Dear IUFRO member,
A short note to let you know that the next meeting of IUFRO Research
Group 1.05.00 on uneven-aged silviculture will be based at the Swiss
Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (WSL) in
Birmesndorf near Zurich in Switzerland.
The title of the conference will be: 'Future concepts in uneven-aged
silviculture for a changing world'
The conference will be held on Tuesday 17 June 2014 to Thursday 19 June
(3 days) and the post conference field trip will be between Friday 20
June and Tuesday 24 June (5 days).
We are in the process of designing a website with more information and
registration details. The website will go live in September.

We look forward to seeing you in Switzerland next summer.

As in the past IUFRO World Congresses, there will be an opportunity to honor special scientific performances and achievements with selected IUFRO Awards at the Salt Lake City Congress in 2014.
There are still good chances for your candidate to be among the awardees: awardees will win a ticket to travel to Salt Lake City and will have the opportunity to present the Award-winning work to the Congress participants. Therefore, choose among the Scientific Achievement Award (SAA), Outstanding Doctoral Research Award (ODRA) and the IUFRO Student Award (ISA) and make your nomination soon. Bear in mind that you can only nominate candidates from IUFRO Member Organizations, - no self-nominations are accepted – and that the deadline for submission expires at the end of August 2013.
Find more information and nomination forms on our website http://www.iufro.org/discover/awards/ and send your nominations to the Chair of the IUFRO Honors & Awards Committee (Dr. Shirong Liu, liusr(a)caf.ac.cn) with copy to the IUFRO Executive Director (office(a)iufro.org).
