2021 Conferences

The Fiber Society--Good News!

Greetings and Best Wishes to The Fiber Society's (FS) many Members, Associates, Colleagues, and Friends around the globe!  We trust that everyone is safe and well as we all deal with the ongoing Covid-19 (Corona Virus) Pandemic.

The FS Officers recently held a virtual meeting with the team at KU Leuven (Belgium) and discussed resumption of our technical conferences in spring 2022 (e.g., late May/early June).  While plans still are tentative--and much depends on how the pandemic evolves over the next several months--we plan to issue a Call for Papers on/about 01 December 2021.

Please watch our FS website and (or) our Facebook and LinkedIn group pages for further announcements.  [Links below].  We all look forward to receiving your submissions and to meeting FS friends in Belgium in the new year!
