Presentations in the parallel sessions and posters

The parallel sessions at Treesearch Progress 2019 is divided into four themes; Sourcing and modification, Process and rheology, Properties of materials and Devices.  The rooms are located close to each other; making it possible to switch between the sessions. The parallel sessions takes place day two, May 8, between 11.15 and 15.15. 

The posters will be available in the main conference room during the whole conference.

A book of abstract will be available for the registered participants.
