An Appeal to Leather Community  India

Dear Leather Community 

February 5th-8th in the week after the International Indian Leather Fair the XXXIV IULTCS Congress takes place in Chennai hosted by CLRI, one of the biggest Leather Research institutes in the world. Our colleagues from India are already very busy in organizing and preparation of this big event. 
3 days under the slogan "Science and Technology for Sustainability of Leather" chemists and leather technologists from all over the world are getting together to present latest ideas, concepts and projects. Beside the presentation and discussion of  papers even poster sessions will be organized for students and other academics to display their scientific work and results. 
All in all - and I'm 100 % sure in this -  this event will be a another perfect opportunity to exchange and network within our research community. In times like today, where knowledge can be shared electronically in so many different ways I still believe it is upmost important for everyone even to discuss things face to face. Chennai 2017 will provide a perfect opportunity for such exchanges. 
Therefore I will encourage every chemist and technologist in the field of leather to join the 3 days of the XXXIV IULTCS congress, as well as to think about submitting a paper and/or a poster for presentation. 
Best regards
Dietrich Tegtmeyer
