Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the First International Electronic Conference on Forests (IECF2020) (https://sciforum.net/conference/IECF2020), to be held from 15–30 November 2020. We are looking forward to seeing you at our event. The Special Issue will publish selected papers from the Proceedings volume associated with our event on sciforum.net, an online platform for hosting scholarly e-conferences and discussion groups.

Through IECF2020, we aim to promote and advance the exciting and rapidly changing field of forestry and forest ecology. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Forest Ecology, Management and Restoration;
  2. Forest Genetics, Ecophysiology and Biology;
  3. Forests and Urban Forest Sustainability;
  4. Forest Inventory, Quantitative Methods and Remote Sensing;
  5. Wood Science, Production Chains and Fuelwood;
  6. Forest Operations and Engineering;
  7. Fire Risks and Other Natural Hazards.

The papers that will be considered for publication are those that attract the most interest on the web or that provide innovative contributions. These papers will be subject to peer review, and are published with the aim of the rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications. We hope this conference series will grow rapidly in the future, and become recognized as a new venue and way in which to present new developments related to the field of forests. The scientific committee cordially welcome you all, and we look forward to your contributions.
