In partnership with the University of Copenhagen and the University of East Anglia, the 4th Annual FLARE meeting will be held at the University of Copenhagen, October 17-20, 2018. It will continue to elicit presentations around a variety of key topics in the field, but will also offer a pointed opportunity to share and discuss our successes and failures in research and in practice. Special issue proposals from accepted papers are a possibility, and we welcome participant engagement in proposal development. The meeting will also feature workshops on “Sharing research for impact” and on FLARE’s app-based tools (LivWell and CommFor), and we welcome abstracts for additional participant-facilitated workshops. Abstracts for oral presentations, lightning talks, panel sessions, posters, and workshops must address a meeting theme and follow the abstract guidelines (see Submission Information below).
A special event on Timber Legality will also be held on October 17th. Abstract submissions will be accepted via the same submission portal as the FLARE meeting (see Submission Information below).

FLARE is accepting applications for financial assistance from students and scholars from lower income countries. Only those whose abstract is accepted and who will present the work will ultimately be considered (assistance is not available for co-authors or meeting observers).
Please use the submission portal linked above to submit a detailed budget and statement of need, including how your work and interests overlap with those of the FLARE meeting and/or Timber Legality Day. Please also indicate other sources of support you have obtained or will seek. The deadline for submitting your application is April 1, 2018
The location is easily reached by public transportation. It is a 7-8 minute walk from the Metro station “Forum” (with direct connection to the airport) or 10-15 minutes on bicycle from the city center of Copenhagen.
