BETHESDA, MD - RadTech International North America is inviting industry professionals to submit an abstract for RadTech UV&EB Technology & Conference 2016, scheduled for May 16-18, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, IL. RadTech’s conference program will feature key areas of interest to the industry.

Those interested in presenting a technical conference paper no longer than 25 minutes in length with five minutes for Q&A at RadTech UV&EB Technology & Conference 2016 should fill out the online Abstract Submission Form prior to September 4, 2015. The description should be sufficiently comprehensive to allow assessment of the scope and content of the paper by the Conference Committee, which will select papers. Speakers will be notified whether or not they have been selected by October 4, 2015. It is expected that a limited number of papers will be selected for the Technical Conference and poster sessions.  Due to the limited available space, prospective presenters should present their papers by the deadline to ensure consideration for presentation or inclusion in the poster sessions. The presentations and poster sessions have equal status and are two different venues for presenting new science and technology.

Speakers will receive an instruction manual providing details to help prepare written and oral presentations as well as audiovisual aids. Speakers will be asked to use terminology consistent with the RadTech UV Glossary when preparing papers. Speaker registration forms will be included in your instruction manual. Speakers may register at 50 percent off the member or non-member registration category.

The deadline for submitting the final paper for publication is February 26, 2016. Speakers agree to submit a written paper to be published in the conference proceedings, as well as develop a Power Point presentation if presenting within a session, in order to be considered for the conference program. Suggested topics for presentations include: LED technology, additive manufacturing/3D printing, advanced materials, formulation, and advances in chemistry, equipment, and testing. A more comprehensive list of topics can be found here.
