General Information

The Fourth Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) Conference was held April 17-19, 2012, in Fort Collins, Colorado. The USDA Forest Service, Forest Management Service Center, has hosted the conference every five years since 1997.

The conference consisted of two days of presentations from over 40 speakers. In addition, a third day of discussions and workshops was conducted. We celebrated the work that has been done in FVS over the last five years and contemplated the work to come in the future.
