International Munich Paper Symposium – 2017

Logo IMPS-2017

For the 26th time, one of the major annual European conferences in paper technology, the IMPS 2017 -- INTERNATIONAL MUNICH PAPER SYMPOSIUM is going to take place in the modern Sheraton Munich Arabellapark Conference Center from 22-24 March 2017. The Symposium focuses on technical presentations related to paper and board manufacturing and is offered in both the German and English language through a superb simultaneous translation. In addition to the presentations, the IMPS also features an exhibition and a cultural programme.

The theme of the meeting is “Progress in Board and Paper Technology”, and while many of the papers will be presented by board mills and paper mills, it is clear that papermaking equipment and innovations designed to improve the performance of tissue, paper, board and printing machines, played a very important role.

Most presentations deal with first time reports and take an analytical, rather than a commercial approach. The speakers share their experiences with relatively new systems and also take a look at some future developments.

The IMPS has been held annually for more than two decades and is always focused on current topics related to the paper manufacturing and paper supplying industry. In contrast to many very large conferences, the IMPS will host not more than about 400 participants in a first class atmosphere. It is intended to provide an international platform for people working in the field of board, paper, tissue and printing technology.

The fee includes a number of options: simultaneous translation German/English, internet access to abstracts, presentations as pdf-files, coffee breaks with snacks, superb lunches as well as a gala dinner on Wednesday evening. As far as places are available, a fascinating cultural event on Thursday evening and an interesting mill tour or a visit to the well known paper institute of Munich University of Applied Sciences on Friday, are also included.

The last four years the IMPS was completely booked out well before the start of the symposium. We therefore recommend to register your participation early.
