ETTC 2018
The next ETCC 2018 congress will be in Amsterdam on June 26-29 2018 in the Beurs van Berlage in the centre of the capital of the Netherlands. The ETCC Congress will be combined with the CoSI 2018 conference, to prevent overlap and interference, and to obtain an optimal symbiosis of paint and coating technology and science. The other co-organizers are FATIPEC and OCCA.
There will be 108 lectures, including 16 Key-note speakers and 50 posters. Three plenary lectures will be presented by prominent coating experts. Before the congress 3 parallel workshops are planned about functional coatings, film formation of waterborne coatings and life cycle analyses. More than 400 participants are expected to join. More information on www.ETTC2018.org.

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.
