General Assembly and Scientific Webinar on Sept. 22nd

Unfortunately, the annual scientific conference cannot take place in September 2020 due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

According to the laws in Germany IARIGAI has to hold a General Assembly (GA) every year. This year we will organize it as a virtual meeting using the “zoom”-tool on Tuesday, September22nd at 13:00 hrs CET.

At the last meeting, the IARIGAI board has positively discussed a suggestion by Fons Put to accompany the GA with a kind of online seminar where selected paper submissions will get the chance to present their research work in a 15 to 20 min online talk. It cannot replace the conference but it is a nice opportunity to learn about recent findings in Print and Media Technology. The presentations would commence right after the end of the GA (ca. 14:00 hrs CET).

The participation in the webinar is free of charge. If you have not already received the link to join the webinar via zoom, please send an email to
