Virtual Conference: ForwardFORESTs (2005-2006)
ForwardFORESTs is an initiative, which started on 15 April 2005 and is finishing on 30 June 2006. The objective of the conference is the analysis of ecological, technological, environmental and societal effects on the future development of forests, focusing on Central European forests. The result of the conference consists in the identification and evaluation of trends as information basis for a wise and sustainable management and development of forest systems. We want to address especially young scientists - the "second growth", female scientists and partners from SME and invite them to present their ideas on topics of ForwardFORESTs. The Scientific Steering Committee will launch thematically blocked publications in internationally approved journals with impact factor, such as European Journal for Forest Research, Forest Ecology and Management, Annals of Forest Science.Organised by:University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences, Vienna, AustriaUniversity of Leipzig, GermanyDresden University of Technology, GermanyCzech University of Agriculture Prague, Czech Republichttp
