The European Conference on Wood Modification is now firmly established as the premier global event dedicated to the science and technology of wood modification. This conference, now the eighth in the series, will provide a forum for individuals from research organisations and companies to learn about the latest developments in this rapidly evolving field, to discuss with renowned experts and to build their networks in an informal and friendly atmosphere. The conference, held in conjunction with COST Action FP1303 (Performance of Biobased Building Materials) will cover all forms of wood modification, including, but not limited to thermal, oleo-thermal, thermo-hydro-mechanical, chemical and impregnation modifications, as well as emerging technologies such as microwave, plasma and enzymatic modification. There will also be sessions dealing with testing methods and standards, environmental issues, quality control and various aspects of commercialisation, as well as poster presentation sessions.

It is now more than a decade since the first European Conference on Wood Modification was held in Ghent in 2003. Since then there have been many advances in the area of wood modification and the market for commercial modified wood products has expanded. In this conference we will explore how modified wood products can help create a more resource efficient future. We look forward to meeting you in Finland!

Mark Hughes, Lauri Rautkari and Dennis Jones
