In collaboration with the University of Chile’s Institute of Complex System’s Engineering and the SuFoRun Consortium, the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences’ Precision Forestry Coop is co-organizing the 18th Symposium on Systems Analysis in Forest Resources (SSAFR) for the second time. This year’s Symposium will be held in Chile’s Lake District in Puerto Varas on March 3-7.
“The Symposium has served as a premier international forum for systems analysts, operations researchers and management scientists who study forestry, natural resource management and environmental problems since 1975.” says Sandor Tóth, associate professor at the School and executive director of SSAFR.
This biannual event was last held in Suquamish, Washington in 2017. The Symposium itself will feature discussions and presentations on forest harvest scheduling, optimal reserve site selection, wildfire management, forest transportation and supply chain optimization, bioenergy logistics, invasive species and wildlife management, forest decision support systems, forest economics and other related areas.
