The Tire Society meets in Akron.

The Tire Society's 25th Annual Conference on Tire Science and Technology will take place September 11-12 at the Radisson Hotel in Akron, OH. This international conference provides a venue for reviewing recent advances in the science and technology of tires. The conference is attended annually by some 200 engineers and scientists from the world's tire and vehicle industries, academia and government.

The keynote address will be presented by Francesco Gori, chairman and managing director of Pirelli Pneumatici SpA. The plenary lecture will be given by Thomas D. Gillespie, a research professor at the University of Michigan. And the awards banquet speaker will be Neal Lackritz, team leader for the Bose suspension system.

ITEC 2006 focuses on tire technology

ITEC 2006, sponsored by Rubber & Plastics News, will be held September 12-14 at the John S. Knight Center in Akron, OH.

ITEC 2006 will address data-based approaching paradigm shifts that can offer the tire industry major business and performance opportunities. The program will offer an opportunity to debate ideas and data that can be the basis for future tire consumption, performance and safety increases.

The keynote address will be presented by Maurizio Boiocchi, global director of research and development for Pirelli Pneumatici SpA.

ITEC organizers have dedicated an entire afternoon to in-depth presentations on the state of the Chinese, Indian and Pakistan tire industries.

ITEC 2006 will include 60 technical paper presentatons, as well as over 100 exhibitors.

Scheduled technical presentations will include the following: The single test solution for rubber mixing in the tire industry; Silanes in tires; Global trends in tire raw materials: Natural and synthetic rubber; Extended mobility--Continental's new sealant kit; Comparison of and issues between the SAE rolling resistance test--recommended practices; Low profile tire curing bladders, reduced curing defects; Irregular tread wear rate over internal separations; Performance enhancement in rubber by modern filler systems; Processing of a new rubber silane; A highly processible low unsaturated EPDM for inner tube applications; and Setting the standard for in-process compound liners and component separators.

Full conference registration for tire manufacturers is $495, and for all others is $600. Further information is available from Harold Herzlich (702) 254-2030; email:
