For the 25th time, one of the major annual European conferences in paper technology, the IMPS 2016 — INTERNATIONAL MUNICH PAPER SYMPOSIUM is going to take place in the modern Sheraton Munich Arabellapark Conference Center from 02-04 March 2016. The Symposium focuses on technical presentations related to paper and board manufacturing and will be offered in the German and English language through a superb simultaneous translation. In addition to the presentations, the IMPS also features an exhibition and a cultural programme.
The theme of the meeting is “Progress in Board and Paper Technology”, and while many of the papers are going to be presented by board mills and paper mills, it will be clear that papermaking equipment and innovations designed to improve the performance of paper, board and printing machines, play a very important role.
Most presentations will deal with first time reports and take an analytical, rather than a commercial approach. The speakers will share their experiences with relatively new systems, and will also take a look at some future developments.
The IMPS has been held annually for more than two decades and is always focused on current topics related to the paper manufacturing and paper supplying industry. In contrast to many very large conferences, the IMPS will host not more than about 400 participants in a first class atmosphere. It is intended to provide an international platform for people working in the field of board, paper and printing technology.
The fee includes a number of options: simultaneous translation German/English, internet access to abstracts, presentations as pdf-files, coffee breaks with snacks, superb lunches as well as a gala dinner on Wednesday evening. As far as places are available, a fascinating cultural event on Thursday evening and an interesting mill tour or a visit to the well known paper institute of Munich University of Applied Sciences on Friday, are also included.
The last three years the IMPS was completely booked out well before the start of the symposium. We therefore recommend that you book early.
