The 9th European Conference on Wood Modification

The Netherlands ● Arnhem ● September 17-18, 2018

Dear friends and colleagues,

Due to a lot of interest from industry and research in the Netherlands in the 1990´s, begin 2000, SHR set up and coordinated an “European Network on Wood Modification“. These network activities were the start to the conference series in wood modification ECWM, which was held at several places in Europe in the last 13 years. In 2018 we now will meet back again in the Netherlands!  The participation in these conferences from outside Europe have shown that the name “European conferences” is much too small…so: a warm welcome to researchers from industry and academia from Europe and abroad!

Holger Militz, chairman ECWM

The European Conference on Wood Modification is now firmly established as the premier event dedicated to all global wood modification technologies. This conference, the ninth in the series, provides a forum for members of research organisations and companies to learn about the latest developments in this rapidly changing field.  The conference will cover thermal, oleothermal, mechanothermal, chemical, impregnation modifications, as well as emerging technologies (microwave, rf, plasma, enzymatic, etc.).  There will also be sessions dealing with testing methods and standards, environmental issues, and various aspects of commercialisation, as well as our renowned poster presentation sessions.

We hope to welcome you September 2018 in Arnhem.

The conference is co-hosted by COST FP1407
