The organizing committee for the 2021 PACWEST Conference has opened its call for technical papers.

Interested mills, suppliers, researchers and students are asked to submit the title of their presentation, abstract/summary, authors name(s), their affiliation and contact information.

The time limit for presentations is 20 minutes, with five minutes for questions and answers. The conference will be held online this year due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.


The deadline to submit technical paper proposals is Mar. 19. Successful applicants will be notified at the end of March. Video presentations will be due by May 10.

All presentations and their contents will be judged, with awards in several categories: the HR MacMillan Trophy for Best Mill Presentation, Runner-Up Presentation, Best Supplier Presentation, Best Novice Presentation and Best Student Presentation. Awards will be given out at a follow-up session, with date TBA.

To submit abstracts for technical papers, email Jennifer Boese, PACWEST 2021 program chair at jennifer.boese [at] westfraser.com.
