2nd International Symposium on Plastics Technology

Aachen, Deutschland


2nd International Symposium on Plastics Technology


Das IKV und die PPS – Polymer Processing Society laden am 5. un d 6. September 2022 alle interessierten Vordenker der Kunststofftechnik zum 2nd International Symposium on Plastics Technology nach Aachen ein. Das Symposium bietet Wissenschaftlern, aber auch Anwendern im Bereich der Kunststoffe ein inspirierendes Forum, um aktuelle Forschungsvorhaben aus allen Teilen der Welt kennenzulernen, drängende Fragen und neue wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse zu diskutieren, sich zu vernetzen und Impulse für die zukünftige Gestaltung der Kunststofftechnik mitzunehmen.

Das Programm: Forscher an Universitäten und in den Entwicklungsabteilungen von Industrieunternehmen weltweit haben ihre Beiträge zu den Themenschwerpunkten Additive Fertigung, Kreislaufwirtschaft/Recycling, Leichtbau, Kunststoffindustrie 4.0/Digitalisierung, Spritzgießen sowie Extrusion/Compoundierung/Rheologie eingereicht.

Mit der zeitlichen Kopplung des Symposiums an das Internationale Kolloquium Kunststofftechnik besteht die einzigartige Chance, konzentriert und kompakt sowohl internationale Wissenschaftsperspektiven als auch praxisnahe Forschungsergebnisse zu erleben. Aufgrund der Unterschiedlichkeit der Veranstaltungsformate sind Symposium und Kolloquium jeweils separat buchbar; Teilnehmer an beiden Veranstaltungen profitieren aber von preislich vergünstigten Kombitickets.
