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 2015 Conference offers two streams for paper submissions: general and peer review.
General stream

Abstract submissions approved by the IAPRI 2014 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 2015 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 Wiley's Journal of Packaging Technology and Science. Successful submissions will be published in a special issue of Packaging Technology and Science and will be presented as oral presentations at the conference.

Conference proceedings will contain only the abstract of papers accepted via the peer review stream. Papers not accepted by Wiley's Journal of Packaging Technology and Science for peer review will automatically enter the general stream, unless author specifically denies it in advance.
