SPE-ANTEC® (Annual Technical Conference) is sponsored by the Society of Plastics Engineers and is the leading technical forum for the plastics industry. Held only once a year, it offers plastics professionals multiple original peer-reviewed technical papers.
Plastics industry professionals who submit papers to ANTEC® 2012 have a choice between two tracks: technical or commercial. The technical track includes more traditional ANTEC® papers, which address new technologies and techniques currently in development in the plastics industry. The commercial track is for papers that speak to commercial applications of these technologies and techniques, and can be similar to a case study.
