Submission criteria

The criteria for selection of papers will include:

• Contribution to industry knowledge base - is this truly a significant advance?

• Timely and relevant topic - does the presentation address current or developing concerns among polyurethane industry professionals?

• Value - will the paper highlight real progress with long-term benefits?

• Objective – does the proposed speech offer a balanced and non-commercial perspective?

• Originality

Speech proposals that offer significant evidence-based developments in these respects have a far higher chance of being selected for inclusion on the programme. Speech proposals covering purely historical ground, with an overly narrow focus and those that are deemed too sales-driven in approach are likely to be rejected.

*The deadline to submit your abstract is 31st May 2024
