The Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) in Industry and the Skilled Crafts at RWTH Aachen University will stage its 29th International Colloquium Plastics Technology in Aachen on 28 February and 1 March 2018. The Institute again expects around 800 experts from the global plastics industry to attend the event, which takes place every two years. In 2016, the delegates came from more than 300 companies and 15 nations. All the papers will be translated simultaneously into English.

Research at IKV is currently oriented to four main topics: Additive Manufacturing, Plastics Industry 4.0, Lightweight Construction and Integrative Plastics Technology. In 18 sessions IKV's scientific assistants will give 36 presentations about the latest research at the Institute on these topics. Well-known experts from industry will give keynote speeches that lead into the Colloquium's 18 sessions. They will also present their positions and will comment on the research results. The program will be rounded off by four plenary lectures from industry and research on trends and future developments.

The event will take place on 28 February and 1 March 2018, in Aachen, Germany.
