Dear colleagues of Division 9,
you already received the invitation to submit proposals for the 125
anniversary conference of IUFRO to be held in Freiburg 2017.
As announced earlier, our all Division 9 meeting will take place in the
framework of this conference. Our meeting will comprise a sub-plenary
session, a Division 9 working meeting (to discuss as well organizational
issues) and hopefully many sessions organized and supported by you as
Division 9 office holders and members. We are also about to plan a
summer school for PhD students back to back with the meeting. It is an
unique opportunity that we can have our own meeting within this
conference, allowing us strengthening the collaboration between the
different groups in Division 9 but as well with groups from the other
Divisions. Please make use of this great opportunity, so that we all can

ideas on social scientific forest issues.
