FINLAND - GPD 2009 Issues Call for Papers

Organizers of Glass Performance Days (GPD) 2009 are preparing for the 2009 event, June 12-15 in Tampere, Finland, by issuing a call for papers.

Show organizers aim to address a variety of topics related to architectural glass, with a focus on saving energy. They aim to include papers on energy performance in buildings, glass and solar technology and novel products used for these purposes. Tracks will also include information on processing glass, regarding coating large areas, pre-processing challenges and alternative materials and methods for lamination. The conference will also include information on automotive glass and changing markets for glass products. Members of the industry are encouraged to share their experience by submitting case studies in these topics as well.

While show organizers recommend submitting an abstract as early as possible in order to make sure that the paper gets full attention, the final deadline for abstract submission is October 10, 2008.
