Dear IUFRO colleague,
The Science and the Art of Uneven-aged Silviculture
Little Rock, Arkansas, USA - 31 May-2 June 2016
CONFERENCE WEBSITE IS NOW LIVE
Further details about the meeting can be found here:
Registration will be available soon.
CALL FOR PAPERS AND POSTERS
The Workshop invites oral presentations and poster presentations on the
science, history, and practice of uneven-aged silviculture. Topics can
emphasize the science underlying uneven-aged silviculture, or can
explore the artistic elements of uneven-aged silvicultural practice
(however the authors may choose to interpret that). Presentations and
posters that attempt to bridge the science and the art of uneven-aged
silviculture are especially encouraged.
If you are interested in making a presentation or introducing a poster
please send the following information to gary.kerr(a)forestry.gsi.gov.uk
by Friday 29 January 2016. The submission will then be evaluated by the
scientific committee and authors will be informed of the decision by
Friday 26 February 2016. All submissions should be sent as .doc or .txt
files using the following format.

CALL FOR SESSION PROPOSALS - 1st REMINDER
Deadline for Submissions: 31 January 2016
>From 24 to 27 October 2016, IUFRO will hold its first Regional Congress for Asia and Oceania in Beijing, China. Under the Congress title "Forests for Sustainable Development: the Role of Research", we hope to establish a cutting-edge scientific programme highlighting the role of forest science in informing forest-related policies and management in Asia and Oceania to cope with the significant environmental, social and economic changes in the region and address the consequent challenges.
For such a programme to materialize, we need your contributions: diverse, from inside and outside the region, across the full range of natural and social science disciplines at various levels, from the gene to the globe.
Therefore please submit by 31 January at the latest your session proposals addressing one or more of the following Congress themes:
1. Sustainable forest management for enhanced provision of ecosystem services;
2. Forest and landscape rehabilitation and restoration;
3. Combating desertification, disaster and risk management, and climate change mitigation and adaptation;
4. Planted forests for fostering a greener economy;
5. Innovative technologies for bio-energy, bio-materials and other products;
6. Urban forestry for human health and community well-being;
7. Social and cultural aspects of forests, including traditional knowledge, human health, community participation and gender roles;
8. Forest and agro-forest management for food security, enhanced livelihoods and non-timber forest products.
