Authors are invited to submit abstracts of papers for presentation in the Technical Programme. These should be of original and unpublished work. Commercialism in manuscripts, presentations, or visuals will not be permitted. Papers will be allocated to oral and poster sessions by the Technical Programme Committee (TPC), based on authors' wishes, overall evaluation, and limits of the time schedule.

Euro PM2021 planned presentations will be recorded (20 minutes scheduled for each paper) and available online for the whole event. Poster presentations will be in allocated topic zones and will be on display for the duration of the event. The manuscript for all accepted papers should be no more than 6 pages and must be submitted through the online procedure by Wednesday 5 May 2021.

Attendees will be able to connect from all over the world and experience the same high-quality content as an in-person conference via presentations, discussion panels and some Q&A sessions.

The presentations papers from the web event will be published as usual and the proceedings will be available for sale in October as originally planned.

When assessing submitted papers, the TPC will consider:

  • The originality and novelty of the subject
  • Critical study of a process, or a product in the course of development
  • Study of the effects of fundamental scientific results on R&D
  • Description of industrial achievements
  • Technical/economic analysis of processes
  • Comparisons with competitive processes or products

Abstract Submission

Abstracts should be submitted using the online submission form between November 2020 and 20 January 2021. Abstracts must be between 100 and 150 words in length and give sufficient information to allow the TPC to evaluate the proposed presentation.
