The 2009 Symposium for System Analysis in Forest Resources (2009 SSAFR) will bring together scientists to share ideas and developments in forest resource economics, operations research, management sciences, decision analysis, systems analysis, and information technology. Scientists from around the world will make presentations and share the latest in research, methodology and applications of advanced technologies for managing and problem solving in natural resources. The symposium will be the 13th SSAFR in the series sponsored by the Society of American Foresters E4 Working Group (Management Sciences and Operations Research).

Additional registration information will be forthcoming in later announcements. Attendees are encouraged to submit papers that address applications of operations research, computer science, or GIS to natural resource problems. Operations research and management science applied to natural resources is a wide umbrella, so all topics which apply quantitative analysis to natural resources are of interest to the SSAFR audience.
