Subject: COST Action EUMIXFOR Workshop - SILVICULTURE OF MIXED FORESTS IN EUROPE, 28-29 May 2015
COST Action EUMIXFOR Workshop
co-sponsored by IUFRO WGs 1.01.06 & 4.02.06, Italian Society of Silviculture and Forest Ecology (SISEF), Italian Academy of Forest Sciences (AISF)
SILVICULTURE OF MIXED FORESTS IN EUROPE
28-29 May 2015
Consiglio per la ricerca e la sperimentazione in agricoltura, Forestry Research Centre (CRA-SEL), Arezzo, Italy
This Workshop is intended to give participants direct insight into and experience of the practice and potential of the silviculture of mixed species forests, with particular (but not exclusive) emphasis on Europe. Topics to be covered will include: regeneration methods; intermediate treatments and thinning; conversion methods (including coppice to high forests and vice-versa); silvicultural recovery of abandoned mixed stands and of mixed stands from recent natural colonization of former agricultural fields; challenges for mixed tree species silviculture to enhance wood and non-wood productions, biodiversity conservation, ecosystem services; challenges for mixed tree species silviculture under global changes and landscape management. Both presentations synthesizing information at the European scale and presentations focusing on more local studies are invited. The target audience is scientists, young researchers and managers working on, or collaborating with, silvicultural projects in mixed species forests.

First Announcement and Call for Papers
International IUFRO Symposium
Cross-sectoral policy impacts on managerial economics and accounting in forestry
Jointly organized by:
IUFRO Unit 9.05.03 – Cross-sectoral policy impacts on forest and environment
IUFRO Unit 4.05.00 - Managerial Economics and Accounting
(Hotel Hollywood, May 4th – 6th, 2015)
Background and objectives
Due to emerging cross-sectoral policy impacts on forests and environment, the forestry sector alone cannot achieve sustainable forest management. Policies in related areas such as agriculture, energy, climate changes, biodiversity, water and tourism heavily affect framework conditions for forests and the environment. At the same time, global trends such as increased demand for energy and raw materials, trade liberalization and the diversification of demand for forest goods and services, have enhanced reciprocal reflections - goods and services from trees and forests become increasingly important and demanded by other sectors. With the objective to focus on the linkages and interdependencies of changes in forest land use but also to contribute to international scientific dialogue on how to engage with other sectors so as to better coordinate and harmonize policies, especially in areas of conflicting priorities, IUFRO Unit 9.05.03 (Cross-sectoral policy impacts on forests and environment) was established in 2012. The first international Symposium of IUFRO Unit 9.05.03 was organized in Sarajevo (Bosnia-Herzegovina), November 28th – 29th, 2013, gathering scientists interested in cross-sectoral policy impacts on forests and environment. The thematic topic of this event was focused on perception of professionals from different sectors towards forest governance. This event encouraged cross-disciplinary research in forestry and environmental sciences and strengthens the importance of policy and social sciences in forestry.
IUFRO unit 4.05.00 was founded in 1981, with its first meeting in 1985 in Brno, Czech Republic, with a theme of ‘Current Problems of Managerial Economics in Forestry’. The Unit concentrates on the economic and accounting aspects of management of different types of forest enterprises, specifically small-scale enterprises. The Unit deals with the economic analyses of forest enterprises, principles and techniques of accounting relevant to forest enterprises, fundaments of decision-making, and the economic and accounting tools for planning, supervising, measuring, controlling, and evaluating the status and performance of forest enterprises. The main objective of IUFRO Unit 4.05.00 is to promote international cooperation in forestry research related to managerial economics and managerial, social, and environmental accounting. The Unit is organized around three topics: 1) Multifunctionality – including analysis of wood and non-wood supply and demand and integration of ecosystem services, 2) Evolving context – including the changes and their consequences as well as the expected changes and their consequences, and 3) Uncertainty and Risk.
The conference theme, “Cross-sectoral policy impacts on managerial economics and accounting in forestry” aims to examine linkages between the policy and economic components of forest resources and associated values. Specifically, the conference will address the influence of policy decisions on economic returns to forest management, the role that forest accounting plays in assessing policy implementation and outcomes, and how forest accounting and economics can provide information for policy deliberations. Focus areas include:
• Economic assessment of the effects of environmental and political changes on forest management
• Economic and environmental assessment of forest- and trade-related policies
• Opportunities and challenges of policies related to payments for ecosystem services and consequences for forest management
• The role of decision support systems in adaptation to shifting legal and institutional framework conditions
• Other sectors impacts on environment and forest sustainability under changing framework conditions
• Institutional (regulations, policies, behaviours etc.) and economic instruments addressing emerging societal needs from forest ecosystems
• Forest development and management in the light of global change
• Social and cultural aspects of managerial and economic opportunities and challenges connected with forest ecosystem
• Governance of cross-sectoral forest policy impacts: the role of economics and accounting systems.
• Scientists from forest policy, governance, economics, accounting and social sciences
• Professionals from forestry, environmental and political organizations
• Employees from public forest administration
• Students with interests in cross-sectoral policy impacts on forests and environment
