Call for Papers: Current Progresses in Rubber Technology

The following update affects the upcoming Special Issue of Journal of Rubber Research, previously planned to be dedicated to selected papers from the conference ‘International Symposium of Polymeric Materials’ (ISPM 2020), and entitled “Current Progresses in Rubber Technology”.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, ‘International Symposium of Polymeric Materials’ has been postponed to 2022 (ISPM 2022). Going forward, the Special Issue “Current Progresses in Rubber Technology” will be published as a stand-alone collection.

Previously scheduled to take place in September 2020, the new tentative dates for the conference are 8th – 11th September 2022. The event is still planned to take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and a new as-yet-untitled conference Special Issue will be published tentatively in 2023.

Journal of Rubber Research is proud to publish articles that add to the corpus of scientific knowledge on this subject. We are now pleased to present an open call for papers on this theme of “Current Progresses in Rubber Technology”, with an emphasis on materials, composites and technology.
