We’re happy to announce that our post-meeting content page is up on our site at
https://www.uvm.edu/femc/cooperative/conference/2018/content. There, you can access video recordings and presentations from most of the talks at the conference, as well as view the posters
presented during our poster session, so if you missed something, check it out or refer back to it for the points you missed. We are hard at work developing the proceedings from the conference, including executive summaries of the morning sessions and the working
sessions, so stay tuned for that.
We are offering a 30-minute webinar on
Wednesday, November 28th, at 11 am to introduce the content, benefits, and search capabilities of the DEN.
The mission of the DendroEcological Network (DEN) is to provide an online repository for dendrochronological and associated forest ecology data, as well as offer a cyberinfrastructure for the discovery, exploration, and sharing of that
data. Using this portal, users can find data on over 4000 cores (and counting!) from 2500 trees across multiple projects, making it easier and faster to integrate data across projects and answer key questions about how our region’s trees are growing.

special working sessions in the afternoon (and it’s still not too late to
propose one of your own!). We will continue to provide updates to the agenda on this page, so check back often. We are in the process of requesting SAF Continuing Forestry Education credits for this conference, last year, we were able to offer 4.5 CFE credits.
In addition, registration for the conference is now open at
https://www.uvm.edu/femc/cooperative/conference/2018/register. Registration costs $23 per person ($21 when you register in a group of 3 or more). When you register, we ask which afternoon working group session you expect to attend, and if you plan to attend
the afternoon social hour and poster session. Your answers to these questions are non-binding but important, as they will allow us to plan for the appropriate numbers at each event. Thank you in advance.
The Dean's Office of the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources has generously provided funds for 20 complimentary registrations for graduate students available on a first-come first-served basis.
John Truong to request a free graduate student registration.
For parking information please see:
http://www.uvm.edu/~tpswww/parking/visitor/ and plan to park in the Gutterson parking garage, as there won’t be enough space in the Jeffords lot. Those of you driving Vermont State and Federal vehicles may park in non-metered spaces without a permit.
If you have any questions about the conference or any issues registering, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to seeing you at the conference on December 14th!
