Leading Experts to gather at the 15th Symposium on Systems Analysis in Forest Resources (SSAFR) in Qu├ębec City

June 28th, 2013

Canadian company Remsoft, a leading provider of advanced analytics, modeling and spatial optimization solutions, will be presenting at the 15th biannual Symposium on Systems Analysis in Forest Resources in Québec City, Canada, August 19-21, 2013. The theme of this year’s Symposium is “Analytics for Sustainable Forest Value Chains”, and will attract many high quality experts from North and South America, Europe and other regions around the globe.

The business of forestry has drastically changed in recent years and the industry finds itself at a crossroads. The main objectives of this year’s Symposium are to explore the challenges facing the industry today, the ways in which decision support systems, including advanced analytics and operational planning, are key in addressing planning problems along the value chain, and how to remain competitive while still meeting social and environmental requirements.

Mr. Karl Walters, Senior Solutions Analyst, will be presenting “Operationalizing Analytics in Forestry: 20 Years of Remsoft Experience” at the three-day conference. The talk will provide a retrospective of a software system that is used throughout the world and that has evolved over time from essentially just a harvest scheduling model into a modeling framework capable of tackling strategic, tactical and operational planning problems in forestry as well as other sectors. Current trends continue to influence research and development and Mr. Walters will highlight where future development at Remsoft is headed.

“Over the last 20 years, we have witnessed a number of technological and social changes in the forest industry,” says Mr. Walters. “We have seen desktop computers evolve from an 8-bit single-processor to 64-bit multiprocessor platforms, and the shift in forest ownership went from large, integrated forest products companies to the investor class. The focus on timber production now recognizes a wider range of benefits from forests, including forest health, we now have globalization of trade and the rise of new economic powers in Brazil, Russia, India and China,” continues Mr. Walters. "As Remsoft has broadened its user base beyond North America, these influences have shaped the development of the company and its software offerings."
