INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DENDROCHRONOLOGY (WORLD DENDRO 2010) / LUSTOTUTKIJOIDEN MAAILMANKOKOUS

CONFERENCE ACTIVITIES / KONFERENSSITAPAHTUMIA

This document represents a personal view on the World Dendro 2010 Conference (WD2010). I don't want to make any specific conclusions on the conference results or activity, because it would be too difficult a task to me. As in the conference there were about 350 participants, of whom about 300 researchers, it is hard to summarize even the main results, because a number of important subjects were focused. I can, in general, say that we concentrated on exchanging results of the most recent research, talking about methods, getting new ideas to improve our own research, etc. And not forgetting to see colleagues face to face. That's very important also in the scientific world!

Well, here is a report concerning the activity, where our small group of researchers and other professionals were involved in. I hope you to find this documentation enjoyable and useful.

Thank You Colleagues, Journalists and the Communications Team of Metla making this contents possible! A special thanks to my wife Margit, who contributed to the conference three huge bilingual photo series, the total of 523 photos. It was a sweaty project of one week! Her series actually give one face to the Fieldweek, the Conference and also the Russian excursion. Summa summarum: We made it! Thank You Once More! Mauri.
