Oral Presentations

A 20 minute timeslot has been allocated for oral presentations, with the exception of keynote speakers (40 minutes) and the review papers in the dissemination sessions (30 minutes). This includes time for any questions and discussion. So speakers should plan their presentations accordingly. A laptop with MS PowerPoint will be provided and speakers should ensure that they load their presentation well in advance of their timeslot and check that it is displaying correctly - assistance will be available to help with this.

Poster Presentations

Poster boards will be provided with sufficient space to display posters in Portrait orientation with maximum dimensions of 900mm x 1200mm. The presenters of posters have each been allocated a timeslot of 3 minutes to give a brief overview of their topic - this can include 2 or 3 PowerPoint slides if desired, but please make sure you plan within the timeslot allocated.

Objectives

undefinedAnnouncement Folder

Key objectives of the final workshop within this COST Action FP0802 are to present the main outcome of the Action to stakeholders, to summarise the scientific progress achieved as a result of the Action, and to formulate remaining open questions and future research challenges. The workshop will include an evaluation session with representatives of COST, which will only be open to the Management Committee members.

The main purpose of the workshop will remain to serve as a scientific platform and forum to communicate current ideas and strategies in the field of wood micro-characterisation. As has been customary, there will be a focus on the potential of emerging experimental and computational techniques and of combinations of already well-established techniques for investigating the ultrastructural origin of the moisture and time dependence of the mechanical behaviour of wood.

The workshop, as with previous events within COST Action FP0802, will bring together researchers from different areas of engineering including biology, physics, chemistry, material science, forestry, engineering, etc. Scientists with a general methodological background in material characterisation at smaller length scales with no particular focus on wood mechanics are also strongly encouraged to participate.

Call for Papers 

Authors are kindly invited to submit an abstract related to the topics of the workshop by June 30, 2012.
