Welcome
Welcome!

Welcome to SilviLaser 2019, hosted for the first time in Latin America, and close to one of the most spectacular wonders of nature, the Iguazu Falls, in Brazil. This is the 16th international conference in a series focusing on lidar applications for assessing and managing forest ecosystems. The conference brings together research scientists, students and LiDAR users from around the world to share their experience in the development and application of laser scanning techniques to improve our understanding of forest ecosystem functioning and facilitate their sustainable management through improved forest assessment and inventory. It also aims to strengthen and develop new linkages between researchers, data providers, and end product users.
