[quote]First Announcement

International Workshop on Biological Control of Invasive Species of Forests in the United States and P. R. China

To: All who are interested in biological control of invasive species of forests

From: Yun Wu and Richard Reardon, USDA Forest Service-Forest Health Technology Enterprise Team, Zongqi Yang and Wenxia Zhao, Chinese Academy of Forestry-Research Institute of Forest Ecology, Environment and Protection

International cooperation among the USDA Forest Service and various organizations in China to manage invasive species of forests has been ongoing for many years. This cooperation will need to be strengthened and the risk of new introduction of invasive species into the U. S. and P. R. China will continue to increase.

We are in the early stages of planning an international workshop that focuses on reviewing past and planning for future cooperation. The scope of the topics to be included in the workshop is broad, including arthropods, pathogens, plants, and other organisms.

Workshop objectives: 1) To summarize the most recent 15 years (1993-2007) of cooperation between USDA Forest Service and various organizations in China to manage invasive species of forests; 2) To develop a plan for future cooperation between the USDA Forest Service and various organizations in China, as well as other Asian countries to manage invasive species of forests; 3) To develop/strengthen strategies for minimizing introduction of invasive species of forests between the two countries; 4) To encourage informal exchanges of scientists and workshops covering biological control of invasive species of forests; 5) To harmonize the shipment of natural enemies; and 6) To document the biology, life history, natural enemies, etc. for a prioritized list of potential invasive species of forests threatening both countries.

The workshop will be held from September 20-25, 2007 in Beijing, P. R. China. In an effort to meet workshop monetary constrains it will be limited to 120 participants. Limited funds are available to cover international travel for invited speakers and to sponsor registration and lodging for graduate students.

The workshop will be co-sponsored by the Chinese Academy of Forestry, the China State Forestry Administration-Department of Afforestation, and the USDA Forest Service- Forest Health Protection, -Forest Health Technology Enterprise Team, and -International Programs.

If you are interested in making a presentation or a poster at this workshop, please send: 1) name, 2) affiliation, 3) E-mail address, 4) a title and a 3-4 sentence summary of your presentation in English or Chinese using a MS Word or PDF attachment, to ywu@fs.fed.us by January 20, 2006. You may go to http://svinetfc2.fs.fed.us/biocontrol for future announcements and updated information. If you have any questions regarding the workshop please contact Yun Wu at ywu@fs.fed.us or (304) 285-1594, or Zhongqi Yang at yangzq@caf.ac.cn or 86 10 62889502.[/quote]

Same thing in Chinese [quote]第一轮通知

中美林业外来有害物种生物防治国际学术研讨会



参加人:所有对林业外来有害物种生物防治感兴趣的人员



召集人:吴 云博士,理查德·雷尔顿博士:美国农业部林务局森林健康技术企业站

杨忠岐博士,赵文霞副所长:中国林业科学研究院森林生态环境与保护研究所



外来有害生物入侵是美国生态系统四大重要威胁之一,其中有些入侵物种源自中国。美国农业部林务局与中国许多单位已就入侵生物的控制进行了多年的国际合作研究。这种合作需要加强并且两国之间的新的外来生物将继续增加。

多年来,我们一直在努力,准备举办一次关于中美林业外来入侵物种生物防治的国际学术研讨会,以总结过去的合作研究成果,筹划今后的继续合作计划。本次学术研讨会的主题范围广泛,包括外来入侵物种及其天敌,如节肢动物、病原微生物、植物及其它生物等诸多领域。



学术研讨会的内容和目的:

1.总结最近15年来(1993-2007年)美国农业部林务局与中方各单位在外来有害物种控制方面的合作研究成果。

2.建立一个美国农业部林务局与中方各单位、以及亚洲其他国家间今后控制外来有害生物的合作计划。

3.探讨和加强有效减少林业外来入侵生物传播的途径和方法。

4.鼓励双方有关林业外来有害入侵物种生物防治的科学家和课题组之间以各种渠道开展非正式学术交流活动。

5.探讨中美双方在天敌输引方面的相互协调机制。

6.交流已入侵或重要的潜在的林业外来有害生物的生物学、生活史、天敌等方面的研究成果。



本学术研讨会定于2007年9月20~25日在中国北京举行。参加会议的人数拟控制在120人左右。由于经费有限,少量的经费将用于负担少数几位特邀报告者的国际旅差费,以及主办方部分研究生的注册费和住宿费。



本次研讨会由中国林业科学研究院、中国国家林业局造林司和美国农业部林务局森林健康保护司、森林健康技术企业站、以及国际项目组共同主办。



如果您对本研讨会感兴趣并打算参加会议,请于 2007年1月20日前将您的下述资料用MS-Word或PDF附件(英文或中文)以E-mail发送至吴云博士(ywu@fs.fed.us):

1)姓名、2)工作单位、3)电子邮箱地址、4)题目和用几句话简要叙述你要做的学术报告的内容。



请登陆网站http://svinetfc2.fs.fed.us/biocontrol查看最新通知。如果有什么疑问,请与吴云博士(ywu@fs.fed.us或304-285-1594) 或者杨忠岐博士 (yangzq@caf.ac.cn 或 86 10 62889502))直接联系。[/quote]

Well, that didn't work. I really need to get in the habit of previewing before I post. Oops.
