The main focus of the International Wood Machining Seminars is on wood machining and related scientific and production topics. The coverage is quite broad and diverse wood-based subjects beyond machining are also included and are welcome.

The following is a list of the session titles in the previous IWMS-23, held in Poland in 2017. The session titles in IWMS-24 will not be identical, but will have a similar pattern.

  • Primary and Secondary Machining Processes
  • Cutting Process
  • Tool Wear
  • Advances in Sawing Technology
  • Machine Safe Guarding and Worker Safety
  • Production Management

The sessions at the International Wood Machining Seminars include both oral and poster presentations. Formal proceedings are produced and are distributed to all participants. The proceedings contain detailed journal-style papers for all presentations, both oral and poster. The IWMS-23 Proceedings Table of Contents illustrates a typical Seminar program.

Following the conclusion of IWMS-24, an optional Post-Seminar Tour will visit nearby prominent wood processing facilities and places of interest, 29-30 August. If you would like to join the tour, please include this option within your registration and reserve your hotel room for two extra nights.
