Abstracts and papers

Submissions should not be under review or published elsewhere prior to the conference. No more than two papers per registration will be accepted: one for oral presentation and one for poster presentation. The IAPRI 2024 Conference offers two streams for paper submissions: general and peer review.

General stream
Abstract submissions approved by the IAPRI 2024 Scientific Committee will result in the authors preparing full papers for the conference for either oral or poster presentation. Full papers will be published in the conference proceedings (with ISBN). Abstracts submitted to the general stream will be reviewed by selected members of the IAPRI 2024 Scientific Committee based on originality, scientific quality, innovation, and significance to the research community. The committee will accommodate as many oral presentations as the conference schedule permits.

Peer review stream
Completed (full paper) manuscripts submitted for the peer review stream will be reviewed by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.'s publication Packaging Technology & Science. Papers which are submitted for this option are subject to separate timetable that allows for the longer time involved in the review process.
