Due to the continued uncertainties created by the pandemic, we have made the decision, like many other events in 2021, to move the IBFRA 2021 Conference to an entirely online format.

This year's conference is all virtual, so you can share your research with an international community of scientists, policy makers, managers and other stakeholders of the boreal biome, directly from anywhere. You can apply for an oral or a poster presentation to one of this year's twelve sessions.

Abstracts are due before February 1st, 2021. Earlier submissions are encouraged.

Abstracts should contribute to the conference theme: "a changing boreal biome: assessing the vulnerability and resilience of boreal ecosystems to climate change and their socio-economic implications". A list of sessions have been developed by the Conference Committee members and external contributors. Sessions are covering topics such as the effect of climate and disturbances on ecosystem vulnerability to change, and the consequences of these changes on ecosystem services, from carbon sequestration, to wood production and management, to permafrost and hydrology and to people subsistence and economy. Depending on the abstracts we receive, adjustments may be made to the current list of sessions.
