An approximate 300-word technical conference abstract summarizing original and previously unpublished work covering case histories, research and discoveries must be submitted. The submission should describe significant results from experiments and case studies, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest and contain appropriate technical test results.
In addition, course proposals are solicited from individuals interested in presenting half-day (three-hour) professional development courses on design, manufacturing processes and materials.
Technical conference paper abstracts are due June 20, 2020 and course proposals are due June 8, 2020. To submit an abstract or course proposal, visit www.ipcapexexpo.org/education/call-for-participation.
