10th World Dendro Conference

Thimphu, Bhutan
Meeting Category

The 10th World Dendro Conference will be held in Thimphu, Bhutan, from 2-22 June 2018.


Since the first International Tree-Ring Conference, the field of tree-ring research has grown at a phenomenal rate. Much of the discipline's expansion can be accounted by the increasing numbers of students and scholars in developing countries, hence the decision to hold this conference in Bhutan.

The conference will:
- include multiple forums in which students and educators of natural sciences in Bhutan can participate without cost,
- have multiple venues open to the general public where interested citizens can learn about the latest environmental discoveries, and
- create a monetary fund to support young scientists in the host country.
