GLEN ELLYN, IL -- The Thermoset Resin Formulators Association (TRFA) has announced that it has started accepting the submission of Technical Papers for presentation at the association's 2011 Annual Meeting to be held September 11 to 13 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

Technical Paper presentations are essential to meeting one of the association's key objectives, which is to be "the premier forum to interact and exchange knowledge among formulators and suppliers." The 2011 Annual Meeting schedule will include at least three technical paper presentations from each of TRFA's Market Focused Product Groups: Coatings, Civil Engineering and Flooring; Adhesives and Sealants; Composites and Tooling; and Potting, Encapsulation and Electrical.

Persons interested in submitting a Technical Paper for consideration should submit a title and abstract. The abstracts must be in English, be less than one typed sheet and include the following information: Name of Author, Job Title, Company, Personal Biography and Contact Information.

In addition to technical presentations, TRFA's 2011 Annual Meeting schedule will include the meetings of its Market Focused Committees, a Regulatory Affairs Update, a Tabletop Showcase, a General Business Session, and the presentation of the association's "Excellence in Thermoset Polymer Research Award," as well as unmatched opportunities for informal networking with industry peers.
