Invited Speaker

Dr. Jessica McCarty  is an Associate Professor  of Geography at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, USA and has more than 15 years’ experience in applications of remote sensing and geospatial science to quantify wildland and human-caused fires, fire emissions, forestry and natural resources, agriculture and food security, and land-cover/land-use change. She is a NASA-funded PI and author or co-author of more than 30 peer-reviewed journal articles , four data citations, and one NASA Technology Transfer. She is a member of the Arctic Council ’s Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme 's Expert Group on Short-Lived Climate Forcers, contributor to the EU-funded Arctic Black Carbon impacting on Climate and Air Pollution (ABC-iCAP), and has co-developed fire emission methodologies used by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the U.S. Greenhouse Gas Inventory and National Emissions Inventory. In summer 2022, she was appointed an Associate Program Manager for NASA's Earth Science Applied Sciences Wildfires program.

She will present:

Future Arctic and Boreal Fire Regimes

Wildland fires in the boreal and Arctic are increasing in frequency and severity, with extreme fire seasons documented across the Pan-Arctic in 2019, 2020, and 2021. Globally, human-caused and wildland fires above 60°N were larger sources of black carbon and methane than current modeled estimates of anthropogenic sectors. This talk will summarize recent and ongoing results from a recent Arctic Council expert group report as well as a current EU-funded project to understand the impact of fires in the High Northern Latitudes on air quality, black carbon emissions, and potentially emission inventories. It will highlight ongoing and needed collaboration of European scientists with U.S. and Canadian fire researchers. Several NASA programs, including NASA Wildland Fire Management and NASA FireSense, are seeking to understand and enhance collaboration between North American ecology and fire researchers and scientists, including geospatial data users. Issues of inclusion, diversity, and equity are inherent to understanding fire ecology and fire management in the High Northern Latitudes, including centering and deferring to Indigenous and local communities.

Forum on issues related to remote sensing in forestry

Forum supported and co-organized by the Quebec Association for Remote Sensing (AQT) 

The search for quality information is central both for forest inventories and for everything related to modeling monitoring. Remote sensing has always had an important role for quality forest data. With the development of sensors in a wide range of technologies, remote sensing currently offers so many choices that it is difficult to determine which solution is suitable for advanced research or for the establishment of operational procedures. The AQT invites you to a one-hour discussion on this subject with a panel of experts from four backgrounds.

Richard Fournier has been a professor in the Department of Applied Geomatics at the Université de Sherbrooke since 2001. He specializes in the use of geomatics for the management of forests and natural environments. He is a regular researcher at CEF and CARTEL  (Center for applications and research in remote sensing). He obtained his degree in atmospheric physics at UQAM in 1986, his master's degree in remote sensing at York University in 1989 and his doctorate in geomatics at Université Laval in 1997. He worked for 5 years at the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing and 5 years at the Canadian Forest Service. He specialized in methods’ development for the use of various lidar types: airborne, terrestrial or mobile. He also apply data fusion from several sources of remote sensing data. He is also Vice-President of the Quebec Association for Remote Sensing since 2017.

Guest Speakers

Jean-Francois Bourdon is a remote sensing analyst at the Direction des Inventaires Forestiers du Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs du Québec  since 2017. He participates in the development of new products derived from LiDAR in collaboration with external research teams and adapts the methodologies developed with a view to applying them throughout Québec. He obtained his degree in forest engineering from the Faculty of Forestry, Geography and Geomatics of University Laval in 2013 and then began a master's degree in forest sciences at the same place on the use of remote sensing for the collection of morels in forest fires.
Maude Pelletier  is President, CEO of Balkos Technologies  and Founder and Managing Director at MVT Geo-Solutions . She holds a bachelor's degree in physical and environmental geography (2012) and a master's degree in geomorphology (2015), both from Université Laval (Centre d'étude nordique).
Nathalie Perron  has been the director of the project office and training at the Centre d’enseignement et de recherche en foresterie (CERFO)  since April 2022. She manages major projects related to the fields of the forest environment. Among other things, she leads "Lidar Operations", a project aimed at promoting lidar products derived from the Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs and training forestry contractors in their use. She holds a degree in biology from the University of Sherbrooke (1991) and a master's degree in renewable resources from the University of Quebec at Chicoutimi (1994). She also holds a doctorate in forest sciences from Laval University since 2003. She has more than 20 years of experience in strategic development, both in the forest industry, the scientific research community and in the Quebec public service.

Nearly 180 passes for Société de transport de Sherbrooke  (STS) buses, provided by Destination Sherbrooke , will be distributed by volunteers in the entrance halls of the Grand Times Hotel and the Hotel Le President between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM Monday evening and Tuesday evening. The remaining passes will be available at the conference reception table starting Wednesday morning. These passes are valid for the entire duration of the Conference.

Public transport is a bit complicated from the Hotel Le Président. We invite all those who come by car and stay at this hotel to try to take as many passengers as possible with them to get to campus and even, if possible, to make a few round trips to accommodate participants who do not have other options than public transit.

If you absolutely must park on campus , we recommend that you arrive early. Additional parking lots, with a free shuttle service, have been set up by the Université de Sherbrooke on the outskirts of the Campus. These parking lots are located at the Mont-Sainte-Anne arena , chemin Ste-Catherine and at Lucien-Blanchard park  (prefered option), rue Cabana. Shuttles run from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM.

If you have questions, contact the person responsible for your pole:

The organizing committee of the Centre for Forest Research Annual Conference is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for its participants, speakers, partners, staff and volunteers to ensure an enjoyable experience for all during the event.

As we discuss science from our different perspectives, cultures and knowledge bases, we want to foster an open and inclusive environment for all participants. Our goal is to create an environment where everyone feels welcome to participate, speak up, ask questions and engage in conversation. We expect members to be intentional and thoughtful in their interactions to ensure that the event reflects a culturally safe environment for all.

We will not tolerate harassment of any kind at this conference. Inappropriate behavior or speech will not be accepted in any part of the conference, including lectures, workshops, roundtables, and social events.

COVID-19 Guidelines

One of the most effective ways to protect yourself and reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in public events is to wear a mask (especially when the 2m distancing cannot be respected). In order to better protect all persons participating in the annual CEF colloquium, face coverings (masks) will be required on the colloquium premises (cultural center, classrooms, etc.) except for brief moments during meals and breaks. Please note that wearing a mask will not be required for presenters when they give their talk at the lectern. If you do not have a mask, there will be some available on site. Please wear a mask at all times for the safety of others.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 , please refrain from participating in the conference.

Wifi Access

Eduroam network - Normally, all students who have already connected to their own university's Eduroam wireless network should be able to connect to the University of Sherbrooke's Eduroam network without additional configuration. If this is not your case, we advise you to configure your mobile BEFORE coming to the conference. Setup instructions are virtually identical from university to university, but here are the instructions provided by each university: UQAM , Université Laval , Université de Sherbrooke , Université de Montréal , McGill , Concordia , UQAT , UQAR , UQO , UQTR , TELUQ .

ZAP Network - For people who do not have access to Eduroam, the University of Sherbrooke offers the ZAP network . Simply select this network from the list of wireless networks available from your laptop or mobile device and you will be taken to a login page as soon as you attempt to access the web.

Call for Posters and Presentations

The Call for Poster and Presentation is over since August 1st!

All CFR members are invited to present the results of their research as an oral presentation or poster. Only abstracts presenting results will be accepted for oral presentations. Submissions of CFR student and post-doctoral research projects that are well underway will be given priority by the selection committee. The deadline for submitting a proposal is August 1, 2022.

This year, the CEF encourages members to present on topics that are somewhat outside the CEF's traditional lines of research: health, society, arts, geomatics and remote sensing. Always obviously in connection with the forest. Classic CEF themes are of course also welcome, whether in French or in English.

Abstracts should be limited to between 250 and 300 words in the language in which the presentation will be done (English or French). Abstracts not respecting these conditions will be refused. Abstracts won't be modifiable after the submission deadline.

Specific instructions for oral presentations - Oral presentations should be 15 minutes in length, followed by 5 minutes of questions. Slides should be in PDF or Microsoft PowerPoint format. Office 2010 will be installed on the computers. You can use previous versions of Office if you do not have version 2010. If you have video or other animation, make sure that the presentation is compatible with Windows PC. Also, because we cannot guarantee access to the Internet, it is important that you save a copy of your presentation on a USB key. Therefore online presentations system should not be used (Prezi and others).

Finally, to ensure that the sessions run smoothly, NO internet connections will be permitted during the presentation. Mac users should ensure that they have a version of Office that is compatible with Windows PC.

Specific instructions for posters - Posters should be either:

  • in LANDSCAPE format with maximum dimensions of 48 inches wide by 36 inches high (122 cm par 91.5 cm) or
  • in PORTRAIT format with maximum dimensions of 24 inches wide by 36 inches high (61 cm par 91.5 cm).

Read the following article  in Nature to improve the quality of your poster.

Please write to Stéphane Daigle if you have questions about posters and presentations.

Only students who are members of CEF at master's or doctoral level are eligible to the competition. A jury will determine the best oral presentations, while the best posters will be selected by a public vote. To vote, conference participants will need to complete a ballot form that will be available in their name badge.

Call for Training Workshops

The Call for Training Workshop is over since August 1st!

There will be an extra day of training workshops this year (Tuesday, September 27).

We therefore solicit your contribution. Whether you are a regular researcher, associate researcher, professional, postdoctoral fellow, master's or doctoral student or even non-member of the CFR , you can offer a one-day or half-day training workshop. The deadline for submitting a training workshop is August 1, 2022

R packages, programming, specialized software, theory in ecology, field techniques, etc. Practical and theoretical training will be accepted. Anything that can be taught in 4 or 8 hours and that is of interest to CFR members will be considered. In case the number of proposals exceeds the number of available rooms, a committee will select the most interesting/popular ones. We will try to accommodate as many workshops as possible. For computer-type workshops, we should have a couple of computer labs available. We will reserve those for workshops involving licensed software. For workshops involving open source software, we prefer participants to bring their own laptop with the software already installed. This makes holding a computer type workshop possible in conventional classrooms.

The persons in charge of the selected workshops will not have to pay the registration fees for the Symposium. A maximum of two persons per workshop will be able to take advantage of this offer.

Please write to Pierre Racine if you have questions about the workshops.
