The 20th Symposium on Systems Analysis in Forest Resources ( SSAFR 2024)

Since 1975, SSAFR has been the premier international forum for forest systems analysis, operations research (OR) and decision science (

The SSAFR community has been the primary contributor to almost all key forest management and planning research during the past century, e.g., harvest scheduling, supply chain, forest health, spatial optimization, wildland fire risk management, simulation, stochastic process, and forest and fire economics. The SSAFR community also embraces the opportunities of emerging new data science technologies and the challenges from the global climate changes.

SSAFR is an inclusive and diverse international community that welcomes collaborators and speakers from different countries and backgrounds. SSAFR is also committed to providing a supportive environment for new forest students and researchers. This year the symposium will be organized together with the annual conference organized by DecisionES project.

This 20th  symposium will accept abstracts related with the following subjects:

We look forward to seeing you in the Basque Country in May2024. Final dates will be announced soon.
