We invite you to present your research, projects, or experience at the Yale ISTF Chapter’s 25th Annual Conference, entitled ‘Examining Tropical Changes: Resilience in the context of Disturbance and Transgression’. The Tools/Skill Share Exposition is an opportunity to bring together a diverse audience of practitioners, academics, and forest users to showcase transferable and nuanced methodologies for approaching disturbances and transgressions, and building resiliency for tropical forests and their people. Over the course of 2 hours, selected participants will have the opportunity to demonstrate these tools to a rotating audience of conference attendees, promote their use in new contexts, and exchange ideas.
Examples of tools may be large or small in scale, ranging from a unique participatory mapping strategy or research methodology to a modeling software, training manual or cell phone application. Please note that interactive presentations are preferred: these will be presented at tables in a large room and projectors are not available, therefore PowerPoint presentations are not advised.
