Responses to the first Call for Papers for the latest ITA Conference, which was scheduled to take place in Southampton next spring, has shown us that there is lively interest among our colleagues.
Many of those expressing an interest in taking part, however, have asked whether it would be possible for various reasons to stage the conference elsewhere.
After considerable discussion we have decided, given the great success of the ITA Conference 2017, to once more make Düsseldorf the venue for the forthcoming conference. There are a couple of reasons for this:
Düsseldorf is the home of Tube, the industry’s biggest and most important trade fair, and familiar to many of you for this reason.
It has the added advantage of being located in a region that is home to many and diverse industries, which provide us with numerous choices for plant tours. Details of tours will be given at a later date on the website (see below).
In view of the changes, we have extended some of the deadlines:
for abstract submission to November 30, 2018;
for notification of abstract acceptance to December 21, 2018.
The deadline for submission of the final paper remains unchanged.
The ITA Conference 2019 will take place on April 10, 2018, with plant tours on April 11. For further details and to stay informed as arrangements progress, please visit the website, >> www.conference.itatube.org, at regular intervals.
We very much look forward to seeing you there.
