The conference is also up on our IUFRO website at

IUFRO-sponsored 2nd Restoring Forests Congress to be held 14-16 October 2014 in Lafayette, Indiana USA (Purdue University).

The 1st Restoring Forests (Sep 2011 in Madrid) was a successful, well attended event that resulted in a double special issue in New Forests ( In building upon this momentum, this 2nd symposium promises to be another exceptional symposium! The theme of the congress is "What constitutes success in the 21st Century?". We will examine the continued evolution of the scope of forest restoration and re-explore the need to set realistic goals to achieve restoration success. Field tours will highlight the ongoing forest restoration research of the Hardwood Tree Improvement and Regeneration Center (<>) at Purdue University, featuring especially the role of genetics in ecological restoration.

We will have a wide variety of invited speakers as well as volunteer oral and poster presentations. Selected papers from the congress will once again be published in a special issue of New Forests.
