"These traditional subjects again will include sessions on dry strength new technologies – both natural and synthetic as well as wet strength technology which we’ve had in the past. Additionally, there will be new sessions in which we are focusing on some of the new filler composites and their interaction with other materials. We will also have a diverse session focused on films and coatings this year."  - Scott Rosencrance, Senior Manager, Kemira and Papermaking Additives Chair for 2019
