SPE Extrusion Division

What is ANTEC?

Since 1947, ANTEC is The Society of Plastics Engineers' (SPE) Annual Technical Conference. Each Division of SPE accepts abstracts and papers to be reviewed and then presented yearly at ANTEC. Each Division's Board reviews the papers submitted in their area of expertise and scores the paper with a percentage value between 0-100%. As the papers are presented at ANTEC, the audience also has the opportunity to review the paper and assign each a score of 0-100%. These two scores are averaged for a final score. Since 1975, the paper with the highest final score after both reviews is deemed to be the Best Paper for the particular Division's ANTEC showing.

You can view the Extrusion Division ANTEC Paper Index from 1956 - 2004 here.
