XXVI IUFRO World Congress: Call for Abstracts
XXVI IUFRO World Congress 2024
FORESTS AND SOCIETY TOWARDS 2050
Stockholm, Sweden; 23-29 June 2024
Congress website: https://www.iufro2024.com/
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Dear forest scientists and experts, dear IUFRO members, dear colleagues,
The Congress Scientific Committee (CSC) is pleased to announce that the Call for Abstracts for the XXVI IUFRO Congress in Stockholm, Sweden, 23-29 June 2024, is open and welcomes submissions of abstracts for presentations in sub-plenary, technical and poster sessions.
To submit your abstract, please take the following steps:
1. Consult the list of sessions at Call for Congress Abstract | IUFRO Stockholm 2024 (iufro2024.com)<https://iufro2024.com/call-for-congress-abstract>
2. Submit your abstract at Abstract Submission | IUFRO 2024 <https://www.appinconf.com/kas/Abstract?projectName=iufro2024abstracts>
A form for abstract submission is available online. You will be required to insert a title (max 150 characters), authors with their affiliation (the author presenting the paper or poster at the Congress must be designated as the Presenting Author), and text (max 350 words describing context, specific topic of the study, methods, main results, and conclusions in plain writing). No figures, tables or list of references should be added. Please note that abstracts may be submitted in English only.
Authors must select one of the following options: oral only; poster only; oral or poster. The session organizers will decide on the length of a talk, which could range from 2-3 minutes for flash talks to 15 minutes or more for regular talks. Please note that poster presenters will be given the opportunity to present their work orally (2-3 min) during moderated poster sessions. The Congress will feature only digital poster displays to ensure high visibility for poster presentations. Poster areas will be open and free to visit during the whole Congress.
Authors are limited to a maximum of two abstracts as presenting author, although an individual may be listed as a co-author on several abstracts. Abstracts not associated with one of the sessions in the list may be assigned to a general poster session. Session organizers will review the abstracts for scientific quality, topical significance and relevance to the Congress themes<https://iufro2024.com/iufro-world-congress-2024/forests-and-society-towards…> and to the particular session to which the abstract is submitted, and assign them as oral or poster presentations. You will be informed in due time about the type and length of your presentation.
Candidates for Best Poster Award<https://www.iufro.org/fileadmin/material/discover/honour-bpa.pdf> must apply online during the abstract submission process.
Abstracts will be accepted until 2 June 2023. Authors will be informed if their presentation is accepted by 30 October 2023. In order to remain in the programme, the registration deadline for Presenting Authors of accepted abstracts is 15 January 2024.
We look forward to your active participation in the design of the scientific program for the 2024 IUFRO Congress in Stockholm.

Dear Division 2,
just a quick message to inform you that the session below is accepted for IUFRO 2024.
As it is inherently interdisciplinary (it actually covers several Div2 Research Groups and Working parties within, but also other Divisions), I reckon it should be of interest to many of you.
Multi-disciplinary approaches to the modelling of FGR resilience: there's more than genetics to Forest Genetic Resources
The monitoring and conservation of Forest Genetic Resources (FGR) rests primarily on indicators describing the genetic diversity of forest stands.These indicators are essential as they summarise at least some aspects of adaptive potential, and because populations with too low genetic diversity risk falling into an extinction spiral.
Notwithstanding the dearth of information that can be extracted from genetic data, this is likely to be insufficient to describe the short- and long-term capacity of forests to buffer the disturbances caused by drivers such as climate change and to persist in the long term.
Interdisciplinary research involving tree physiology, population biology, ecosystem ecology, evolutionary biology, and genetics, and resting on methods such as remote sensing, machine learning, and modelling is necessary to correctly assess all components of forest resilience. Ongoing research programs such as Horizon Europe-funded FORGENIUS and OptFORESTs aim at synthesising results from multiple research fields to identify which characteristics can drive forest resilience and vulnerability. In particular, it is essential to look closely both at plastic, short term, responses and evolutionary, long term adaptive capacity.
In this session we will hear from research and management actions based on multidisciplinary approaches to assessing and preserving forest resilience, and discuss their respective benefits and drawbacks, their complementarities, as well as their respective application ranges.
