The 10th IUFRO International Workshop on Uneven-aged Silviculture
Little Rock, Arkansas, USA • 31 May–2 June 2016

Call for Papers

The Workshop will feature oral presentations and poster presentations on the science, history, and practice of uneven-aged silviculture. Topics will emphasize the science underlying uneven-aged silviculture, and will also explore the artistic elements of uneven-aged silvicultural practice--however the authors may choose to interpret that). Organizers anticipate that some presentations and posters will attempt to highlight how the science and the art of uneven-aged silviculture can be successfully blended together.

Authors have been notified about acceptance of papers and posters. Contact conference organizer Jim Guldin if you have questions.


Presentations should be prepared using Microsoft Power Point versions 2010 or 2013 on a Windows 7 platform.

Authors should consider the option to send a short 3-5 slide test PowerPoint presentation by email to Jim Guldin from now until May 10 2016, to determine whether the presentation will be compatible on the conference computer systems.

Completed presentations can be provided to conference organizers as follows:

  1. Email the completed presentation to Jim Guldin on or before Friday, 27 May 2016.
  2. Completed presentations can be given to the staff at the registration table at the meeting on Monday, 30 May or Tuesday, 31 May, on a USB drive.

NOTE: Details are being finalized regarding the publication of manuscripts based on presentations at the meeting in a special issue of the journal, Forestry, as has been done with several previous IUFRO 1.05.00 meetings. An update on this will be forthcoming.


Posters should be prepared to fit on a 4-ft x 4-ft (1.2-m x 1.2-m) display board in either portrait or landscape format, as the authors choose. Poster authors are encouraged to bring 1-page miniature posters on 8.5”x11” paper or A5 size paper to share with participants.

NOTE: Poster submissions are still being considered, and will be considered through May 1, 2016. Interested authors should submit a poster abstract to Gary Kerr for a review decision.
