Following on from the highly successful first Conference on Nonwovens for High-performance Applications, NHPA 2015 will take place from March 4-5 2015, again in Cannes, France.
The event will bring together senior managerial, technical and marketing staff from nonwovens manufacturers, suppliers to the industry, converters/finishers, product designers and processors, application sector OEMS, researchers and end-users from all around the world to discuss progress and possibilities.
The core of the programme will be presentations by invited experts, but in order to give an opportunity for anyone with exciting and relevant ideas to present to a high-level international audience, a call for papers is being issued for contributions in the following areas, with a focus on innovations and technology ‘game changers’.
Contributions are sought in any relevant area, but the main areas of consideration will be:
- Air and liquid filtration
- Transportation lightweighting
- Infrastructure lightweighting
- Energy storage and generation
- Advanced medical materials
Presentations should take into account that the audience will be senior managerial, technical and marketing staff from nonwovens manufacturers, suppliers to the industry, converters/finishers, product designers and processors, application sector OEMS and end-users.
Selection of the papers to be presented will be based on abstracts up to a maximum of 500 words. Presentations will be 20-25 minutes long.
NHA will not provide speaker expenses or fees and presenters accepted via the call for papers will be responsible for half the regular registration fee.
Submission should be by email to: Adrian Wilson as Conference Chairman, as soon as possible and no later than 30 September 2014.
The abstract must include the name, company or other affiliation, telephone number, e-mail address and mailing address of the speaker and/or the person to whom correspondence about the abstract should be directed. Only one speaker per presentation will be allowed, though co-authors may be listed. The speaker for the paper should be underlined.
