The opening of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) was held at the Sonesta Hotel in Concepción, Chile on Sunday evening 4 June 2017.

It was advertised by IUFRO that there was going to be a Welcoming by the Organizing Committee followed by a Welcome Reception.

If there was a Welcoming by the Organizing Committee it was a Welcome Reception of copious glasses of wine and champaign with hors d’oeuvres.

One of today’s (5 June) highlights from the Opening Sessions features a workshop, “The Origin of life on earth,” by Rafael Vicuña.
