Betreff: IUFRO 3.08 conference on small-scale and community forestry - 2nd call for papers
It is my great pleasure to make the Second Announcement and Call for Papers for the next IUFRO 3.08 Small-scale Forestry conference. The theme of the conference is Small-scale and Community Forestry and the Changing Nature of Forest Landscapes to be held on the Sunshine Coast, Australia from 11 to 15 October, 2015. Further details about the conference can be found at http://www.smallscaleforestry.org
The second call for papers has opened will close on 3 June, 2015, with notification of acceptance of papers by 12 June. Details about the call, topics of interest and the process for submitting abstracts can be found on the conference website. We received 117 abstracts as part of the first call, with just over 70 papers being accepted for oral presentation and the remaining papers accepted as poster presentations. Unfortunately this means we only have limited space for additional oral presentations. It is unlikely that any further abstracts for oral presentation will be accepted after the second call closes on 5 June.
We have also been fortunate to receive funding from the IUFRO Special Program for Development of Capacities (SPDC) Scientist Assistance Program to support three scientists from developing countries to attend. Further details can be found on the conference website.
Registration for conference will open on Monday 17 May, with an early bird rate available until 30 June. Registration will be via the conference website. Further details will also be posted shortly about the 3 day post conference tour to the World Heritage Listed Fraser Island.
Looking forward to seeing you in sunny Queensland!
