March 15 is the deadline for submitting technical presentation requests and abstracts for the May 23, 2013 PFA Technical Program.
PFA welcomes technical papers summarizing recent research and commercial product developments related to the processing of flexible polyurethane foam, innovations in formulation, and foam production technology. The Association also encourages papers on product sustainability and environmental issues that may affect flexible polyurethane foam production or specification.
Papers must have a non-sales focus and specifically address topics related to slabstock or molded flexible polyurethane foam production in the Americas.
A maximum of eight presentations, each 30 minutes in length, will be selected for the May meeting. Please submit a short summary (abstract) of the intended content with your request to make a presentation. Please send your request with abstract no later than March 15, 2013 to Bob Luedeka (email@example.com).
Based on a program that includes at least 6 technical papers, the presentations will be scored to compete for a $500 Technical Excellence Award provided by the Herman Stone Family Endowment.
Those submitting abstracts agree to provide a written paper and slide file in addition to making a presentation during the May 23 Technical Program at the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel.
