Paper abstracts are due February 3, 2014. Submission instructions and guidelines for development of papers and posters can be found on CPI's website, Poster abstracts are due August 22, 2014.

Papers can address innovations and developments involving polyurethane chemistry or uses, including new polyurethane products or applications; raw material or additive innovations; or breakthroughs in equipment design or operation.

Papers and posters also may focus on issues associated with the manufacture, use, handling, transportation, disposal, and end-of-life of polyurethanes, as well as health, environmental and product stewardship issues. Regulatory and legislative topics, code and standard developments are also welcome as paper and poster topics.

Criteria for paper and poster abstracts include originality and relevance of the topic. Paper and poster abstracts will be judged by a panel of technical and industry experts. Paper presentations are judged on both technical merit and the quality and effectiveness of the speaker, and clarity of the presentation. Awards will be presented at the conference in September to recognize outstanding papers and posters in relevant categories, as chosen by conference attendees.
