The annual ForestDSS Council meeting took place on the 18th of September 2017as a side event of the 125thIUFRO Anniversary Congress in Freiburg, Germany . The ForestDSS Council was constituted of those DSS experts that participated in the annual meeting of the CoP and acted as a review panel for the activity of the whole CoP.

I short presentation about the activities in the last year and the proposed next activities for 2017/18 can be found in the report of the coordinator. Besides the DSS sessions during the IUFRO congress there were very intensive discussions from a motivated group of DSS experts how to continue with the CoP.

Some selected activies are:
- provide a stronger link to IUFRO groups (weblinks from portal to groups and from groups to portal; actively support the work in the CoP and increase visibility of researchers)
- update of the DSS descriptions in the wiki (identify important DSS that are currently missing and distribute tasks for the description of those)
- start to document DSS related lectures from the partners / universities in order to provide a hub for interested students that want to take a course
