Victoria University extends an invitation to the international packaging community for the 19th IAPRI World Conference on Packaging.


Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to have the opportunity to invite the international community to Victoria University in Melbourne for the 19th IAPRI (International Association of Packaging Research Institutes) World Conference on Packaging, to be held from 15-18 June, 2014.

The conference is organised by the Engineered Packaging and Distribution Research Group at Victoria University and supported by the College of Engineering and Science and the Office for Research.

The IAPRI conference has become a very prestigious forum where leading researchers and global experts gather to share their research findings in the field of packaging, distribution and logistics.

IAPRI is the global peak body for packaging research, and is responsible for fostering the exchange of research initiatives by more than 1,000 experts from 80 packaging research institutes. IAPRI conferences attract approximately 200 delegates, with over 100 scientific papers presented.

The IAPRI 2014 World Conference on Packaging will be held at the Flinders Street Campus of Victoria University in the heart of Melbourne, Australia. Victoria University is privileged to host this well established international conference series for the second time.

We welcome you to share your research while experiencing the unique and evolving city that is Melbourne - a city where modern architecture and design is juxtaposed with heritage buildings reflecting Australia's cultural history. 

On behalf of Victoria University and the Organising Committee, we welcome you to IAPRI 2014, Melbourne.
