Especially designed for students, this is a great opportunity to get industry input on student projects, as well as to gain exposure for students and programs conducting research in bioenergy and bioproducts.

Posters addressing the following topics are welcomed:

Submission Instructions

Presenters will be notified of acceptance by August 31, 2022 and must provide a first draft of their presentation by September 15, 2022.

Conference Registration 
Fees have not yet been set, but in 2019 student registration fees were $95 for TAPPI student members, and $130 for nonmembers (which includes a TAPPI student membership). It is expected for 2022 fees to be very similar to these rates. Please visit the IBBC website at for more details

Poster presenters are also invited to participate in IBBC’s Rapid Fire Showcase.

Attendees interested in subjects presented during the rapid-fire oral session can visit the accompanying poster and have a more in-depth discussion with the rapid-fire presenters during the student poster session and competition. This format offers greater exposure to presenters, as well as gives attendees a snapshot into the wide variety of research being conducted in the biorefinery arena.

Your power point presentation should have only 5 slides:
