Abstracts must be submitted before February 28, 2022. The congress itself is due to take place in Vicenza, in September 2022.

The conference will revolve around four key topics as part of its theme, titled Rinascimento: The Next Leather Generation. These are:

  • Product innovation
  • Innovation of processes
  • New approaches for the development of standardised methods
  • News about environmental developments.

Interested parties are invited to send an abstract and a presentation of their work to the organising committee via the event portal at www.iultcs2022italy.org.
