New Frontiers in Forecasting Forests 2018

Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS)

September 25, 2018 – September 27, 2018

With support from IUFRO 4.01.00, 4.03 & 5.01.04, the Department of Forest and Wood Science at the University of Stellenbosch is proud to host an international conference on future-focussed forest modelling: New Frontiers in Forecasting Forests 2018.

This meeting will be an international conference to

  • benchmark the state-of-the-art,
  • identify emerging frontiers and
  • explore new innovations and technologies

in models predicting future forest attributes.

An important objective of the meeting is to explore and discuss how new frontiers in forest modelling research can be implemented to empower decision makers and deliver impact, particularly in the context of changing international climate and market conditions.

The scientific committee identified the following key themes for the conference:

  • Understanding and evaluating uncertainties in model forecasts and how to predict inherently uncertain events
  • The nexus between models of tree growth, wood formation and product properties
  • Model application, integration and accessibility for forest management and planning
  • The cutting edge in process-based and statistical approaches: how we will model future forest attributes in the 3rd millennium
  • Leveraging big data and high technology in forest models




Dr David Drew and the Department of Forest & Wood Science at Stellenbosch University, on behalf of the Organising and Scientific Committee,┬ácordially invite you to attend "New Frontiers in Forecasting Forests" to be held in Stellenbosch in September 2018!
