Call for Presentations: NESAF 2022

Concurrent Session Presentations

**Deadline for submission is December 3, 2021.

Wed, March 23, 1-2:30p & 3-4:30p & Thurs, March 24, 8:30-10a

Back by popular demand, this year we will again have an open call for full-length presentations during concurrent technical sessions. These presentations are essentially a longer version of the very popular Flash Talks, and provide an opportunity for field foresters, researchers, students, and others who have an informative story to share. Topics from across the spectrum of natural resources management, policy, and research are welcomed, and we are especially interested in any new and cutting-edge information or field observations. Each speaker will have a total of 30 minutes to present their material and answer questions from the audience.

To apply for a full-length presentation, please send a Word document with the following information to Ethan Belair ( by the December 3, 2021 deadline.

  • A brief, descriptive title
  • Authors’ name(s) & affiliations
  • Presenter’s contact information
  • A short abstract (strict 300 word maximum)

As there are a limited number of slots, the NESAF program committee will evaluate submissions and contact selected presenters by December 17, 2021. As in years past, the abstracts will be published in the spring issue of the NESAF News Quarterly.
