General information about symposia
- Conferences are free of charge for members of the NVVT and on payment also for non-members. Participants (50 to 100, depending on the topic) are mainly technici¬ans from the paint and printing ink industry, representatives from raw materi¬al suppliers, government and research institutes and other intere¬sted bodies.
- Meetings are normally dedicated to a specific topic; 3 to 4 lectures (half day) or 7 to 8 (whole day) are presented and each lecture is followed by a discus¬sion.
- The basic location for the meetings is in Nieuwegein near Utrecht in the centre of the Netherlands. In case of combined conferences with other societies or foreign associations another location might be chosen.
- Lectures have to be of a good technical level; final acceptance to be decided by the board of the NVVT. Lectures should not be sales presentations; firm and product names should be avoided as much as possible. Lectures have to be presented in English.
