Guidelines for Poster Presentation


The title, authors' names, affiliations, and countries should be labeled clearly at the top of poster. All posters should be the submitted contribution as accepted by the Scientific Committee.


The poster should be 90 cm (width) by 120 cm (length).


The printed poster should be brought by the presenter. The poster board (100 cm (width) by 200 cm (length)) will be provided by the Secretariat. The poster may be attached to the board at eye level with stick tapes, pushpins, or double-sided tapes. Office supplies for mounting will be prepared by the Secretariat on site, but it is recommended that presenters bring one's own supplies.

*Optional: Poster presenters who would like to deliver a brief oral presentation will be provided with three minutes within maximum three slides. More detailed information about this optional oral presentation will be notified soon.

Conference technical sessions will address the following topics:


structural properties, grading, and quality control of wood-based materials


structural analysis, modeling and design of connections, long-term behavior, fatigue and effects of moisture for connections

Structural Performance

wide range of structural systems, such as heavy timber frame, light-frame, bracing, CLT structures, and various composite systems (timber-concrete, timber-steel, timber-glass, etc), long-term performance, seismic design, and code development for the structural systems

Building Performance and Management

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), acoustics (sound insulation) and fire resistance of building component & system, building`s operation and maintenance technology

Tall Wood Buildings

high-rise wood buildings, structural design, code development, innovative structural systems for multi-story and tall wood building, integrated design and construction for high-rise wood buildings

Environmental Impact and Energy

sustainable and eco-friendly residential environment in wooden buildings, life cycle assessment, energy efficiency, passive and net-zero energy house technologies.

Traditional and Historic Structures

rehabilitation, recycling, and retrofitting of historic buildings and structures, structural behavior monitoring and cultural properties of traditional wood buildings

Educations and Future Trends

teaching and policies for timber engineering, re-emergence of wood as a main building material in contemporary construction, design tools and training, industry strategies to increase and improve wood use in modern constructions
