SPE’s ANTEC 2013 Offering New Technology Forums


NEWTOWN, CT | Three New Technology Forums at the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) ANTEC 2013 conference, scheduled for April 22–24 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, OH. The forums reportedly will provide insights on bringing innovations to market, explore unique polymers with built-in capabilities for responding to their environment, and present new developments in medical materials.

A New Technology Forum will take place on each day of the conference:

• Managing Innovation (Monday April 22): Four presentations will discuss sustainability and innovation, intellectual property considerations, stimulating innovation, and “innovation on demand.”

• Smart Polymers (Tuesday April 23): Five presentations will explore “materials that respond to their environment on their own in a predictable manner.” Topics will include shape memory polymers, structurally dynamic polymers that exhibit macroscopic responses to environmental stimuli, electroactive polymers, and chromogenic materials whose responses to external stimuli have potential for applications as sensors.

• Polymer Applications in Health (Wednesday April 24): Six presentations will cover bioabsorbable polymers, electrospun nanofibers, polymers in drug-eluding stents, value-driven engineering and its relationship to US competitiveness, and global regulatory guidelines.

Co-located with ANTEC 2013 will be a large trade show as well as the “Business of Plastics Conference,” focusing on current issues affecting business strategy and produced by SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Assn.
