 Learn more about the College of Forestry

The 1st IUFRO Division 3 Doctoral Student Conference aims to foster a community among doctoral students in forest operations/engineering that encourages sharing knowledge, professionalism, and collaboration. The entire conference is student oriented, where attendees will have ample opportunity to present their doctoral research work and receive feedback from peers. Designed for young, smart, and energetic researchers, this event will be anything but boring. Time has been reserved for field trips to OSU McDonald Dunn Forests, tours to the Oregon Coast, and lots of socializing (including sampling the many fine Oregon microbrews). Regardless of your hectic summer schedule, don't miss out on this opportunity! Only 20 students wil be admitted to this exclusive event. We look forward to receiving your abstract submission and hope to see you in Oregon in August!

Requirements: If you are accepted for attendance at this event, it will be required that you give a 30-minute oral presentation, in English, about your current doctoral research. You will also be required to bring a printed poster (English) that details your research. Posters should be no larger than 4x6 feet. More information about each of these will be sent to you with your notification of acceptance.
