International Paper and Coating Chemistry Symposium in Sweden

Paper and Coating Chemistry Conference

The 8th International Paper and Coating Chemistry Symposium will be arranged in Stockholm, June 10-14, 2012. Previous symposiums have been held in Stockholm 1988, 1992, 2000 and 2006, in Ottawa 1996 and in Montreal 2003 and 2009. The 2012 symposium will be organised by Innventia and KTH.

Scope of the Symposium

The 8th International Paper and Coating Chemistry Symposium will cover the latest developments in the fields of paper chemistry, coating chemistry and nanotechnology for the paper industry. The scope of the symposium will be to discuss the performance of chemical additives in papermaking and coating operations. Both fundamental and more applied contributions are welcome.

Tentative topics are listed below. There will be at least one invited overview lecture for most of the topics. Some of these may have a more futuristic character, which in a sense can add to the flavour of the symposium.
