THE IUFRO INCUBATOR Student and Young Scientist Sessions

Call for abstracts 

The IUFRO World Congress is pleased to announce a special call for abstracts for the IUFRO Incubator Session – aimed specifically for graduate students and recent graduates to present a summary of their BSc, MSc or PhD thesis work. The call for abstracts will be open from 12 February to 20 March 2014.

Submitted abstracts should address one or more of the following session themes:
– Forest inventory and modelling,
– Forest ecology, biodiversity and silviculture,
– Forest health, tree physiology and genetics,
– Forest operations, engineering, products, biomass and bioenergy,
– Forest policy, social aspects and economics.

Submit your title, abstract and an indication of the preferred session using the IUFRO Incubator Abstract Submission Form and send it via e-mail to IncubatorIUFRO(at) no later than 20 March 2014. Acceptance letters will be issued by 20 April 2014. Note that we accept only one submission per presenting author.

Abstracts and power-point slides for presentation should be in English, but the oral presentation at the congress may be delivered in Spanish, French or German (official IUFRO languages). All incubator abstracts will be made available electronically for download through the Congress website and on a cd for Congress participants. Submission of an abstract implies consent by the author(s) to have the abstract published by the Congress.

All presenting authors are required to register for the Congress by 30 April 2014. Failure to do so will mean that the presentation will be deleted from the program.

Questions about the incubator sessions should be directed to IncubatorIUFRO(at)
