  2. Authors, affiliation, and title cannot be changed at the presentation. Accordingly, we encourage speakers, especially students, to apply after fully consulted with co-authors.
  3. The presentation should be on forest science and the results and conclusions must be obtained by the closing date of the manuscript submission for the abstracts (January 15, 2015).
  4. Presentations will be made in the oral session, poster session, and the symposium (the symposium having a specific theme and the cross-disciplinary symposium).
    1. Speakers who applied for presentation may choose either oral or poster presentation, however, the presentation style they choose may be changed due to the availability of meeting rooms.
    2. The symposium is organized and applied by the JFS members. Starting from the 126th Annual Meeting of the Japan Forestry Society, the symposium is divided into (1) the symposium having a specific them and (2) the cross-disciplinary symposium. The details of approved symposiums will be posted on the JFS website (scheduled in late September). The JFS members who wish to make a presentation in these symposiums are requested to apply for the presentation.
    3. LCD projector will be used for the Oral presentation. OHP is not used.
  5. Only the JFS members (as of 2015) are able to make the oral, poster, and the symposium presentation. Non-JFS members are invited to become a member of JFS through the website (https://www.forestry.jp/).
  6. Thirteen research areas: forestry policy, landscape management, forest management, silviculture, forest genetics and tree breeding, tree physiology, forest ecology, forest environment, forest disaster prevention and hydrology, forest engineering, forest insects and animals, forest pathology, non-wood forest products, will be set up in the 126th Annual Meeting of the Japan Forestry Society.
