Presentation File Submission to TAPPI

Your presentation is subject to peer review and must comply with TAPPI antitrust and commercialism guidelines. Submission guidelines are listed below.  Once approved, your materials will also be included in the Conference proceedings, with your permission.

You may give TAPPI your permission on your submission form in the Speaker Management System.  

Antitrust Guidelines

Attendees at industry events in the US are becoming increasingly sensitive to antitrust compliance at face to face meetings. Therefore, we remind all authors to follow these simplified guidelines in your paper or presentation slides. The full TAPPI antitrust guidelines may be found by clicking here.

 Commercialism Guidelines

Presentations: For presenters from companies, the company name and logo should only appear on the first and last slide.  “Companies” are considered any organization that provides goods or services.  This minimizes the appearance of a sales pitch.   For presenters from universities, government agencies, and research facilities, the organization logo can appear on each slide.


Conference Registration

Please remember you must also register for the conference.   Significantly reduced rates are available to speakers.  Speakers must register by 1 May 2018 to confirm inclusion in the technical program.  If speakers are not registered by this date, their presentation will be pulled from the program.  A reduced conference rate is available for speakers. 

You should also remember to as early as possible; TAPPI's discounted rooms will go fast.
