IUFRO World Congress – call for session proposals

The International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) will host the XXIV IUFRO World Congress in Salt Lake City October 5-11, 2014. The Congress will highlight the contributions forest science is making to address the world’s environmental, social, and economic challenges.

The Scientific Committee for the World Congress is now accepting proposals for technical sessions that address one or more of the following themes: Forests for People; Forest Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services; Forests and Climate Change; Forest and Water Interaction; Forest Biomass and Bioenergy; Forests and Forest Products for a Greener Future; Forest Health in a Changing World.

All who share an interest in the future of forests and forest science are invited to submit session proposals. Session proposals from non-IUFRO member organizations are encouraged although preference will be given to those that are prepared jointly with IUFRO Divisional units and Task Forces. Proposals should be submitted no later than April 30, 2013 using the Session Proposal Form available at www.iufro2014.com.
