NEW: The paper submission is open by Februar 29, 2020.

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 30th September to 2nd October 2020, 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 SasolWax, are organizing for the twelfth time the European Wood-based Panel Symposium. For the third time, the wood-based panel industry will meet up at the Grand Elysée Hotel in Hamburg.

We look forward to your participation!

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. This time the organizers will allow more room for networking by extending the breaks and specializing the evening events.

You can register for our newsletter - free of charge and without obligation - by clicking the button shown on the left (pre-registration). This provides you with exclusive access to the latest information concerning the Symposium, such as the call for papers, registration deadlines and much more.
