Information on the International Munich Paper Symposium

This year, the IMPS is once again focusing on developments that optimize paper and board production processes and improve product quality. An unusually large number of reports come directly from paper mills, underlining both the credibility and feasibility of the optimizations presented. The speakers come from various suppliers and the following paper mills: Model, Model Papier Eilenburg, Norske Skog Bruck, Landqart, Progroup, Sappi Maastricht, Munksjö Paper, Sofidel, Mondi, Mondi Frantschach, SAICA, Paper+, Kabel Premium Pulp & Paper, Maxauer Papierfabrik, Smurfit Kappa Roermond Papier, Moritz J. Weig, LEIPA and Klabin.

During the International Munich Paper Symposium (IMPS), participants will have the opportunity to visit various exhibitor areas directly in the center of the conference within the general coffee break area. Each exhibitor will be briefly introduced during the introductory welcome. Further information can then be obtained at the respective exhibition stand.

In addition to the conference and exhibition, the IMPS is an ideal opportunity to get in touch with the students of the international and in Europe unique Master's degree program Paper Technology at Munich University of Applied Sciences, which is taught only in English. The students come from many different countries and the common ground for all of them, apart from the English language, is their interest in technology and the paper and board industry. Approach the more than 30 students present and perhaps you will find your future application engineer or long-sought country-specific sales representative among them.

For future contacts, you can contact Munich University of Applied Sciences at at any time regarding job offers or interesting internships. Further information about the bachelor's degree program, the dual paper technology program in Munich and the master's degree program in paper technology can be found on the Internet at and as well as

In addition to training around 50% of all paper engineers for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the Biofibers and Paper course at Munich University of Applied Sciences is involved in contract studies and research on current topics in biogenic fibre technology and process optimization as part of its affiliated institute IVP (Institut für Verfahrenstechnik Papier) .

I hope you enjoy the exciting, practice-oriented presentations and an interesting exhibition so that you, as a participant, can discuss your own problems with colleagues and make contact with the exhibitors and our many German and international students of paper technology.

One of the many differences between the IMPS and other conferences is that the IMPS does not send out public "calls for papers". The presentations at IMPS are always selected based on the experience and knowledge of the organisers and are about successful first-time installations and ongoing optimisation processes. The focus is particularly on new developments applied for the first time and optimisations of existing units or products. It should primarily deal with technical aspects. If possible, we would also like a paper or board or tissue producer to be an author or co-author. Spontaneous presentation offers are certainly possible and also welcome.
