A call for Technical Forum (poster) Presentations: Forest Products Society 58th Annual Meeting.

Technical Forum Presentations are being solicited for the Forest Products Society's 58th Annual Meeting. A Technical Forum consists of a number of simultaneous presentations by individuals who are assigned a "booth" space (similar to a typical exhibit booth) in a large meeting room. Each space contains a 4- by 8-foot posterboard on which an abstract, key points, conclusions, charts, and tables or diagrams are posted. A small table is provided for display of preprints or samples related to the presentation.

During a Technical Forum, meeting attendees browse among the presentations and speak directly with the presenters. Technical Forum presentations are informal, conversational, and highly conducive to the interchange of information between audience and presenter.

Subject areas for Technical Forum presentations include:

* Composites and Manufactured Products

* Fundamental Disciplines

* Management

* Processes

* Solid Wood Products

* Wood Engineering

Technical Forum presentations are a primary means of disseminating technical information at the Annual Meeting. Technical Forums are scheduled for 2-1/2 hour blocks. Each presenter is expected to be present at his/her booth for a minimum of 1-1/2 hours.

Individuals interested in giving a poster presentation must return the Technical Forum (Poster) Presentation Request Form, which was recently mailed to all members. The completed form should be returned as soon as possible--no later than January 9, 2004 - to meet the deadline for inclusion in the brochure publicizing the meeting. However, requests will be accepted after that date, providing space is available. Detailed information and guidelines for preparing a poster presentation will be mailed to each presenter after the January 9 deadline.

If you are not a member of the Forest Products Society and, therefore, did not receive a request form in the mail, please contact the Conferences & Meetings Department at 608-231-1361, ext. 208, fax 608-231-2152, or e-mail to request a form. You may also submit this form electronically by visiting our web site at
