Call for Participation: 2014 Technology Showcase

In conjunction with the Annual Scientific Meeting

December 11, 2014 — 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
December 12, 2014 — 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
The New York Hilton & Towers Hotel, New York City

Our members have a continual need to maintain their current awareness of new materials, emerging technologies, innovative services, and state-of-the-art equipment in their pursuit of developing tomorrow’s cosmetic and OTC products.

The Technology Showcase was begun to provide a forum for the chemists and scientists of suppliers and contract laboratories serving the personal care industry to present their most recent developments in a poster format. This Showcase, which runs for two days, combines the details of a scientific poster session with the pragmatic directness of a commercial exhibit (trade names, demonstration prototypes, and supportive literature presented). This venue as a part of the Society’s Annual Scientific Meeting enables it to be an effective information medium for cosmetic scientists.

Participants are invited to present their information in a poster format (4′ x 8′) to include experimental data, graphs, illustrations/photos, and prototypes on the technical attributes of the featured product or technology. Complete trade names as well as the INCI nomenclature is requested for ingredients.

Companies wishing to participate are to submit an abstract of approximately 150-200 words of their intended presentation to the Committee on Scientific Affairs (COSA) on or before September 15, 2014. Abstract Cover Sheets can be found here.

The abstract and cover sheet should be emailed to Abstracts must be in a Word Document format only. Abstracts will be reviewed on a “first come-first serve” basis as the Technology Showcase is limited to the number of posters allowed. There is a flat fee is $1,200.00 per poster. The fee does not include any Meeting Registrations per poster. Company representatives will be required to register for the Annual Meeting. Notification of acceptance will be made by October 20, 2014 and payment must be made in full by November 26, 2014.
