IBBC 2023 Call for Presentations


Opportunities for All Students!

Are you a student or graduate student who has recently joined the pulp and paper or allied industry? Have you successfully conducted research, implemented a project or have an idea for a project that sustainably drives our industry forward?

Gain valuable industry input on your work, plus a chance to win some cash. This is a great opportunity to get industry input on student projects, as well as to gain exposure for students and programs conducting research in fields related to pulp & paper, bioenergy, and bioproducts.

Abstracts are due August 21, 2023 and should be submitted directly to Pat Stiede.



This year during the IBBC Conference there will be a Rapid-Fire Showcase where presenters get 5 minutes to present 5 slides summarizing the research that they are working on. Conference attendees interested in subjects presented during the rapid-fire oral session can then visit the accompanying poster and have a more in-depth discussion during the student poster session and competition. This format offers greater exposure to presenters, as well as gives attendees a snapshot into the wide variety of research being conducted in the biorefinery arena.
