XIV World Forestry Congress - Abstracts deadline extended

Abstract deadline extended until 6 February

Share your people-centred ideas, field experiences, cutting-edge research, development projects, practical applications and theoretical models at the world's largest and most important gathering of the forest sector.

The XIV World Forestry Congress will take place 7-11 September 2015 in Durban, South Africa and will be a key occasion for the world's foresters and forest supporters to gather, to share their expertise and experience, and to project a new vision for the future of forests and forestry.

We welcome abstracts for papers, posters and - for the first time - video presentations on the central theme of the Congress, "Forests and People: Investing in a Sustainable Future", and on relevant topics that also align with any of the six Congress sub-themes.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and hope to see you in Durban!
