Call for Papers

New Frontiers in Forecasting Forests 2018 is now accepting abstracts for oral presentations/posters.  The closing date for submissions has been extended to the end of March 2018!

Please see the Author Guidelines for more information about preparing abstracts.  If you are logged in, you can download a template of the abstract here (or if you have trouble, you can use this link: to get an idea of the format required (note this file will show as *.dotx but can be opened from within MS Word).  Submissions do not need to conform to the exact structure, or contain all sections, shown in the template, and abstracts can be shorter than (but not exceeding) 1000 words.  But we do request that you use the template to ensure the formatting is consistent between submissions.   If you have any questions about the process, please contact Mr Anton Kunneke.

Please note: we are considering creating a special issue in the international forestry journal Annals of Forest Science and would like to scope interest.  Please contact Dr David Drew or indicate in your submission if you would or would not like your paper to be considered by the Scientific Committee for this special issue.
