Papers and posters to be presented at the Polyurethanes 2011 Technical Conference, held on September 26-28, 2011
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE - March 3, 2011 - The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI), of the American Chemistry Council, has issued a call for papers and posters to be presented at the Polyurethanes 2011 Technical Conference, held on September 26-28, 2011, at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, TN. Paper abstracts are due March 18, 2011. Poster abstracts will be accepted until August 22, 2011. Submission instructions and paper guidelines can be found on CPI’s Website, www.americanchemistry.com/polyurethane.
The Polyurethanes 2011 Technical Conference provides an opportunity to reach an audience of more than 1,000 manufacturers and processors of polyurethane-based products across all industrial sectors. Papers and posters may address innovations and developments in any polyurethane area, including flexible slabstock, flexible molded, rigid foam, soy-based polyols, polyurethane waterborne dispersions, equipment/machinery, cast elastomers, thermoplastic polyurethanes, integral skin, Reaction Injection Molding (RIM), binders/fillers, coatings, adhesives, sealants and more.
CPI also encourages paper and poster submissions on breakthrough technology and innovations in polyurethane markets or chemistry, developing markets such as medical and fiberboard, and product areas such as rigid foam insulation or coatings. Presentation submissions also may focus on issues such as combustibility, transportation, recreation, security, as well as environmental and stewardship issues, including emissions, regulatory developments, waste management and related topics. The highly successful Polyurethanes 2009 Technical Conference saw 20 authors receive awards at the conference for their papers and posters, as judged by their peers.
UPDATE: MARCH 10, 2011 -- Abstracts due March 31 for the conference in Nashville this September
WASHINGTON, D.C.
