Call for Abstracts on Uncertainty: SAF and CIF Joint Meeting

This year the Society of American Foresters (SAF) and the Canadian Institute of Forestry (CIF) will hold their joint annual meeting in conjunction with the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) in Salt Lake City, UT. Two of the presentation themes for the conference are “embracing, and learning from, uncertainty” and “an engineering take on uncertainty: lessons for the forestry profession.” Descriptions of these two tracks are available here. This is an excellent opportunity for those working in forest systems to share their knowledge of uncertainty with a diverse group of scientists and managers

The SAF/CIF conference runs from October 8 – 11, and the deadline for abstract submissions is March 9. The IUFRO conference runs October 5-11; abstract submissions for these sessions are already closed. At IUFRO, QUEST will host a sub-plenary session, two technical sessions, many posters, and an evening discussion. Participants registered for either conference will be admitted to all sessions from October 9-11.

Uncertainty will be prominently featured at the largest forestry meeting of the decade!
