Advanced Plastics as an enabling technology for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0)

On behalf of the International Polymer Processing Society (PPS), the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and the local organizing committee organizing committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to the PPS Europe-Africa 2019 Regional Conference (PPS2019) to be held at the CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa on November 18-21, 2019. The theme of the conference is, “Advanced Plastics as an enabling technology for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0)”

The PPS Meeting is a leading conference on polymer processing and attracts internationally renowned scientists, engineers and designers in the field of polymer research and development. The goals of the Society as embodied in its constitution are to foster scientific understanding and technical innovation in polymer processing by providing a discussion forum for the worldwide community of engineers and scientists in the field. The thematic range of the PPS encompasses all formulation, conversion and shaping operations applied to polymeric systems in the transformation from their monomeric forms to commercial products. An important ingredient for the success of this meeting has been the participation of all professionals in all aspects of Polymer Science and Technology from all around the world at this unique African city of Pretoria.

The scientific program will include lectures by distinguished plenary and invited speakers from all over the World, contributed oral presentations by both senior and younger scientists and engineers as well as oral and poster presentations by young postdoctoral fellows, PhD and master students and engineers working in academia and industry. There will be an effort for the substantial participation of industry since it is our strong belief that the close collaboration between Universities, Research Institutes & Centers and Industry is the key for technological advancement.

We would like to provide your company with the opportunity to promote at the conference by being one of the main sponsors. We have included a breakdown of the various packages that are available.
