The annual TDI Research Symposium is a venue for members of the building community and other stakeholders to join TDI and faculty members from University of Oregon and Oregon State University to learn about and discuss current and upcoming mass timber research projects and results. The research symposium also serves as an opportunity for industry members from all sectors to weigh in on how research might be more effectively shared, and where they see critical gaps in knowledge as pertains to their practice. The Research Symposium will take place in the new A.A. “Red” Emmerson Advanced Wood Products Laboratory, and will be followed by a large open house event focused on demonstrating the lab’s structural testing and advanced manufacturing capabilities.

The format for the symposium will be different this year, as presentations will be divided into four topic areas:

     Panel 1: Structural and Seismic 

     Panel 2: Fire, Water and Serviceability 

     Panel 3: Design and Human Factors 

     Panel 4: Economic and Environmental 


Who Should Attend?

Architects, engineers, construction professionals, manufacturers, code officials, developers, researchers, or other stakeholders who are interested in mass timber and mass timber research.

Other Notes:

A BBQ Lunch will be provided to all attendees of the research symposium, which will be followed up in the afternoon with the TallWood Design Institute Open House and Emmerson Lab Public Opening  (1:30 PM - 4:30 PM).
