The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) has opened the gates and papers now can be submitted for its ANTEC 2011. The big, long-running plastics technical conference will be held in Boston, MA on May 1-5, 2011.
First things first: the deadline for abstracts of papers is November 19, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, which only seems like a long way off to those who have not prepared papers before. The format can be technical or commercial and the style can be interactive (poster) or podium.
The overall program is broken into groups that include extrusion, injection molding, composites, engineering properties and structure, polymer nanotechnology, product design and development, and bioplastics. You are invited to show the plastics world your brilliance in any or all of those areas.
