Last month’s FPS 64th International Convention was an amazing success! Hosted by the FPS Midwest Section in beautiful downtown Madison, Wisconsin, the Convention was our largest in years. The Convention attracted nearly 350 attendees from 23 countries with over 80 universities, government, and industry labs and technical associations represented. Nearly 180 technical presentations were organized into 33 sessions, with an additional 128 scientific posters on display.

In addition to the General Session and Technical Program, the 64th International Convention included traditional FPS events such as the Welcoming Reception sponsored by the Forest Products Lab, Student Appreciation Luncheon, and the annual Paul Bunyan Party sponsored by TECO. New this year was a Student Poster Competition sponsored by all fourteen FPS Sections and a poster session on the History of Forest Products Research, Development and Technology Transfer.

The Midwest Section, its Planning Committee, and FPS staff deserve special recognition for organizing an outstanding Convention. Thank you also to all of our sponsors for helping to ensure a most successful Convention!
