The XXV World Congress of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) will take place in Curitiba (Brazil) from September 25 till October 5, 2019. More than 3000 representatives of forestry academic, university, and industry science, forest business, and forest state and nongovernmental organizations are expected to participate in the Congress’ work; while less than 20 people took part in the first IUFRO Congress in Vienna, and about 2500 people have participated in the XXIV IUFRO World Congress in Salt Lake City. This Congress will be held in South America for the first time ever. The Congress motto is “Forest Research and Cooperation for Sustainable Development” emphasizes the vast subject of the Congress and reflects the five main directions of the IUFRO Strategy for 2015–2019: Forests for People; Forests and Climate Change; Forests and Forest Products for a Greener Future; Biodiversity, Ecosystem Services and Biological Invasions; Forest, Soil and Water Interactions. In addition, some sessions are scheduled for the discussion on “Communications, Educating, Networking and Publishing”. There is a unique opportunity for the Congress participants to be acquainted with the forest complex of Brazil and neighboring countries. The Congress begins with the general events, including Tree Planting Ceremony, Congress Opening Ceremony, and Welcome Reception for all participants. Then, there will be plenary sessions, technical sessions, thematic discussions, lectures and presen-tations, and poster sessions as provided for by the approved Program. Within the framework of the Congress, professional excursions and technical tours are organized; thematic exhibitions of products, technologies and services necessary and available for the forest sector and research are held. At the Congress, IUFRO awards will be presented in many nominations, including the following: Scientific Achievement Awards, Distinguished Service Awards, IUFRO Best Poster Awards, as well as awards for students. At the preliminary stage, the Congress Organizing Committee has received more than 4000 applications for presenta-tions. The participation of representatives of our country in the work of the XXV IUFRO World Congress is expected to be at the level of the previous congresses, and this corre-sponds to the estimates announced earlier.
