9th Scientific Conference of ICP Forests 2020

8. June - 10. June

The International Co-operative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests (ICP Forests) under the UNECE Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution is pleased to announce the

9th Scientific Conference of ICP Forests 2020
Forest Monitoring to assess Forest Functioning under Air Pollution and Climate Change

to be held at the Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL, Switzerland, on 8-10 June 2020.

The goal of the 9th ICP Forests Scientific Conference 2020 is to highlight the extensive ICP Forests data series on forest growth, phenology, biodiversity, nutritional status of foliage and litter fall, ambient air quality, deposition, meteorology, soil and crown condition. We combine novel modeling and assessment approaches and integrate long-term trends to assess air pollution and climate effects on European forests and related ecosystem services. Latest results and conclusions from local scale to European scale studies will be presented and discussed.
The 9th ICP Forests Scientific Conference will be complemented by the 2020 Summer School FORMON Forest Monitoring to assess Forest Functioning under Air Pollution and Climate Change” taking place in Davos, Switzerland, on 23-29 August 2020.

The 2020 Summer School FORMON is supported by ICP Forests, the SwissForestLab and the European Network for Forest Research and higher Education NFZ.forestnet. It aims to provide students an in-depth understanding of the concepts, approaches, and available data infrastructure of long-term forest monitoring.

Students are particular encouraged to attend both the 9th ICP Forests Scientific Conference and the 2020 Summer School FORMON. They will receive a 50% discount on the conference and the post-conference excursion fees.
