FOR THE past four years, the NCE poster display, which features the research work of graduate students from across Canada, has been one of the highlights of EXFOR.

For one first-time attendee to EXFOR, the display was yet another testament of its multi-faceted set up. “This is really impressive and it shows willingness to get participation from everybody,” said Willie Jenkins, a technical manager at a Houston-based company, as he made his way around the 24 panels. “This is the sort of stuff that the industry needs to grow and become more competitive.”

McMaster’s supervising professor was pleased with the location of this year’s display. Robert Pelton, who has been coming to EXFOR yearly since the implementation of the student showcase, noted that it allows schools to show what they have done with the research money being donated by pulp and paper companies.
