, with 1,722 m, which can be visited through a trail that leads to its summit.

For all these historical, artistic, cultural and natural attractions that the city of Ouro Preto transforms all your stay in historical days.
