International Forest Policy Meeting (IFPM3), Freiburg March 2021


After Göttingen and Wageningen IFPM3 was planned to be held in Copenhagen in March 2020. Due to Covid-19 this meeting needed to be cancelled.  As a replacement Freiburg (Germany) plans to host IFPM3 in March 2021 if the pandemic situation allows to do so.


This 3rd International Forest Policy Meeting (IFPM3) is planned as a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas on to date research in the area of forest policy. Traditional presentations about forest policy research will be complemented by the formats of poster presentations and 3-minutes-thesis presentations.  The program will be completed by a key note presentation and a social event. 


The purpose of the meeting is to facilitate networking and dialogue amongst forest policy interested researchers with a particular emphasis on creating a safe and nurturing atmosphere for junior researchers to present and discuss their work. For this reason, we welcome all forest policy interested scholars – and in particular junior scholars – to come and present their work and engage with each other.  We welcome papers and presentations on all topics of relevance to forest policy.


When and Where?


The International Forest Policy Meeting 2021 is organized by the Chair of Forest and Environmental Policy, University of Freiburg together with IUFRO Units 09.05. The meeting will take place in at the University of Freiburg city campus from Wednesday 17th of March 13.00 (joint lunch together with the participants of the traditional meeting of forest policy researchers held in German language the days before) to Thursday 18th of March 17.45.

How to submit proposed panels and individual paper presentations?


The IFPM3 is open to panels, paper presentations (oral and posters), and 3MT (3-minute-thesis) presentations (only by PhD students junior researchers) of relevance to forest policy broadly speaking. 


How to submit a panel: Panel proposals should consist of a panel title and abstract setting out the theme/guiding question/purpose of the panel and minimum 3 paper abstracts (all abstracts must be less than 300 words). Names, institutional affiliations and email addresses of the panel organizer(s) and presenting author(s) for all papers must be included. The panel organizer(s) submit the proposal on behalf of all panel participants, i.e. the papers belonging to a panel should NOT be submitted individually.


How to submit a paper for oral presentation (that is not part of a panel): Paper submissions for oral presentation should consist of an abstract of less than 300 words accompanied by names and institutional affiliations of all authors. The email addresses of presenting author(s) must be included. Papers belonging to a panel proposal should NOT be submitted individually.


How to submit a paper for poster presentation: Poster submissions should consist of an abstract of less than 300 words accompanied by names and institutional affiliations of all authors. The email addresses of presenting author(s) must be included.


How to submit a 3MT (3-minute-thesis) presentation: On the first day of the conference we will have a final session at 17.30-18.30 o’clock where PhD students and junior researchers present their theses in max 3 minutes. This format was developed by the University of Queensland, Australia and is meant to increases the presenters’ capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. The audience will be able to vote on their favorite through an online voting system and the winner receives a small price and the honor.


Please observe that 3MT presentations are only open to PhD students and junior researchers (max 1 year after their dissertation). Submissions for participating in the 3MT session should consist of a title of the presentation and be accompanied by full name, institutional affiliation(s), and email addresses of the presenter. You can read more about the 3MT format and learn about tips and tricks here. Further instructions for the 3MT presenters will be communicated at a later stage.

 

All proposals should be submitted no later than November 20, 2020.
