It is an honour and a pleasure for me to invite you to the first IKV International Symposium on Plastics Technology on 10 March 2020 in Aachen. The symposium will bring together scientists and experts from all over the world who are involved in the future of plastics. The symposium will offer an exceptional forum to learn, participate and network with the people who play a leading role in the field of plastics technology. The scientific program will keep you abreast of the latest know-how in polymer science and technology.
With your paper and presentation, you can contribute to enhancing the quality and diversity of the discussions. You should therefore take the opportunity to present your topic to a broad scientific public. The symposium will, without doubt, be a valuable occasion to generate new ideas in the middle of a motivated scientific community.
I look forward to welcoming you in Aachen,
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Hopmann

If your poster or abstract is accepted by the committee, you will receive the request to submit a full paper.
