The second annual event, scheduled for March 14 and 15, 2022, in Aachen, Germany, invites abstracts on injection molding, additive manufacturing, recycling, extrusion, and more.

The Institute for Plastics Processing (IKV) has launched a call for papers for the second annual International Symposium on Plastics Technology, scheduled for March 14 and 15, 2022, at RWTH Aachen University in Germany. The event precedes the International Colloquium on Plastics Technology, which is being held for the 31st time, also in Aachen. The deadline to submit abstracts is Sept. 30, 2021.

Jointly organized by IKV and the Polymer Processing Society (PPS), the symposium is designed to offer scientists as well as plastics professionals a forum where they can learn about current research from all parts of the world, network with colleagues, and find inspiration to shape plastics technology in the years ahead.

Abstracts are solicited on the following topics:

  • additive manufacturing 
  • circular economy/recycling 
  • compounding/extrusion/rheology
