The Symposium “Forestry Mechanization" (from 1994 named with the acronym “FORMEC”) was held for the first time in 1966 at Zvolen in former Czechoslovakia. The original idea of the organizers of this scientific meeting was to give an opportunity for scientists from Eastern and Central European countries to gather, discuss about forest engineering matters, deepen the knowledge in that field of science and overcome gaps due to different technology levels.

The main goals of FORMEC are:

  1. Combining experience from worldwide scientists, researchers and practitioners in forest operations and planning on close-to-nature principles.
  2. Encourage cooperation, gather knowledge and improve exchange of information in forestry profession and science.

Prof. Dr. Raffaele Cavalli (University of Padua, Italy)
Prof. Dr. Hans Rudolf Heinimann (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich, Switzerland)
Prof. Dr. Tadeusz Moskalik (Warsaw Agricultural University, Poland)
Prof. Dr. Tibor Pentek (University of Zagreb, Croatia)
Prof. Dr. Karl Stampfer (University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna, Austria)
Prof. Dr. Rien Visser (University of Canterbury, New Zealand)

49 meetings have been held so far in 16 different European countries. After the symposium in Poland in the year 2016, the next meeting is planned to be in Romania.
