KHK 2016 Announcement

This will be the twelth conference on rubber technology in this series. The previous conferences were highly successful and attracted delegates from a variety of disciplines from around the world. Delegates are encouraged to register both from outside and within Germany.

Especially young scientists are very welcome to contact industrial partners, which are invited to offer new jobs. A service point will be organized by DIK.

Conference objectives

The conference will highlight the latest and most important scientific concepts and advanced processing techniques in rubber and polymer science and technology. Experts from all over the world will give keynote presentations. Recognized industrial experts will identify future trends in the rubber industry. Basic researchers will share the studies that have been to understand and, therefore, predict the properties of final products. The poster session is an additional good opportunity for scientific discussions and knowledge exchange.
