American Coatings Conference 2020 call for papers: “Successful Innovation in Coatings Research”

The American Coatings Association (ACA), in partnership with Vincentz Network (VN), is issuing a Call for Papers to be presented at the American Coatings Conference 2020.

This major technology forum for the coatings industry, which will take place March 31-April 2, 2020 in Indianapolis, is held concurrently with the American Coatings Show.

Following the theme “Successful Innovation in Coatings Research,” the conference will again provide a world-class, technical and scientific platform, rallying leading industry experts from coatings manufacturers, suppliers, universities and government partners across the nation and beyond.

Innovative companies, as well as academic/governmental research institutes, are invited to submit abstracts detailing high-level technical contributions, and presenting research results that highlight advancements important to coatings, as well as printing inks, adhesives and sealants.

The conference organisers will select proposed presentations for the American Coatings Conference based on the following criteria: scientific significance, novelty and potential value added to the industry.

Prospective authors are strongly encouraged to clearly state in their abstract the research’s unique contribution as it aligns with these criteria.

Student research is encouraged and submitted abstracts will be fully considered.

The most outstanding coatings presentation will be honoured with the American Coatings Award, which will be selected and sponsored by ACA and Vincentz Network.

The recipient of this prestigious award will receive US$2500 and an attractive sculpture.

Abstracts should be submitted online at by September 27, 2019.
