The Forest Engineering Network


For more than 50 years, FORMEC has kept bringing together researchers, practitioners and government officials from different countries to share state-of-the-art knowledge about harvesting operations, with a focus on steep terrain. This year‘s meeting consists of a one-day pre-tour and a two day technical conference on new developments in forest engineering. The event is organized back-to-back with AUSTROFOMA: BOKU will organize optional transportation for those who wish to move few hours North and visit the iconic Austrian show.

The main conference topics are:

  • Harvesting Systems
  • Forest Operations Planning Issues
  • Ergonomics and Worker Safety
  • Environmental Impacts
  • Digitalization and Automation
  • Business, Workforce and Education
  • Biomass and Bioenergy
  • Precision Technology and Remote Sensing
  • Supply Chain and Transportation Logistics
  • Wildfires and Forest Operations
