I. About IUFRO and the IUFRO World Congress


How can I volunteer for the event?

Visit: http://congress-2014.iufro.org/registration/volunteer-information/. We will begin accepting volunteer applications in February 2014.

International Forestry Student Association (IFSA) students should contact Lisa Hansen at hansen.lisa.c@gmail.com, Head of IFSA-IUFRO World Congress Commission, about IFSA-specific volunteer opportunities.

Who are SAF and CIF and how are they involved?

The Society of American Foresters challenges landowners, decisionmakers and society-at-large to make choices about our forests based on professional knowledge, leading-edge thinking and a century of practical experience. SAF seeks viable pathways forward, balancing diverse demands on our natural resources and sets the standard in forest management, bringing science, best practice and the best people together to actively shape the future of the profession. With a focus on thriving forests, essential resources and a strong community, SAF unites 12,000 members, representing all U.S. states and from 60 different countries.

The Canadian Institute of Forestry/l’Institut Forestier du Canada (CIF/IFC) is the national voice of forest practitioners. Formed in 1908, the Institute represents foresters, forest technologists and technicians, ecologists, biologists, geographers, educators, scientists and many others with a professional interest in forestry. Through membership and partnerships (i.e. registered professional foresters and forest and natural resource technicians and technologists), the Institute networks some 10,000 interdisciplinary forest practitioners and professionals, as well as a significant contingent of the environmentally conscious public. The Institute’s mission is to provide national leadership in forestry, promote competence among forestry professionals, and foster public awareness of Canadian and international forestry issues.

These events are co-located, sharing one joint plenary session (Thursday, October 9) and a robust trade exposition. Registrants are free to attend any scientific session offered by any of the three organizations from Thursday, October 9 to Saturday, October 11, 2014.

Who should attend this event?

Anyone with an interest in forests and forest-related resources, especially those in research and education.

Delegates will come from a variety of backgrounds and will include senior and junior scientists, graduate students and others interested in and conducting research. Other delegates will be decision makers, policy makers and land managers wanting to expand their knowledge.

Exhibitors will include scientific publishers, forest industries, manufacturers, recreation outfitters, scientific tools and equipment providers, technology providers, and much more.

We will also offer an accompanying persons program for those that chose to bring family members or traveling companions.

In-Congress scientific tours will occur on Wednesday, October 8 and all paid registrants are able to participate. Tours will visit some of Utah’s most scenic areas. Some will focus on specific topics, like forest health, while others will offer insights into a diversity of research and resource issues and may include cultural stops.

When will the final scientific program be available?

A preliminary program that includes the titles and presenting authors for each sub-plenary, technical, and poster session will be available on the Congress website in June 2014.

The final program, including the full schedule of sessions and locations, will be not be available until late September 2014. Delegates – and presenters in particular - should therefore plan to attend the entire week of the Congress.

Yes, you may have a PowerPoint presentation to supplement your oral presentation. For more information and guidelines about being an oral presenter, visit the Presentation Guidelines page. You may also download the information here.

Can I present a paper and a poster?

Yes, authors can do both, but are subject to a maximum number of 2 presented oral presentations and 5 presented poster presentations. There is no limit to how many papers and posters you can be listed as a co-author on.

Can I present in more than one session?

In order to give as many colleagues as possible an opportunity to present their work at the Congress, the number of abstracts that can be accepted for a presenting author (i.e., the author or co-author who will actually make the presentation during the Congress, designated on the abstract submission form) will be strictly limited to 2 per person (and 1 for a single session).

Duplicate (or very similar) abstracts submitted to different sessions will not be accepted, so authors should take care to select the most appropriate session for their submissions.

For poster presentations, the maximum number of submissions and possible acceptances for a presenting author is 5 per person.

How do I submit my abstract?

Abstracts are no longer being accepted for the congress.

How is my abstract evaluated?

Primary selection criteria include scientific quality, topical significance, and relevance to the Congress themes and to the particular session to which the abstract is submitted.

Authors will be notified on or before 15 December 2013 if their abstract has been accepted or declined.

Presenting authors of accepted abstracts must complete their registration for the Congress by 30 April 2014 to ensure their place on the program. Failure to register by this date will automatically result in the removal of the presenting author’s abstract (and presentation) from the Congress program.

Student registration fees are available for students who can provide proof of their student status. Students who volunteer for a minimum of 16 hours are eligible for a refund of registration fees, upon completion of their volunteer duties.

Are there any scholarships available?

The deadline for all scholarship applications have passed.

The Scientist Assistance Program is designed support of scientists from developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Experiences from previous world Congresses show that such a support program is very competitive as many scientists will apply for sponsorship. There will be only very few approvals for each country, therefore it would be advisable to also seek support from other sources such as national foundations/governmental schemes in order to avoid disappointment if the IUFRO application is unsuccessful.Students may apply for the Student/Recent Graduate Scholarship. Scholarship winners will be notified in early June 2014.

No. If your visa is still valid you can travel to the U.S. with your two passports, as long as the visa is valid, not damaged, and is the appropriate type of visa required for your principal purpose of travel.

How can I find out how long I am authorized to stay in the U.S.?

The visa in your passport gives you the permission to request admission to the U.S. The Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials have authority to permit or deny admission to the United States, and determine how long a traveler may stay. If you are allowed to enter the U.S., the CBP official will determine the length of your visit. In most cases, the duration of status will correspond with the nature of your visit.

What happens if I am refused a U.S. visa and have already registered for the IUFRO conference?
