Call for Papers

TCM-Asia is pleased to announce that the 2016 Materials.Trends.Progress Conference will be held in Bangkok, Thailand, from October 18 to 19. In preparation for the event, we would like to issue the following call for papers.

Abstracts for presentations can be submitted via e-mail to office@tcman.at by April 30, 2016. As the conference language will be English, the text of the abstracts should be submitted in English only.

The presentations are to focus on all topics on engineered décor materials, such as

  • Technical and decorative laminates
• Thermoplastic foils
• Coatings
• Veneers

for both indoor and outdoor use.

Presentations dealing with topics related to the industry in general, such as market analyses and trends, new products and applications, raw materials, basic research, manufacturing processes, environmental aspects, design and design trends of final product, wholesale and retail requirements, will also be considered with an eye toward rounding out our conference.

Important Note

The success of a conference depends to a large degree on the quality of the presentations. There is no doubt that marketing interests are a major driving force for giving a presentation at a conference. Still we need to urge you only to submit a paper if it is really intended to meet the strict requirements of a presentation at a technical/scientific conference, in other words, it should report new technical, scientific or commercial data of general interest. Any papers that are submitted and do not meet these requirements will be rejected. Feedback from participants of former conferences has shown that presentations of products and companies are certainly not appreciated by the audience. We hope for your understanding and cooperation.
