IUFRO Eucalypt Conference 2015 - Call for Abstract

2015-11-30 11:44:14        view:365


A series of plenary sessions will comprise presentations made by invited speakers and other selected speakers. These will be followed by concurrent sessions covering key topics including: genetics and breeding; evaluating ecological and social benefits; silviculture and management; forest health and nutrition; and, wood technology.

A final plenary session will be conducted to highlight and discuss key issues identified during the Conference, and their implications for future research priorities, management and policy. These will be summarized in a communiqué which we hope will be of value to all concerned with the continued development of a sustainable eucalypt plantation resource.

The conference will welcome voluntary contributions addressing any of the following topics:

  • ecological and social aspects;
  • genetics and breeding technologies;
  • silviculture and management;
  • forest health and nutrition;
  • wood technology and utilization.

Contributions can be provided as either oral presentations or as posters. The scientific committee reserves the right to decide which voluntary presentations can be presented as posters and which can be presented orally.

Presenters of voluntary papers will be allocated up to 20 minutes, including questions.

Significant time will be scheduled for an engaging poster session to ensure that participants will have good opportunities for discussions with authors. Posters will remain on display for most of the conference.

All abstracts for oral presentations and posters will be posted on the Conference website which will be maintained for a minimum of 2 years after the event.

Interested authors are encouraged to submit full-papers of their work to reputable journals for publication.
