demanding products that are smaller, smarter and stronger. In addition,
regulators are setting more stringent controls and standards for materials and
components regarding their safety and environmental impact. These
requirements are creating tough challenges for materials suppliers, designers,
specifiers and processors. It is increasingly important to understand how
materials will behave during processing and how a product will perform when it
is put to use.
testing and analysis techniques for determining such characteristics and
properties will be covered in depth at the conference by an international
selection of speakers, including representatives from leading test
organisations, academic institutions, equipment suppliers, plastics suppliers,

detailed presentations on a wide range of topics, such as the assessment of
polymer stability, mechanical properties, flow characteristics, fire
retardancy emissions, surface quality, and colour control. There will also be

non-destructive testing technologies, and failure analysis. In addition to the
busy programme of presentations from leading players in the market, Polymer
Testing & Analysis 2018 will offer high-level networking opportunities in a

What if I cannot attend an AMI event because of bad weather, industrial action, sickness or bereavement?
Unfortunately AMI cannot take responsibility for such problems. We recommend that you ensure that your travel plans leave you enough spare time to cope with weather delays or industrial action and that your travel insurance policy will recompense you for any financial loss that you suffer as a result of being unable to travel for other reasons. Remember that if you cannot attend an event then you can always send a colleague in your place at no charge.
Do I need a visa to enter a country where AMI is holding an event?
It is entirely possible that you may need a valid visa to enter a country where AMI is holding an event. This is especially the case for individuals attending our events and holding non-European passports. We recommend that at the time of booking you check the visa requirements with the embassy of the host country in your home location. We are unable to give refunds to delegates who cannot attend conferences because they fail the visa requirements of the country concerned.
Does the conference programme ever change?
AMI always does its utmost to avoid changes in advertised conference programmes. However it is a fact of life that from time to time amendments have to be made as a result of changes to speakers’ circumstances or corporate change. Remember that you can always check with our conference staff on the latest status of any conference programme.
Can I give a paper at an AMI Conference?
Naturally AMI welcomes offers of papers for presentation at our conferences provided such papers meet our quality and relevance requirements. Within each conference heading you will find a section on ‘Call for Papers’, which tells you what to do if you want to offer to present a paper at a specific conference.
