WCTE 2016 in review
The 2016 World Conference in Timber Engineering (WCTE) was held in Vienna, Austria from 22nd to 25th August. Over the four days there were over 500 presentations. Following the conference there were technical tours that varied from half a day to two days in length. I was also given the opportunity to attend the two day tour around Graz and Carinthia which showcased some of the timber construction in the area and included visits to production plants.
I would like to acknowledge the Timber Design Society (TDS) and the management committee for granting me the scholarship. This scholarship involved a significant financial contribution which covered my attendance to the conference. Thank you for this unique opportunity to attend this conference.
