Dear interested parties and former participants of the International Munich Paper Symposium.
For the 32nd time, the major annual European conference in paper technology, the IMPS - INTERNATIONAL MUNICH PAPER SYMPOSIUM, is going to take place from March 19 - 21, 2024.
The general theme of the conference is “Progress in Board and Paper Technology” and it supports the exchange of current experiences and expertise in the area of bio-fibre product manufacture. Many of the papers are going to be presented by board mills and paper mills, however, 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, tissue 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 fully booked almost every year since 2013 (not counting the year 2021, when it was cancelled due to COVID-19)!
The conference is bilingual in English and 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.
I would be delighted to greet you at the IMPS-2024.
Prof. Dr. Stephan Kleemann
