We invite you to the Black Forest for the most important German Forest Science Conference and are looking forward to a lively scientific exchange and discussions. The main topics of the conference include:
• Impact of climate change on forests and adaptation strategies of forestry to climate change
• Biodiversity and Conservation
• Intensity of forest use
• The role of the bio-economy for forestry and forest industries
• Evidence-based forestry for a more objective system understanding
Four to five sessions are offered for each of these topics. The sessions are organized and moderated by colleagues from many forestry research institutions from Germany and abroad. In addition, there will also be a session block with free themes.
You are invited to submit conference contributions in the form of oral presentations and posters. For further information about the program of the Forest Science Conference 2016 see www.fowita.de.
In addition to technical sessions, the award ceremony of the German Forest Science Prize, social events and a number of excursions complement the conference programme.

Forests form the fabric of the landscapes of Wisconsin and the Great Lakes area, influencing generations of foresters and figuring prominently in the cultures, traditions, and economies of the region. Madison is central to a robust Midwestern forestry community that offers a rich history, a legacy of pioneering forestry environmentalism, and an active contemporary forestry industry. It is a vibrant, safe, walkable capital city that is home to the University of Wisconsin and the world-renowned USFS Forest Products Lab.
The 2016 SAF National Convention will explore the rich history of forestry, land stewardship, and the connections that unite all who create, manage, use, and conserve forests and associated resources to meet desired goals, needs, and values.
An international scientific conference of the journal Sustainability under the patronage of the University of Basel, University of the Western Cape, University of Cape Town and the National Research Foundation of the Republic of South Africa.
