NAFEW 2017 June 19-22 2017

The 11th North American Forest Ecology Workshop (NAFEW) will be held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada June 19 – 22, 2017.

The conference is being hosted by the University of Alberta. The theme of NAFEW 2017 will be: Sustaining Forests from Restoration to Conservation. The conference will include one-day in-conference field trips to see both natural and industrial landscapes.

We have confirmed four keynote speakers.  See the Agenda page for details.

Twelve Special Sessions have already been accepted for inclusion in the program.  A description of these sessions is provided on the Agenda page.

Several in-conference tours are being planned for Wednesday June 21, and will provide opportunities to explore a range of topics relating to forest ecology.

Post-conference tours to Fort McMurray to learn about Oilsands activities and reclamation, to Lac La Biche and environs to learn about poplar management, and to the Rocky Mountains are being planned.

The deadline for abstract submission was January 31, 2017.  We are currently reviewing abstracts and will soon be contacting presenters.

More information, including information on the conference venue, registration fees, accommodation, and abstract submission will be posted as it becomes available.
