The 2003 International Mechanical Pulping Conference will be held at the Loews Le Concorde Hotel in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, from June 2 to 5, 2003. The conference is sponsored by PAPTAC (Canada), TAPPI (United States), SPCI (Sweden), and PI (Finland).

The conference chairman is Richard Presley, Southern Ionics, Inc., Kingwood, Texas, USA. The program chairman is David McDonald, Paprican, Pointe-Claire, Quebec, Canada.

The conference will focus on the manufacture and use of mechanical pulps with the theme: "Cost efficient mechanical pulp in high quality products: A bright future."


* The future of mechanical pulp

* Pulp and fibre quality

* Furnish challenges

* Mill experiences

* Research results

* How to lower energy consumption

* Fractionation strategies

* Brighter, more permanent mechanical pulps

Papers are sought on all aspects of mechanical pulping, energy use, pulp brightening, fiber characteristics, pulp quality and paper properties.

A poster session will allow discussion of work in progress, and presentation of important research and scientific work. Poster presentations require submission of a full paper, which will be included in the proceedings of the conference. If you wish your abstract to be considered only for the poster session, please identity your abstract this way.

The conference chair is Jeff Suhling, Auburn University, Auburn, Alabama, USA. The program chair is Mark Kortschot, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The conference will focus on all areas of paper physics, including fundamental work on the structure and properties of fibers and fibrous products--especially paper and board--and the physical and physicochemical mechanisms that occur in the manufacture and use of paper and paper products. It will be organized into oral presentation and poster sessions. In addition to papers on completed research and development projects, certain sessions will be devoted to work in progress.

Those wishing to present a paper at the conference should submit a one-page abstract of approximately 250 words, preferably by email, by December 1, 2002 to:
