Conference on wood science and technology

From: Kate Seymour <k.seymour<-a>
Date: Wednesday, July 2, 2014
Conference: Wood Science and Technology
Maastricht, The Netherlands
October 17-18, 2014

Organised by Kate Seymour and Siska Losse
Auditorium BonnefantenMuseum
Hosted by: SRAL

This two day conference on wood, hosted by SRAL, is directed towards
the latest developments and state of the art in Wood Science and

Themes to be discussed will include the mechanical and chemical
behaviour of wood with a focus on its use for painted panels.
Lectures will include aspects such as the cell structure of wood,
sourcing wood for panel construction, and dendrochronology.

Sessions on the rheology of wood, modelling risks and change in
dimensions induced by fluctuations in relative humidity will be
held.  Climate conditions for the best preservation of painted
wooden artefacts will be addressed.

The conference provide the opportune venue for researchers in the
field of wood science to exchange ideas and information on this
subject.  Students will be most welcome.

The Conference will take place in the auditorium of the
BonnefantenMuseum, Maastricht which has a capacity of 100.
