UPDATE: 11th WorldDendro - Livingstone, Zambia
We are delighted to announce that the next WorldDendro Conference will be held in Livingstone, Zambia! Livingstone is the centre of tourism in Zambia, specifically because of its proximity to Victoria Falls and departure point for safaris to the many national parks in Zambia and neighbouring countries. We request that members and non-members fill out this brief survey to assist the planning committee.
Expression of Interest for 11th WorldDendro, 2024
The Tree-Ring Society (TRS), as the primary dendrochronology association sponsoring the meeting, welcomes expressions of interest for hosts of the next WorldDendro Meeting. WorldDendro is an international scientific meeting held approximately every four years that reflects the diverse disciplinarity inherent in dendrochronology. The WorldDendro meeting should reflect diversity in gender, career stage, institutions, and tree-ring disciplines. The four most recent WorldDendro Meetings have been held in Thimphu, Bhutan (2018), Melbourne, Australia (2014), Rovaniemi, Finland (2010), and Beijing, China (2006).
We invite organizations or groups interested in hosting WorldDendro 2024 to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the TRS for consideration. EOI should include the proposed location, committee structure, aim and scope, and how diversity, equity and inclusivity will be included within the entire programme. If applicable please also include Visa requirements for the proposed location and institutional or other types of support (in-kind or financial) the proponents anticipate.
Please submit your EOI (maximum 3 pages) to the TRS at: trslori [at] gmail.com by March 25th 2023.
The TRS Executive Council, with advice from the Association of Tree Ring Research and the Asian Dendrochronology Association, will review EOIs and request full proposals based on an assessment of the criteria listed above.
