The World Conference on Timber Engineering (WCTE) is the worlds premier forum for presenting and discussing the latest technical and architectural developments and innovations in wood or timber construction. Since 1996, the WCTE has been held biennially in different parts of the world.
The scientific program of WCTE 2016 included 800 presentations 350 out of them in the on specific topics organized mini-symposia, more than 200 in general sessions related to conference topics and 190 additional poster presentations.
The presentations showing latest research results were distributed along the five conference tracks as follows: one third each are related to “Track 1: wood products & components” and “Track 4: timber engineering”. The remaining third is evenly spread among “Track 2: computer-based methods”, “Track 3: timber architecture”, and “Track 5: implementation”.
The scientific program was complemented by Plenary and Semi-Plenary Lectures of distinguished scientists in the field:
PLENARY LECTURES by Ingo Burgert (Switzerland), Gerald Epp (Canada), Hermann Kaufmann (Austria), and Erik Serrano (Sweden), as well as
SEMI-PLENARY LECTURES by Ki-Cheol Bae (Korea), Andy Buchanan (New Zealand), Kaori Fujita (Japan), Esa Kaikkonen (Finland), Alfred Kammerhofer (Switzerland), Eric N.
