2021 Western Mensurationists Meeting
Happening virtually! Submit abstracts by April 15, 2021, and stay tuned about more details!
As announced at the end of 2020, the initially planned Tri-Society Meeting [Western, Southern, and Northern Mensurationists] has been postponed to 2022. The 2021 Western Mensurationists Meeting will be virtual, and is hosted by the University of British Columbia on June 21 and 22, 2021. These dates are a week earlier from what was announced last summer. Please mark your calendars with the new dates!
The theme for the Monday morning session will be “Linking growth models with remote sensing data” and is sponsored by IUFRO Unit 4.01.02 “Growth models for tree and stand simulation”.
We are still figuring out the details for the meeting. For example, we anticipate that there will be longer talks (15-25 minutes) and shorter talks (5-10 minutes). We are also thinking about how to best organize opportunities to network and connect with other participants. As students, postdocs, and young professionals are the ones hit the hardest by the lack of in-person meetings, we are thinking of possibly assigning new participants with some old-timers as mentors. There will be morning and afternoon sessions on both Monday and Tuesday to still have 1.5 days of Western Mens talks as usual, with Monday morning taken by the IUFRO theme. The business meeting will most likely be during the lunch on Tuesday. We aim to post the agenda by the end of April.
Abstract submission is open till April 15, 2021. We welcome submissions around any area that is related to forestry measurements, modelling, inventory, growth and yield, planning, analysis, etc. or that fits with the theme of the IUFRO session. Please submit your abstract here: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bfj2jl1bpr7nNBQ
Once the registration is open, we will send out another announcement.
Looking forward to seeing you all virtually in June!
