Do you want to present your ground-breaking research on coating, printing and converting? Do you have an interest in novel materials, methods, or applications in the area of coatings for graphic/ electronic printing, smart and sustainable packaging, and barrier (oil and grease resistance, gas, water and water vapour) materials?
TAPPI is offering a forum for researchers and coating technologists to present their findings concerning coating fundamentals and leading edge developments relating to paper surface treatment, printing operations and functional coatings.
TAPPI’s 16th Advanced Coating Symposium will be held October 13-15, 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland. Students and industrial professionals performing or interested in cutting edge research will have an opportunity for a tour and demonstration of the pilot curtain coater at Trinseo. This will be just one of many opportunities for expanded learning and networking.
Abstracts are now being accepted for consideration. Accepted abstracts will be invited to produce an extended abstract of 3-4 pages along with a Power Point presentation to be included in the conference proceedings. All abstract and presentations will be peer reviewed.
