About the Symposium

Lateral thinkers from all over the world are invited to the 2nd International Symposium on Plastics Technology by IKV and PPS - Polymer Processing Society. The scientific symposium will take place in Aachen from 5 to 6 September 2022. It 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 in 2022 for the 31st time and has always been distinguished by its industrial relevance. 

International scientific perspectives and practice-oriented research results

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.

Researchers at universities and in the development departments of industrial companies worldwide were invited to submit their contributions on the topics of additive manufacturing, circular economy/recycling, lightweight technology, plastics industry 4.0/digitisation, injection moulding and extrusion/compounding/rheology to shape the Symposium programme. The visitors can once again expect an extremely diverse lecture programme with scientific contributions from all over the world. All contributions will go through a review process beforehand, in which a broadly diversified and internationally staffed Scientific Committee will ensure that the content and methods presented meet high scientific quality standards.

We are looking forward to an inspiring event - we cordially invite you to experience the 2nd Symposium on Plastics Technology and to enter into an intensive discourse together!
