The final conference program has been published here.

 

Ladies and gentlemen,

You would like to obtain information on the most important trends and current challenges in the wood-based materials industry? You are looking for a forum where you, as manufacturer, supplier or user, can exchange ideas and establish networks during in-depth discussions?

From 10th to 12th October 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research WKI and the European Panel Federation, in co-operation with the International Association for Technical Issues related to Wood and Sasol Wax, are organizing for the eleventh time the European Wood-Based Panel Symposium. For the second time, the wood-based materials industry will meet up at the Grand Elysée Hotel in Hamburg.

We look forward to your participation!

More than 20 top-ranking speakers from economics, science and politics will provide reports on:

  • Raw materials
  • Process technology
  • Furniture application
  • Insulation application
  • International requirements 

Again, a program committee comprised of international experts will examine all the submitted paper proposals and will select the best therefrom as presentations for the Symposium. In order to benefit as extensively as possible from the internationality of the event, the presentations and discussions will be simultaneously translated into German and English.

More than 300 national and international participants are expected to attend. The breaks during the program as well as the two evening events, which are at the invitation of EPF, iVTH and other industrial companies as well as the company SasolWax, will provide the participants with plenty of opportunities for in-depth discussions with one another.

For all matters relating to the Symposium, or if you are interested in supporting the evening event and/or participating in the technical exhibition which will accompany the conference, please contact Simone Peist and Heike Pichlmeier from the local organizing committee at the Fraunhofer WKI direct.
