As a member of the International Association of Packaging Research Institutes (IAPRI), you will have the opportunity to share your research and learn about exciting developments from experts from all over the World on how research and innovations performed by IAPRI members helps to unlock the full potential of packaging, providing benefits across the entire value-chain. 
As in the past years, papers can be submitted through the peer-reviewed and general streams. Papers submitted through the general steam will be published in the conference proceedings, and paper submitted through the peer review stream will be published in Packaging Technology and Science, respecting the journal’s editorial policy.

The venue for the 28th IAPRI symposium will be the prestigious Olympic Museum, situated in Lausanne on the shores of Lake Geneva, 45 minutes away from Geneva International Airport by train.

During these 4 days the organizers have prepared networking activites for you to attend in several memorable locations in and around the largest city of the Canton of Vaud.

We have scheduled the symposium to occur directly after Interpack (4th to 10th of May 2017), which will be held in Düsseldorf, Germany so that delegates from abroad can get benefits from attending both events in one trip. Flight time from Düsseldorf to Geneva International Airport is just over an hour.
