The 12th International Conference on Wood Adhesives will be held May 11-13, 2022 at the Portland Hilton Downtown hotel in Portland, Oregon, USA.

We are very excited to move forward with planning for a full, in-person event next Spring.

The International Conference on Wood Adhesives is the premier technical conference on advances in the adhesion of wood and biomass. Industry representatives were the majority of the 241 attendees in 2017, evenly split between the U.S. and the rest of the world.

Whether you are an adhesive supplier or user or user of the downstream product; from industry, academia, government, or NGO, this conference provides a unique opportunity. Don't wait another 3-4 years.

If your business depends on having solid technical knowledge about glued wood products, this meeting is for you. We recruit the best technical thinking in the field of wood adhesives so you get the most value for your time invested and will have access to the proceedings.

Announcements will be made via the conference website and on the Linkedin group “International Conference on Wood Adhesives” as information becomes available. Abstracts will be due in fall 2021.

If you have an idea for making the conference even better, please contact the Organizing Committee.
