About the Symposium:

The American Chemical Society will include a symposium entitled: "New Trends in Macromolecular Plasma Chemistry" as part of the program to be presented at the international POLY MILLENNIAL 2000 Conference. This major conference will be held at the Hilton Waikokola Village resort, December 10-13, 2000 (immediately preceding the year 2000 International Chemical Congress of Pacific Basin Societies in Honolulu, Hawaii).

The plasma chemistry symposium, for which members of the University of Wisconsin Center for Plasma-Aided Manufacturing have agreed to serve as co-chairs, is included with a selected number of symposia in the Poly Millennial 2000 Conference. We feel the inclusion of a Macromolecular Plasma Chemistry Symposium in the program serves as a recognition of the continued important future role plasma studies will play in both organic and inorganic macromolecular chemistry.

The overriding focus of the Symposium will be on recent advances in the field of Macromolecular Plasma-Chemistry taken in a very broad sense, and we intend to consider the following specific topical areas in the future announcement of the Symposium:

·Novel Approaches to Plasma-Enhanced Synthesis of Macromolecular Structures (e.g. composite films);
·Deposition and Etching for Semiconductor Applications;
·In-situ Diagnostic and Modeling of Plasma-Induced Gas-Phase and Surface Chemistries;
·Chemistry Control During Plasma Deposition;
·Plasma-Tailored Surface Characteristics for Molecular recognition;
·Applications of Cold-Plasma Technologies: Present and Future.

Instructions for preparing an abstract for POLY Millennial 2000

A submission form must be completed for each abstract.

Each abstract will be reproduced directly. Editing will not be possible. Therefore, authors have full responsibility for correct design and content. Before submitting an abstract, check format, nomenclature, and spelling. Make sure erasures do not show.

The abstract should be typed single-spaced and left justified on plain, 8.5 in x 11 in (21.6 cm x 27.9 cm) white paper. Top margin is 4 cm. Left and right margins are 3.5 cm. Bottom margin is 3.5 cm or greater. Only black ink should be used.

Abstracts must not exceed one page.

Center title in 14 pt Times New Roman font in bold. Insert a blank line between title and authors. Center authors in 14 pt Times New Roman font with the presenter underlined if there is more than one author. Affiliations of the authors should be in 12 pt. Times New Roman font.

Text should in 12 pt Times New Roman font beginning two spaces below the authors affiliations. Do not indent paragraphs in text.

Symbols, which cannot be typed, should be inserted with black china ink. Ball point pen or pencil will not reproduce clearly.

Figures and tables should have individual captions and be glued directly to the abstract; do not use tape.

Literature citations should appear at the bottom of the abstract.

Do not fold the abstract. Please mail the camera ready abstract unfolded in a strong package to protect against damage.
