Following the success of last year’s conference, the Wood Technology Society are pleased to announce Timber 2020. This event brings together wood scientists, wood technologists, and businesses from all areas of the timber industry. The primary aim is to showcase the latest developments in timber technologies and research in the UK. Invited speakers and selected presentations will highlight useful opportunities and prompt wide-ranging discussion of new products, processes and concepts and their potential within the UK.
This conference will span all topics related to timber – from the largest structures to the smallest models of the influence of ultrastructure on performance. The organisers seek to balance the fundamental lab and forest-based experiments through to the industrial application and development of new products. Topics will range from preservation to panel products; modified wood to engineered lumber.
