Northern hardwood forests occupy millions of hectares in the eastern United States and Canada, representing one of the most economically important and ecologically diverse forests in eastern North America. Northern hardwood silviculture is diverse and complex as well, and has been the focus of extensive research for over 80 years. Today, managers continue to seek innovative sustainable management solutions to address the expanding challenges facing this forest type, including serious threats such as invasive species, inadequate tree regeneration and shifts in composition, degraded timber quality, herbivory, climate change, nitrogen deposition, and forest fragmentation.
The 2023 Northern Hardwood Conference (NHC) will give researchers, academia, and forest managers from across the range of northern hardwoods a forum to learn, share, and discuss cutting-edge science and innovative management practices to sustain healthy and productive northern hardwood forests.
Since 1972, the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the University of New Brunswick has been hosting the MEC Symposium in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. Since 2002, the Symposium occurs tri-annually, incorporating all aspects of powered upper limb prosthetics. The Symposium is immediately preceded by courses and workshops geared toward clinicians.
The historical conference proceedings have been made available through the generosity of UNB and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, through a partnership with Duke University and the Open Prosthetics Project, where a list of proceedings from previous Symposia can be found.
This specialty conference is among the first of its kind to feature presentations of peer-reviewed papers and relevant case studies from industry to engage attendees in discussions about new and emerging technologies in the built environment. The conference technical program features state-of-the-art technologies and presentations on leading research from around the world.
Papers from the Annual Meetings of the Atlantic Provinces Linguistic Association (PAMAPLA) / ACTES DES COLLOQUES ANNUELS DE L’ASSOCIATION DE LINGUISTIQUE DES PROVINCES ATLANTIQUES (ACAALPA).
The Atlantic Provinces Linguistic Association (APLA) was founded in 1977 to promote the study of languages and linguistics in Eastern Canada and was recognized in 1992 as a national organization by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. The Association hosts a conference every two years in the fall at a centre of higher education. Topics cover all areas of linguistics. The Association's journal Linguistica Atlantica is published annually.
L'Association de linguistique des provinces atlantiques (ALPA) fut fondée en 1977 afin de promouvoir les études portant sur les langues et la linguistique dans l'est du Canada et a été reconnue en 1992 comme organisation nationale par le Conseil de recherches en sciences humaines du Canada. L'association organise un colloque tous les deux ans dans un des centres d'enseignement supérieur des provinces atlantiques. Les sujets traités couvrent tous les domaines de la linguistique. La revue de l'Association Linguistica Atlantica est publiée annuellement.
