IULTCS extend abstract submission deadline again

Published:  17 April, 2015

The deadline for submission of abstracts for the world’s largest leather scientific congress, the XXXIII IULTCS Congress (International Union of Leather Technologists and Chemists Societies) once again to May 10. Academic submissions should address subjects linked to innovation and sustainability within the leather production chain say the event organisers, ABQTIC.

The thirty-third edition of IULTCS Congress takes place in Novo Hamburgo, Rio Grande do Sul, November 24- 27. Organised by ABQTIC (the Brazilian Association of Leather Industry Technologists and Chemists), this year’s event looks forward to the participation of industry representatives, academic experts and students from over 25 countries. "We have extended the deadline due to high demand. In the academic world, there’s a lot being produced in terms of leather, and people are willing to share their work. It is something that meets the congress’ objective, which is to serve as a moment of information and updating", says Etevaldo Zilli, Executive Director of ABQTIC.

In addition, to the IULTCS congress, the XIX FLAQTIC Congress (the Latin American Federation of Leather Industry Chemists and Technologists Associations) and the XXI ABQTIC National Meeting will also take place.
