ASPT2015 hosted by the Japanese Society of Printing Science and Technology (JSPST)

Welcome to ASPT2015

We are pleased to announce that THE 2015 ASIAN SYMPOSIUM ON PRINTING TECHNOLOGY (ASPT2015) will be held in Tokyo, on September 15 -16. The theme of this year is "Progress of Printing Science and Technology for a Sustainable Global Society". The symposium is expected to provide researchers and engineers involved in printing industry with an opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss what we should do to build a sustainable society. The symposium will cover the following topics: eco-friendly printing technologies such as waterless printing, UV printing, and digital printing, energy saving printing equipment and materials, efficient manufacturing process, technology to reduce discharge of harmful substances, electronic books, and cross-media applications. We will invite researchers and technical experts from Asian countries who are active in related fields as keynote speakers. In addition, oral and poster presentations will be given for more technical information and discussion. Participants are sure to be able to look towards the future of printing and related industry. We look forward to having participants from all over Asia in such an informative symposium in IGAS 2015, one of the world's four major printing machinery and applications shows.
