This is a forum for researchers interested in Forest Economics, Forest Management, Forest Decision Support Systems and Forest Information Technology. The symposium offers a setting to discuss new scientific and technological approaches to deal with problems on such areas. An opportunity for forest institutes, corporations and universities to network and share common interests. These are the goals of the 11th Symposium for Systems Analysis in Forest Resources and the 3rd Iberian American Symposium on Forest Management and Economics. All interested in these objectives are invited to present either papers and/or posters, or to simply attend the sessions that will be organized during the event.
