Conference timetable (update - 1 August 2011)
Approximately one day will be devoted to each of the three themes of the conference. Already, over 200 people have registered to attend, with 34 invited speakers, 60 people making voluntary presentations and about 25 poster presentations (so far). The preliminary timetable for the conference (shown below) will be revised in light of this, but is likely to include plenary sessions each morning (for keynote and some invited speakers), followed by parallel sessions later in the morning and in the afternoons. The parallel sessions will be led by the invited speakers followed by voluntary presentations. On each day, these sessions will be divided into different aspects of sustainable wood use, including: green building and architecture; designing with wood; wood culture; SME development;wood product marketing; and sustainability of wood supply. A provisional list of the papers that will be presented at the conference is given in the document attached to the bottom of this webpage.
The timetable for conference preparations is as follows:
