Poster Symposium


The Poster Symposium has been designed to showcase a wide range of projects and programs through current research and field trials, practical applications and innovations, education and outreach and new ideas outside the mainstream of academia and forest practice. Each Symposium is an organized group of 6 to 10 posters around a specific topic and displayed together in the poster area in the Exhibit Hall.

Each poster presenter is assigned a specific time slot to summarize the poster and participate in a moderated question and answer session.
