Dear Division 5 mailing list members:
This e-mail is in anticipation of the 2012 IUFRO Wood Drying Conference to
be held in Belém, Brazil, from July 30 to August 3.
IUFRO Wood Drying Party 5.04.06 would like to create a confidential e-mail
distribution list with the only purpose of updating the potential
The IUFRO Wood Drying Party would really appreciate if you could forward
this e-mail to any other colleagues that may be interested in receiving the
updates abuot this conference. If you want to have your name included in the
list, please write to: <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>
Thank you very much in advance,

Non-wood forest products (NWFPs) are defined as all tangible plant and
animal products, other than wood, derived from forests. These products
generally include edible plant and animal products such as mushrooms, honey
and meat, medicinal and aromatic products, fodder and other raw plant and
animal materials. In recent years, domestic and international demand for
these NWFPs is increasing and forestry sector is gaining a new awareness for
the importance of NWFPs. NWFPs not only provide versatile economical,
social, cultural and ecological benefit to the general society, but also
play an essential role in livelihood of local communities which rely on
forests as their major source of income and survival. In some regions, NWFPs
can provide more income to rural communities than wood products and other
traditional timber-based forestry activities.
In this respect, an international symposium on non-wood forest products will
be organized in 8-10 September 2011 in Suleyman Demirel University, Isparta,
to bring all the stakeholders from scientific and partitioning communities
together to discuss our current knowledge of the subject. All interested
parties are welcome to join us at the "2nd International Non-wood Forest
Products Symposium" in Isparta, Turkey.
You can see details about symposium in below.

Dear IUFRO colleagues,
The IUFRO TREE BIOTECHNOLOGY 2011 Conference organization is developing exceptionally well. I am now pleased to inform that the scientific program has been posted in the conference webpage. Please visit http://www.treebiotech2011.com/program.html for more details.
The organizing committee has also extended the abstract submission deadlines in order to capture an increased representation of worldwide contributions to the Conference. The new deadlines are:
Submission of abstracts to be selected for oral presentation March 31, 2011
Submission of abstract for poster presentation only April 30, 2011
STUDENT TRAVEL GRANTS. Applications for Student Travel Grants are open. A number of travel grants will be available to students regularly enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs and presenting an abstract as first author either orally or as poster. The awards will include complimentary registration and a grant towards the recipients' accommodation costs. Applications are in English only and must be received by March 31, 2011. Confirmations will be made before April 15, 2011.
BEST ABSTRACT AWARDS. Awards will be granted to the three best abstracts presented orally and the three best abstracts presented as posters by students or young scientists (< 35 years old) as first authors, irrespective of the program session.
SPONSORSHIPS FOR THE CONFERENCE ARE WELCOME. We have confirmed an excellent group of sponsor organizations for the Conference (see at http://www.treebiotech2011.com/sponsors.html. Sponsorships of the IUFRO Tree Biotechnology 2011 Conference continue open until April 30. Such sponsorships offer a prime opportunity to reach the forest biotech decision makers. Sponsors benefits go beyond those directly associated with the specific sponsorship opportunities, and include complimentary registrations, recognition on marketing materials, exhibit booth area, use of meeting rooms to hold company's technical workshops to advertise company´s products or and access to meeting space on-site. Sponsor's benefits are based upon the organization's sponsorship level. As the level of financial support increases, sponsorship benefits increase accordingly. Please see the Sponsorship options at http://www.treebiotech2011.com/opportunities.html for more information.
HELP ADVERTISE THE IUFRO TREE BIOTECH 2011 CONFERENCE. We gladly welcome help from the forest science community to continue to promote the conference. To this end we encourage you to download the second conference announcement flyer (pdf format) from the conference webpage at http://www.treebiotech2011.com/conference_announcements.html print it and post it in your laboratory or department building message board. We have also posted a short Powerpoint presentation that you are welcome to use to help advertise the conference during your next seminar. You are also welcome to forward this message to any mailing list that you believe would reach colleagues interested in this Conference.
So mark the conference on your 2011 calendar, June 26 - July 2. It will sure be a memorable Conference.
We look forward to welcoming you in person!
