International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference (PBS) 2018 Call for Papers

The biennial International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference (PBS) will take place alongside our exhibition on April 24-26, 2018 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers to encourage sharing and collaboration on the core tools and solutions in transport and delivery systems specific to powder and bulk solids goods. Thought leaders from around the world can submit original papers that have never been presented to earn a speaking opportunity at this premier industry forum.

Who should submit papers to PBS 2018:

  • Experienced and well-known suppliers, academics, researchers, regulatory professionals, consultants, manufacturers, and senior engineering professionals
  • Innovators and implementers of bulk solids materials, equipment, and technologies
  • Innovative companies supporting the powder and bulk solids industry

Powder & Bulk Solids 2018 will accept submissions in the following categories:

The abstract submission should translate into a technical training, case study, or interactive workshop. Each session will be allotted 1.5 hours, so please plan your content accordingly. If you have enough content to fill two sessions, please indicate the break in your content with a “Part A” and “Part B.” Please limit your abstract to 100 words, and identify three clear learning objectives in your proposal – this is very important for the review process.

Submission Due Date:

The deadline for abstract submission is 5:00 PM PST October 19, 2017. The PBS 2018 Advisory Committee will notify individuals with abstracts that have been selected for inclusion in the Conference program.
