Due to current events:

In view of current developments regarding coronavirus, the IKV decided on 2 March to postpone the International Symposium on Plastics Technology. Instead, the event is being held in a fully digital format on 7 September 2020

All booked participant tickets will remain valid for the alternative dates mentioned. We will keep you informed about all updates on the symposium here on our website.

About the International Symposium on Plastics Technology

Lateral thinkers from all over the world are invited to the International Symposium on Plastics Technology by the IKV on the occasion of its 70th anniversary and the 150th anniversary of the RWTH Aachen University.

The scientific symposium offers those being curious about cutting edge plastics technology an inspiring forum for exchange on research and innovation to discuss urgent questions and latest findings, to network and to experience impulses for the future of plastics technology. It forms a symbiosis with the International Colloquium Plastics Technology, which will take place on 11 and 12 March 2020 for the 30th time and has always been distinguished by its industrial relevance. 

Connecting the Symposium with the International Colloquium Plastics Technology provides a unique opportunity to experience both international scientific perspectives and practice-oriented research in a concentrated and dense manner. Due to the diversity of the events, the symposium and the colloquium can be booked separately; however, participants at both events benefit from reduced-price combined tickets. 

Main topics

  • Circular economy
  • Extrusion
  • Hybrid materials and additive manufacturing
  • Injection moulding
  • Lightweight technologies
  • Simulation and digitisation
