Chennai to host next IULTCS Congress

Published:  30 November, 2015

As the XXXIII IULTCS International Congress closed on November 27 in Novo Hamburgo, the IULTCS flag was formally handed over to the Indian Leather Technologists’ Association (ILTA) ahead of the next congress.

The XXXIV IULTCS International Congress will take place in Chennai, India on February 5-8, 2017. The dates follow the India International Leather Fair (February 1-3, 2017) and have been chosen to avoid clashing with the Chinese New Year (January 28 – February 3, 2017).

Under the theme “Science and Technology for Sustainability of Leather”, it will be held at the CSIR-Central Leather Research Institute (CSIR-CLRI).

The ILTA has already announced the following dates:

March 1, 2016 – Abstract submission open

October 31, 2016 – Close of abstract submission

November 15, 2016 – Result announcement

November 30, 2016 – Full paper submission

Abstracts and full papers must be submitted in English and will be reviewed by an International Scientific Committee.
