The time will really barely be enough to just get started on developing design practices (not specifications) for mills to implement. Most of the time will look more like working committee meetings rather than anything else. I doubt that will be conducive to webinar style work, although we already have that capability. As far as TAPPI is concerned, these days they seem to specifically choose not to cooperate with Paperitalo Publications, in fact treat us in a quite hostile manner, as best we can discern. Perhaps you could help me explain the program better. What is missing that would help you better understand it?

This being the first "workshop", if the number of people who can attend is small could this be done "remotely" via the web? Would TAPPI assist with their webinar capability? It's hard to imagine what will fill 8 hours - my interest is in encouraging/supporting use of modern materials of construction for rolls, dryers, machine and press frames, chests and tanks, piping, hoods, etc. I'll wait to see from the program how the time will be used.
