The IUFRO World Congress is an opportunity for Research Groups and Working Parties not
only to present their scientific results, but also to meet and discuss administrative
matters. Therefore, also during the 2019 Congress in Curitiba, time slots for
administrative meetings (former "business sessions") of Research Groups and
Working Parties will be available.
Dates and timeslots
Sessions will be held on Tuesday, 1st, Wednesday 2nd, Friday 4th and Saturday 5th of
October over the lunch break from 12:00 to 12:50 or 13:00 to 13:50 (two 50-minute blocks)
and also in the evening on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd from 17:30 to 18:20 or 18:30 to
19:20 (two 50-minute blocks). If more time (beyond 50 minutes) is needed, please indicate
that in your request. Requests are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Request
forms must be completed and returned by 10 June 2019.
We would like to inform you that in addition to these administrative meetings (former
"business sessions"), each Division has a fixed time slot to meet for 2.0 hrs.
on Friday, 4 October 17:30 – 19:30 hrs.
How to make a reservation for administrative sessions

Please note that catering can be provided upon request, but related costs have to be borne
by the respective Unit.
Units that might not have succeeded in making their reservation due to potential
constraints in meeting rooms will be put on a waiting list. Should a booked slot be given
up by another Unit, it will be allocated to a Unit on the waiting list (first come, first
serve). However, experience from previous Congresses has shown that many Units will be
represented only by a few scientists. For these Units we would like to strongly recommend
to hold their administrative meetings in a more informal setting.
