Launch of the Value Chain Optimization (VCO) Network Book and Workshop on Nova Scotia Forest Strategic Planning Models

You are cordially invited to attend and participate in a special event, the launch of the VCO Network book “Forest Value Chain Optimization and Sustainability”. Editors and some authors will present the VCO Book chapters. The book has been dedicated to our dear friend and colleague, Eldon A. Gunn.

There will also be a special workshop where we will discuss the project “Strategic Planning Models for Nova Scotia”. This was a lifetime goal for Eldon. We are now mid-way to completing the project, and we seek your participation and advice to help make this a great success.

The launch and workshop will be held Monday, November 28th at: Dalhousie University, Industrial Engineering Department, 5269 Morris Street, Room 208, Halifax, NS. Tel: (902) 494-3281
