Betreff: Call for papers on the topic of "Understanding Forest Health
under Increasing Climate and Trade Challenges: Social System Considerations"
Working Party 7.03.15 "Social Dimensions of Forest Health" would like to
announce a call for papers on the topic of "Understanding Forest Health
under Increasing Climate and Trade Challenges: Social System Considerations"
for a special issue of Forestry. Abstract is below and further details can
be found here:
Forest health is increasingly influenced by climate change as well as
growing globalization and trade. Climate change results in species movement
and species that have earlier had more limited impacts can potentially
spread and gain impact under changing conditions. However, through the large
plant trade and inadvertent movement of species (such as pests or fungi in
soil) forest health is increasingly impacted by species not only originating
in nearby areas but also from far away areas of the globe. As a result, new
forest plant risks may occur that have largely been unprecedented, and with
a potential that has been little managed so far in legislation and policy
that may be more oriented towards supporting free trade. This special issue
highlights the social system considerations around forest health: the ways
in which specific legislative and policy systems, at the national, regional
or local level, aim at regulating or managing increasing forest pest or
invasive species risks and outbreak events, and the ways in which policy
instruments, technologies or means of interaction, routines or engagement
can be developed to manage plant pest and invasive species. This special
issue thereby illustrates the possibilities and limitations in specific
socio-economic and political systems to manage and limit the impacts of
increasing challenges to forest health under climate change and
Deadline for manuscript submissions is 15 November 2018!

Call for Participation in the 4th International Congress on Planted Forests
The International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO), in
partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
(FAO) and the State Forestry and Grassland Administration of China (SFGA),
is convening the 4th International Congress on Planted Forests at the China
National Convention Centre (CNCC), Beijing, China on October 23-25, 2018,
with optional post Congress excursions on October 26-27 with two routes, one
for the conservation planted forests in North China and one for the
industrial planted forests in South China. The Congress is organized by the
Chinese Academy of Forestry (CAF), the national research institution on
forestry in China.
The 4th International Congress on Planted Forests aims to investigate the
contribution of planted forests to green development in the context of
global changes. Topics include the sustainability of planted forests in the
context of changing climates and the future role of planted forests in
bio-resources sustainability, environmental protection and green
development. The Congress will also be a space of interface between
scientific communities, wider society and government policy initiatives
related to planted forests.
The 4th International Congress on Planted Forests will arrange 2 plenary
keynote presentations, 8 sub-plenary invited presentations, around 40
parallel technical sessions with around 240 oral presentations as well as
quite a number of poster presentations.
The 4th International Congress on Planted Forests is calling for submission
of session proposals and abstracts, as well as registration for
(1) Submission for session proposals: May 31, 2018 (with flexibility of
submission a week later if prior communication with the Congress Secretariat
(2) Submission for abstracts: July 15, 2018.
(3) Early-bird registration: July 31, 2018.
Immediately after the 4th International Congress on Planted Forests, there
will be also the 60's anniversary celebration of the Chinese Academy of
Forestry and associated international workshop in Beijing, China on October
Please find as attached herewith the Congress Announcement.

Betreff: Call for papers - Special Issue on Decision Support to Address Multiple Ecosystem Services in Forest Management Planning
IUFRO Units 4.04.04—Sustainable Forest Management Scheduling, IUFRO Unit 4.03—Informatics, Modelling, and Statistics and IUFRO Unit 4.03.03. Information management and information technologies are sponsoring a Special Issue of Forests (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/forests) on Decision Support to Address Multiple Ecosystem Services in Forest Management Planning
We welcome the submission of manuscripts for publication in this Forests special issue (SI). This SI aims at contributing to our understanding of how we can enhance forest management planning, in integrating a wide range of ecosystem services (ES) and assuring a sustainable supply (e.g. products and services listed in the Millenium Ecosystem Assessment). We welcome manuscripts that focus on 1) models to help forest managers check the impact of management options on the provision of ES, 2) methods to help forest managers develop plans targeting the supply of ES, 3) methods to help forest managers analyze tradeoﬀs between a multitude of ES, 4) methods to help forest managers assess the sensitivity of the supply of ecosystem services to uncertain parameters, 5) multiple criteria decision support systems and 6) approaches to map the demand for ES and the quality and quantity of ES supply. Papers submitted for publication in this Special Issue will undergo a rigorous peer review process with the aim of prompt and wide dissemination of research results and applications.
