48th International Symposium on Forestry Mechanization, 04. - 08. October 2015, Linz (Austria)
BOKU will host the 48th International Symposium on Forestry Mechanization from October 4 - 8, 2015 in Linz (Austria).
FORMEC will bring together researchers, practitioners and government officials from different countries to share state-of-the-art knowledge of harvesting operations, with a focus on steep terrain. The meeting consists of a two day technical conference on new developments in forest engineering, followed by an optional one or two-day visit to AUSTROFOMA machine exhibition to watch innovative harvesting technology.
The conference venue has provisionally made 120 rooms available for conference participants. The Courtyard Linz Hotel will hold this block booking until 08/23/15. Advanced reservation is highly recommended since the blocking is limited.
As an alternative accommodation we can recommend Hotel ibis Linz City which is at a distance of 1.5 km from the conference venue.
BOKU is pleased to announce an initiative that aims to encourage a very high standard of written contributions to the FORMEC 2015 Conference Proceedings. The Scientific Committee will review all papers received by the deadline of 31 August 2015 and the three overall best papers will receive an 800 Euro award to be presented at the meeting.
