Registration open for 2017 Forest Inventory and Analysis Science Stakeholder Meeting

The Forest Service’s Forest Inventory and Analysis Program (FIA) is the primary source of information about US forest status and trends. A network of nationally consistent field observations forms FIA’s core, and active collaboration with clients and peer organizations ensures that the resulting inventory remains agile, comprehensive, and relevant.

The FIA Program recently announced that its 2017 FIA Science Stakeholder Meeting will be on October 24 – 26, 2017 in Park City, Utah. The 13th biennial Science Stakeholder Meeting, which will have the theme of “Doing More with the Core,” will emphasize innovation around how FIA analyzes, augments, and delivers information derived from its central data collection operations.

The Symposium will bring together international forest scientists, managers, and stakeholders to share insights on a wide variety of topics, including contemporary issues, science policy, mensuration, geospatial products, and inventory methods.
