A Reforestation Conference is an opportunity for scientists to gather, present and exchange results and experiences from research areas relevant to reforestation. Top researchers from
Europe and North America are invited as speakers. Conference objectives are to encourage researchers towards more dynamic ongoing cooperation and to publish a thematic publication
with the latest results covering all aspects of the reforestation process. The presented results from the Conference should fill the gaps in knowledge about reasons of success and failure in
reforestation programs. Overall, the Conference will highlight challenges of reforestation and provide some solutions, while contributing to interactions between researchers and practitioners. All researchers, and particularly young ones, will get additional support and opportunity to exchange information and to build their research network and collaborative abilities.
