International Conference in Gerardmer in 2014

5th Forest Engineering Conference
Forest engineering : propelling the forest value chain

23-26 September

Gerardmer, France


The ONF (Office National des Forêts), partner of the 5th edition of the international conference on forest engineering (Forest Engineering Conference) announces this major international event to be held in September 2014 in Gérardmer.

The FEC is an open forum for researchers and practitioners of forest engineering from around the world.  The major theme of this conference is the exchange of knowledge, operational experience and innovative ideas.

This also presents an excellent opportunity to promote R&D work conducted by teams in Lorraine (particularly in theme 1 : “Managing interactions between logging operations and ecosystem services”), but also to illustrate recent innovative measures taken by the forest industry in Lorraine.

Two days of indoor technical sessions are on the agenda as well as a full day of local field demonstrations in sub-mountainous forests.  Your contributions are expected!

Proposals for abstracts for presentations should be submitted by 31 December 2013 – please follow the following link to visit the conference website for more information (
