Mariakerke, 5 March 2018
From 4th to 7th October 2018, the 50th Conference of the International Circle will be hosted by the Department of Printing Technology, Warsaw University of Technology, Poland. The conference will be coincide with the 50th anniversary celebrations of the education of graphic arts engineers at Warsaw University of Technology and with the 45th Conference of Iarigai. It goes without saying that this edition of our annual conference will be historical and memorable, so do not miss it!
As the abstract submission deadline of 15th March 2018 is nearing, I would like to draw your special attention to two new activities. To start with, for the first time we will also organize a poster exhibition to allow colleagues to present their earlier, on-going, or future research and international co-operation projects during the conference. Not only will this ensure increased visibility and impact of the various projects we undertake; but also facilitate exchange of ideas and co-operation. Additionally, the IC conference will support the participation of young researchers. Three lump sum grants of 1,000 euro each will be allotted to assist in covering the travel and accommodation costs and to permit young research talents to present their thesis findings to the public. Kindly encourage your talented students to apply.
We are also delighted to announce that a new edition of the IC Journal is online and can be consulted on our website. Hard copies of this edition will soon be available and forwarded to you. Thanks to the many authors and our editor, Prof. Dr. Martin Habekost, we are able to issue a scientific magazine filled with high quality articles, year after year. We have some genuinely good reasons to be proud of this.
Finally, our recently launched IC LinkedIn page also deserves our attention and follow-up. This medium is well suited for instant messages and announcements related to our professional context: vacancies, seminars, searches for new project partners, etc. Moreover, it fosters international collaboration and interconnectivity. If you would like to join our network, connect here and you can call yourself a member of our worldwide professional group.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Warsaw later this year,
With my best regards
