The Poplar and Willow Genetics Working Party of the International Union of Forestry Research Organizations (IUFRO) convenes an International Poplar Symposium (IPS) every four years.  This series of gatherings provides a international forum for presenting and discussing recent scientific findings on a wide range of topics related to poplar and willow.  The last such symposium - IPS-VI - was held, very successfully, in Vancouver in 2014.  See report on this website.

A call has been issued for proposals to host the next symposium - IPS-VII - in 2018.  Proposals are to be submitted by April 1, 2016 to the coordinator of the IUFRO Working Party, Dr. Ron Zalesny of the U.S. Forest Service (fs%23fed%23us|rzalezny).  By May 1, 2016, a selection committee will announce its decision, which will be noted also on this website.
