The Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative (FEMC) is pleased to announce that submissions for presentations, posters and working sessions are now being accepted for the 2019 Conference. The conference takes place on Friday, December 13th, 2019, at the University of Vermont, and this year’s theme is "Monitoring for Impacts of Climate Change: Tracking and measuring outcomes in northeastern forests". Full conference details are available at https://www.uvm.edu/femc/cooperative/conference/2019. We encourage you to consider contributing a presentation and/or poster about your work. Guidelines and submission forms can be found online at https://www.uvm.edu/femc/cooperative/conference/2019/paper_call, and submissions are due October 20th.

All accepted abstracts will be published online as a part of the 2019 Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative Conference Proceedings (check out last year’s proceedings). We also provide the opportunity for participant-led working sessions in the afternoon, where you can convene collaborators to focus on a topic of your design. If you are interested in proposing a working session, you can learn more and submit your idea at https://www.uvm.edu/femc/cooperative/conference/2019/work_session. Working sessions are approved on a rolling basis until we run out of rooms or November 8th, whichever comes first. FEMC staff are happy to discuss session ideas before submission if that is helpful.
