uv.eb WEST 2015
RadTech International North America’s uv.eb WEST 2015 will be March 10-11 in Redondo Beach, California. The conference will include a suite of educational activities highlighting new initiatives to advance the development of photopolymer resin-based 3D printing. Presentations will include Jason Lopes of Legacy Effects, Brian Adzema from Autodesk and Dr. Mike Idacavage, PL Industries, who also will be previewing his new online 3D printing course, “Basics of UV Curable 3D Printing,” which was developed in partnership with SUNY ESF. Register online by February 27 at uvebwest.com.

SUNY-ESF’s Basics of UV-Curable 3D Printing Online Course
The Radiation Curing Program at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) announces the Basics of UV-Curable 3D Printing short course. Students will learn the language and concepts of UV-curing technology and how it applies to 3D printing, and various modules will provide a broad overview of the science, materials, equipment and processes used in UV-curable 3D printing. Short courses can be completed in four to six hours and can be taken at the student’s pace during a four-week period. Start dates are March 2, April 1 and May 1. In addition to this course, registration is open for four other online courses, including another short course on the principles of energy curing and an advanced graduate-level radiation curing certificate program.

2014 TAGA Annual Technical Conference
The TAGA Technical Conference, which will be March 22-25, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, will focus not only on graphic arts systems, software and technology developments, but also on more traditional areas of press, ink and paper engineering applications. It will feature technical and scientific papers on research straight from the laboratory, the pressroom and software and engineering systems. For more information, visit tagaatc.printing.org.

Photopolymerization Fundamentals 2015
The premier scientific conference for the industry will be held Sept. 13-16, in Boulder, Colorado. Highlights of the event include numerous presentations in an atmosphere that encourages difficult material with unexplained results, a short course featuring four tutorial or review lectures from leaders in the photopolymerization community, as well as a poster session and vendor exhibits. Abstract submissions are due May 1, and early registration for the conference ends June 30. For more information, contact neil.cramer@colorado.edu or visit pfmeeting.org/2015.

RadTech Europe 15
This biennial event will be held Oct. 13-15, at the Clarion Congress Hotel in Prague, Czech Republic. It promises cutting edge presentations covering all aspects of radiation curing technology, from breakthroughs in chemistry to the latest regulatory developments, as well as sessions dedicated to the latest applications, such as 3D printing and packaging, electronics and automotive. The abstract submission deadline has been extended to Feb. 28. For complete details, contact mail@radtech-europe.com. For more information on the conference, visit radtech-europe.com.
