RadTech 2018 Call for Papers

Abstracts Due: September 8, 2017
Final Paper Due: February 23, 2018

RadTech International North America is pleased to invite you to submit an abstract for RadTech UV&EB Technology & Conference 2018, scheduled for May 7-9, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, IL. This is the foremost event for the UV/EB processing industry. As our industry has evolved, so has UV/EB technology grown to meet the new challenges. RADTECH’s conference program will feature key areas of interest to the industry.

Those interested in presenting a technical conference paper no longer than 25 minutes in length with 5 minutes for Q&A at RadTech UV&EB Technology & Conference 2018 should fill out the online Abstract Submission Form prior to SEPTEMBER 8, 2017. Your description should be sufficiently comprehensive to allow assessment of the scope and content of your paper by the Conference Committee. The Conference Committee will select papers and speakers will be notified whether or not they have been selected by OCTOBER 13, 2017. It is expected that a limited number of papers will be selected for TECHNICAL CONFERENCE! Due to the limited space we have available, please submit your paper by the deadline to ensure consideration for the conference.

Speakers will receive an instruction manual providing details to help prepare written and oral presentation as well as audiovisual aids.   Speakers will be asked to use terminology consistent with the RADTECH UV Measurement Glossary when preparing papers. A copy of the Glossary may be found online at: http://www.radtech.org/intro-to-uv-eb/uv-glossary. Speakers may register at 50% off the member or non-member registration category.

The deadline for submitting your final paper for publication is FEBRUARY 23, 2018. Speakers agree to submit a written paper to be published in the conference proceedings, as well as develop a Power Point presentation if presenting within a session, in order to be considered for the conference program.
