For the 29th time, the major annual European conference in paper technology, the IMPS - INTERNATIONAL MUNICH PAPER SYMPOSIUM, is going to take place in the modern Sheraton Munich Arabellapark Conference Center from March 18 - 20, 2020.
The theme of the meeting is “Progress in Board and Paper Technology”, and while many of the papers are going to 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, play a very important role.
The symposium is a technical conference and always focused on topics related to the paper and board manufacturing and supply industry, with an unusually high number of field reports from the mills. It is intended to provide an international platform for people working in the field of board, paper and printing technology.
In contrast to many larger conferences, the IMPS intentionally hosts no more than about 400 participants in order to maintain the personal first class atmosphere. With over a quarter century of success in knowledge transfer, the International Munich Paper Symposium is one of the most significant international technical conferences for the paper, board and tissue industry in central Europe. The symposium has been completely booked up every year since 2013! The conference is bilingual (English & German) with superb simultaneous translation. In this way the conference offers its participants an ideal platform for discussions and encounters among international producers, suppliers and developers.
The symposium offers always a full programme including the following: internet access to abstracts, printed proceedings, a digital release of the abstracts, presentations and proceedings, head-phones for the simultaneous translation, snacks and drinks during the breaks, superb lunches as well as a gala dinner on Wednesday evening. As far as places are available, it also includes 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.
