2nd IUFRO Division 3 Doctoral Student Conference

Corvallis, Oregon, USA; NEW DATE IN 2022 TO BE ANNOUNCED!

Students, mark you calendars!

IUFRO Division 3 and Oregon State University will again host a Doctoral Student Conference in Corvallis, Oregon, USA. Encouraged by the grand success of the first IUFRO Division 3 Doctoral Student Conference in 2016, the host team again aims to foster networking and a strong global community of future research scientists in the fields of Forest Operations and Engineering.

The Conference will be student-oriented and provide a platform for attendees to present their research. Registration includes participation in the COFE-FORMEC Joint Annual Meeting, September 27-30, 2021 where student attendees can present their study in a lightning talk and poster.

Conference attendees will have many opportunities to network, share insights, advance their knowledge, and make new friends. Designed for youthful and energetic future research scientists, the conference will offer many socializing events. Guided field trips will also be offered to visit coastal and central Oregon, and OSU’s Research Forest.

About Unit

Forest operations engineering and management research aims at (1) understanding the fundamental principles that underlie the behavior of forest operations systems and at (2) developing concepts, methods and tools that support the design, control and management of these systems.

The basic research paradigm represents operations systems as flow networks and uses mathematical models to describe its behavior and to evaluate the efficiency, effectiveness and environmental performance of alternate policies, strategies, and practices. The operations core is a system that includes research, design, engineering, production within operating units, networks of information and material flows that tie operating units together, and the development, distribution and delivery of goods and services to customers.
