The Morton Arboretum is organizing a meeting with ChenShan Botanical Garden in Shanghai on Fagaceae and Northofagaceae genetics. 

The IOS has its 25th anniversary in 2017, and a superb way to celebrate it will be to get yourself to the Czech Republic in July where, during Oak Open Days based at his arboretum near Poděbrady, enthusiastic and dynamic IOS member Dušan Plaček is sponsoring a "Birthday Banquet" for participants at Poděbrady Castle.

The Oak Year, an artwork by Scottish artist Anne Gilchrist, will be showing for 2 days (27th and 28th August 2016) at Edinburgh Palette, 151 London Road, Edinburgh  www.edinburghpalette.co.uk. It comprises 24 painted panels 5 ft × 4 ft and depicts portraits of many hundreds of oak leaves from real specimens from one oak wood on the shore of Loch Tay, Perthshire. It shows a whole year's worth of leaves, and the close observational depiction shows variety of shape, size, predation, autumn colours, first leaves, and winter fallen leaves.
