Cover: The 5th International Symposium “Molecular Mobility and Order in Polymer Systems” was held in June 2005 as part of the series of St. Petersburg IUPAC meetings organized by the Institute of Macromolecular Compounds of the Russian Academy of Sciences. These meetings are the most important international gathering of polymer scientists in Russia. Main attention was paid to problems of structure and dynamics of polymer systems which combine order and pronounced molecular mobility, i.e., systems with so-called “soft” order. The figure shows a snapshot depicting the diamond lattice topology of the polyelectrolyte network (see article by B. A. Mann, K. Kremer, C. Holm).
