On May 17th, the 26th Annual Conference on Recent Advances in Flame Retardancy of Polymeric Materials will welcome scientific and technical specialists to the premier fire retardant event in the industry. Scheduled at the Sheraton Stamford Hotel (Connecticut) May 17-20, the conference not only provides participants cutting-edge information about recent innovations in the industry, but also terrific networking opportunities with world-class experts and fellow professionals.
The conference kicks off on Sunday, May 17th, with a one-day Short Course that will acquaint industry newcomers with the evaluation and commercial applications of flame retardants. The main conference from May 18-20 will feature experts from around the globe who will share their latest research on topics such as foams and fabrics, nanocomposites, and new technology. Evening receptions on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday will offer attendees additional networking opportunities during this vibrant four-day learning experience.
Prominent speakers at this year’s highly anticipated event include Charles Wilkie, (conference chairman, Marquette University), Dr. Matthew S. Blais (Fire Technology Department, Southwest Texas Research Institute) and Marshall Moore (Great Lakes Solutions). Overall, more than 40 informative sessions will offer a breadth of topics and industries that strike a balance between academia and industry, including “Material Selection Influence on the Flammability of Upholstered Furniture,” “Reformulating Targeted Materials: How This Impacts Aerospace OEMs”, and “Comparative Burn of Flat Panel Televisions from United States, Mexican and Brazilian Markets.”
Professor Jaime C. Grunlan appreciated last year’s conference so much, he’s back this year. “Flame 2014 was the most technically strong topical conference I attended last year,” he says. “The networking was great and everything was very well-organized. If you want to know about the latest breakthroughs in flame retardant research, Flame 2015 is the conference to attend.”
We hope to see you there!
