Since 1980 the Progress in Paper Physics Seminar has been organized biannually by the TAPPI Paper Physics Committee. The 2011 seminar will be held at Graz University of Technology in Graz, Austria, September 5-8th 2011.

The seminar will cover all areas of fiber and paper physics, i.e. characterization, behavior and performance of fibers, suspensions and the final product. The program commitee has selected 39 presentations and 27 poster papers for the seminar program.

Two keynote lectures and a panel discussion will be adressing the development of pulp and paper related research in a rapidly changing industrial environment. "Where is the Future of Paper Physics?" is the question to be discussed by representatives from industry and the research community.

Beside the technical lectures there is also an interesting social program:

  • Welcome Reception
