    UFRO 125th Anniversary Congress September 2017 in Freiburg, Germany

    Call for Sessions Proposals


    The Congress Scientific Committee (CSC) invites submissions of session proposals for the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) 125th Anniversary Congress, September 2017, in Freiburg, Germany.

    In keeping with the congress title – "Interconnecting Forests, Science and People" – we invite proposals on all subjects related to forest research worldwide. This congress provides a platform for the exchange of science knowledge across the full range of forest and forest-related topics and scientific disciplines.

    Recognizing that forests need to be seen in connection with other environmental and human systems, the CSC welcomes session proposals highlighting innovative research and interdisciplinary research approaches of relevance to forests. Moreover, sessions focusing on the transfer of scientific knowledge on critical global forest-related challenges to national and international political agendas are also encouraged.

    Participation in the special IUFRO Congress is open to all individuals with an interest in forest science. Proposals can be submitted online at http://iufro2017.com/call-for-session

    The deadline for submission of proposals is 15 June, 2016.

    Call for SymposiumTo promote collaboration and interdisciplinary dialogue, we invite you to propose symposia with specific topics. Proposals are encouraged to address the congress theme, if appropriate, but doing so is not necessary. Any timely and coherent subject of broad ecological interests will be considered. We also welcome proposals that explore interdisciplinary connections with areas of social and natural science outside of ecology. Each symposium should have 8 to 10 speakers (15 min. presentations plus 5 min. discussions). The content of symposium should follow the form given in the attachment. The deadline for symposium submission is May 1, 2016.
    » Please submit your proposals to intecol2017@rcees.ac.cn and liding@rcees.ac.cn. The Congress Scientific Committee (CSC) will evaluate the symposium proposals and participants will be required to submit abstracts afterwards.
