As in the past IUFRO World Congresses, there will be an opportunity to honor special
scientific performances and achievements with selected IUFRO Awards at the Salt Lake City
Congress in 2014.
There are still good chances for your candidate to be among the awardees: awardees will
win a ticket to travel to Salt Lake City and will have the opportunity to present the
Award-winning work to the Congress participants. Therefore, choose among the Scientific
Achievement Award (SAA), Outstanding Doctoral Research Award (ODRA) and the IUFRO Student
Award (ISA) and make your nomination soon. Bear in mind that you can only nominate
candidates from IUFRO Member Organizations, - no self-nominations are accepted – and that
the deadline for submission expires at the end of August 2013.
Find more information and nomination forms on our website
and send your nominations to the Chair of the IUFRO
Honors & Awards Committee (Dr. Shirong Liu, liusr(a)caf.ac.cn) with copy to the IUFRO
Executive Director (office(a)iufro.org).
