Dear Mailing List Members:
As at past IUFRO World Congresses, there will be the opportunity to honour
special scientific performances and achievements with selected IUFRO Awards
in the Seoul Congress in 2010.
If you know scientists doing outstanding forest research, nominate them for
one of the IUFRO Awards and give them the opportunity to travel to and
participate in the Congress as well as the chance to present their research
to the Congress participants.
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 is 31 July 2009.
