Call for Papers:
The Call for Papers for the 16th Fundamental Research Symposium can be found here: http://www.ppfrs.org/FirstCallForPapers16 final.pdf
The next Fundamental Research Symposium will take place at Pembroke College, Oxford from 3rd to 8th September, 2017. This will be the 16th Pulp and Paper Fundamental Research Symposium.
We now have a LinkedIn Group called "The
Pulp and Paper Fundamental Research Symposia".
Volume 3 of the Proceedings of the 15th Fundamental Research Symposium is now available and has been despatched to the addresses provided by the delegates who should receive it soon (May 2014). Apologies for the delay in the production of this final volume containing the keynote lecture and the transcribed and edited discussion from the symposium but this was due to problems beyond the control of the FRC. The CD contining the high-resolution digital version of the proceeedings (including volume 3) is also available and has been sent to delegates: please feel free to replace the preprint version supplied on the USB pendrives provided at Cambridge.
New Fundamental Research Committee Chairman:
The FRC is pleased to announce that Daniel Söderberg has been appointed Chairman with effect from the 13th September 2013.
Some information on the results of the survey conducted in October 2012 on the way that the Fundamental Research Symposia are run can be found here.
The 1st Fundamental Research Symposium was held in 1957 and since then has been held every 4 years, including contributions from the very best pulp and paper scientists and engineers from around the globe. Members of the FRC have picked out their own favourites from our extensive archive for our new Iconic Papers section. In each case, you can download a reprint of the paper and read the reasons why it is considered so influential on past and future research in our subject.
Proceedings of Fundamental Research Symposia now accredited by Thomson Reuters:
The proceedings of the 13th and 14th Fundamental Research Symposia have been included in the Thomson Reuters database. All articles published in these proceedings can now be searched via Web of Science®, Web of Knowledge® and the Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science®. Proceedings of future symposia will be submitted for inclusion in these databases.
If you have any ideas, comments or complaints please email us and let us know.
