These presenters will be joined by specialists, academics and industry pioneers from Edinburgh University, TRADA, Buro Happold, Ramboll and Ecological Building Systems – leading offsite expert,

Darren Richards, Managing Director for Cogent Consulting will chair the Solid Wood Solutions conference and exhibition.

"Whether creating designer elements for defining high-quality architecture such as the Warner Stand at Lords Cricket Ground or focusing on the realisation of contemporary and sustainable buildings – wood as a natural raw material has established its position and is currently undergoing a revival quite unlike any other," say the organisers.

"Continuous technical developments and the need for sustainable management of our resources are further reasons why solid wood solutions such as cross laminated timber, laminated veneer lumber and glue laminated timber – are proving to be the material of choice for the 21st century."

The 66th International Softwood Conference will be held on 10-12 October 2018 in the largest city in the Baltics – Riga, Latvia.

The event is hosted by the Latvian Timber Traders & Producers Association, the European Timber Trade Federation (ETTF) and the European Organization of the Sawmill Industry (EOS).

This year, the ISC will offer two-day pre-tour at 9th and 10th of October as a choice of option with the great opportunity to visit sawmills with local capital and Group sawmill enterprises with international approach, and we would like to stress out forest resource topic by opportunity to visit corporate and governmental Nurseries.

As per tradition, the conference will be anticipated by a cocktail reception in the early evening on the 10th October at The Riga Latvian Society house, then conference will officially start at 9 o’clock the following morning at headquarters hotel – Radisson Blu Latvija. And after a full day of work we will be able to enjoy marvellous Gala Dinner together with our partners and colleagues at Blackheads House.

The conference will provide market analysis from the perspective of top-class international speakers. The presentations will be focused on facts and figures showing softwood production as well as consumption in the most relevant timber markets such as USA, UK, Canada, North Africa and Egypt, Russia, France, Japan and China.

The event will include an insight view of Confederation of European forest owners on resources with participation of PEFC and FSC certification system representatives, what will be one of the most interesting points of panel discussion of this year’s ISC.

IOM3 'Timber 2018' Conference | 26-27 June 2018 | London

On 26 and 27 June 2018 the Wood Technology Society of the Institute for Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) will hold its 'Timber 2018' conference presenting the latest trends and emerging research in timber, wood science and related fields.

The event - to take place at IOM3 headquarters in London - aims to bring together wood scientists, technologists, and businesses from all areas of the timber industry. Topics will range from preservation to panel products and from modified wood to engineered timber. There will also be room for insights on nano-scale researches and industrial application and development of new products.

"It has been ten years since the last Institute of Wood Science conference in Bath in 2008," say the Organisers in a press release. "During this time the timber industry has recovered from recession; seen growth in modified woods, wood plastic composites and CLT; adapted to the restriction of CCA and many other preservatives and marvelled at the advent of tall timber buildings. Meanwhile researchers have been developing new testing techniques; advanced models of cell wall structure and mechanics; grading models for British species and new biobased adhesives, among others."

"It is high time for a conference to bring these many areas of timber research under one roof to share information and ideas. This new format conference will span all topics related to timber, ranging from the fundamental experiments understanding the nano-scale through to the industrial application and development of new products."

The Wood Technology Society has also launched a Call for Papers. The event will provide a forum to present academic and industrial research in timber.  Abstracts of up to 600 words for both oral and poster presentations are requested by 16th February 2018.
