Dornbirn Man-made Fibers Congress Celebrates 50 Years
The 50th Dornbirn Man-made Fibers Congress (Dornbirn-MFC) will take place Sept. 14-16, 2011, in
Dornbirn, Austria. In celebration of the event's 50th anniversary, the organizer, the Austrian
Man-made Fibers Institute, will publish a brochure outlining the congress's history and evolution,
founders, long-term supporters and sponsors and others who have been involved over time.
Taking the theme "The next 50 years," the congress will offer a program featuring some 100 lectures including two plenary lectures. There will be a substantial focus on important future developments that will influence society as well as areas of research and desired man-made-fiber properties.
The congress once again will present a forum discussion, which will be held on Thursday, September 15 at 5:35 p.m. so as not to pose a conflict with the scheduled lectures.
