About RETA-IC 2023 Participant Submission

RETA-IC 2023

            The Rubber-Elastomer Technology Association (RETA) will hold the first RETA International Conference (RETA-IC 2023) between March 2nd – 3rd, 2023 at the Pathumwan Princess Hotel, Bangkok. This conference aims at identifying links and creating relationships between researchers from academia and industry to create advances in the science and technology of rubber and elastomers and build cooperation.

            The association recognizes the importance of developing knowledge and creating innovations in rubber and elastomer technology including creating a networks between the academic and industrial. It provides a platform to disseminate the scientific knowledge to the society and enable them to use these research findings in order to develop new technology. The association will invite world-renowned scientists and young scientists with outstanding achievements to be the leading speakers to serve as examples and motivators for the development of research in the country, as well as to create cooperation and the transfer of new technologies to researchers from both academia and industry in the country continuously.

            The RETA-IC 2023 Conference has two important parts; the first part is the presentation of research by guest scientists, lectures by researchers from academia and industry including a presentation of researchers by poster presentation. The second part is the exhibitions featured both engineering and technology from rubber and elastomer industries which is a supporting part of the seminar.
