Acting in partnership with Vincentz Network, the American Coatings Association is looking for paper submissions for its American Coatings Conference 2018, which will run April 9-11 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The conference itself serves as a technical and scientific forum, where leading industry experts from coating suppliers and manufacturers, as well as universities and government partners, convene.

Companies, as well as academic and/or government research institutes, are invited to submit abstracts that detail high-level contributions, which should indicate advancements relevant to coatings, as well as printing inks, adhesives and sealants.

American Coatings Association

Acting in partnership with Vincentz Network, the ACA is looking for paper submissions for 2018's American Coatings Conference, which will run from April 9-11 in Indianapolis, Indiana. A photo of last year's conference is shown above.

According to the ACA, the conference organizers will select proposed presentations based on scientific significance, as well as novelty and what value the research adds to the industry. Authors who are interested in submitting should clearly indicate how their own research matches the criteria. Students are also encouraged to submit, and will be fully considered.

The American Coatings award will be given to the most outstanding presentation. The recipient will be given $2,500 and a sculpture.

Abstracts should be submitted online at www.american-coatings-show.com/callforpapers by Sept. 27.
