We are seeking for sponsorship for CASUARINA 2019, to be held from 21 to 25 October 2019 in Krabi province in southern Thailand. CASUARINA 2019 is hosted and sponsored by Kasetsart University of Thailand in collaboration with IUFRO WP2.08.02 Improvement and Culture of Nitrogen Fixing Trees and IUFRO Forest Biomass Network Taskforce.

CASUARINA 2019 is the sixth international conference on a successful series dealing with breeding and management of casuarina plantations after Canberra, Australia (1981), Cairo, Egypt (1990), Da Nang, Vietnam (1996), Hainan, China (2010) and Chennai, India (2014). It is thus 38 years after the first in Canberra, reflecting the continuing interest in research and development of casuarinas. We expect up to 100 participants from Asia, Africa, Australia and the Pacific, Europe and Americas will attend.

CASUARINA 2019 will be a multidisciplinary event, bringing together scientists and managers of forest plantations. Recent advances in genetics, silviculture, biotechnology, ecology, and social sciences, with potential applications for the management of bio-energy and conventional wood production, will be presented. Only plenary sessions have been programmed to foster scientific exchanges across the wide disciplines, in order to face the challenge of adaptation of breeding and management strategies to climate change.

Sponsorship is being be sought with confirmation no later than the end of June 2019. We will be pleased to discuss your participation and the sponsorship opportunities that we can offer to increase your organisation’s profile. Contribution of sponsors will be appropriately acknowledged at the conference venue, in the meeting programmes and in the printed proceedings which will be widely distributed.
