It is our pleasure to announce SilviLaser 2015, an international conference focusing on Lidar Applications for Assessing and Managing Forest Ecosystems.
For its 14th edition, SilviLaser is organized jointly with the ISPRS Laser Scanning Conference and the joint conference is part of the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2015, a scientific event hosting a bundle of high quality ISPRS or non ISPRS conferences and workshops on the topics of geospatial data acquisition, data processing, data visualization and dissemination.
The ISPRS Geospatial Week will take place from 28 September to 3 October 2015 in La Grande Motte, France. Further information on conferences and workshops that are part of the ISPRS Geospatial Week events can be found on the Geospatial week website (http://www.isprs-geospatialweek2015.org).
In this context, the purpose of SilviLaser 2015 is to present advancements in the field of Lidar applications for understanding forest ecosystem functioning and assessing, monitoring, and managing these complex ecosystems. Themes and topics will cover a wide range of laser technologies, from terrestrial to spaceborne lidar and their use across a diversity of forest environments for forested-related applications.
Delegates to SilviLaser typically represent research organizations, universities, agencies, and the private sector.
Please consider attending and submitting an extended abstract to present a paper or a poster. Online abstract submission is to be opened soon, as well as the online registration for all the events of the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2015. Information about abstract submission and guidelines for authors are already available on the SilviLaser website at http://silvilaser2015.teledetection.fr . Abstracts will be due before April 5, 2015.

Subject: Call for papers on Forests and Food Security - reminder deadline 31 January
----- Call for Papers for Special Issue of Environmental Conservation on 'Forests and Food Security' -----
The aim of this thematic issue is to provide a forum for research that explores the different ways in which forests and agroforestry systems can be managed as food provisioning systems, in addition to their existing contributions to the conservation landscape. Potential audiences for this contribution include scholars and policy makers working in forest and related sectors, as well as those working in the areas of food and nutrition security both locally and internationally. A reminder that the deadline for the submission of papers is 31 January 2015. Details are attached.

Coppice forests have been a focal topic in forestry, ecology and nature conservation over the past decades. This short-rotation management system has a long tradition in the temperate regions of Europe and Asia. As a result of its multi-purpose functions, such as biomass production and biodiversity conservation, the importance of coppicing is widely recognized. Today, coppice forests are confronted with new challenges in an economically, climatically and ecologically changing environment. At this interdisciplinary conference, we strive to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss the past, present and future of coppice forests in the world.
Please find attached the revised Second Call for this conference and note that the deadline for abstract submission has been extended to 15 January 2015!
We look forward to welcoming many of you at the conference!
