3.00.00 - Forest Operations Engineering and Management

UNIT NOTICEBOARD

2022-10-20

3rd International Hybrid Symposium of Forest Engineering and Technologies (FETEC 2022)

"Forest Transportation Solutions and IT Applications for Natural Disaster Management"
online and Baku, Azerbaijan; 28-29 November 2022. Units involved: 3.00.00, 3.01.00

As one of the most important natural resources, forests have vital functions such as improving biodiversity, preserving soil, protecting water, and providing services to society. In order to maintain these functions, forest should be planned and managed by considering social, economic, ecological, and sociocultural factors. In recent years, natural disasters caused by abiotic factors result in serious biological and ecological damages on forest ecosystems while threatening the human life. The most effective natural disasters may include forest fires, winter storms, floods, landslides, and avalanches.

In order to minimize the detrimental effects of natural disasters, advanced information technologies (ITs) such as GIS, RS, ICT, IoT, etc. should be used in planning and implementing of natural disaster management activities. Besides, forest roads, providing important benefits of accessing forest areas, should be designed and constructed considering the natural disasters.

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.
