ISEM 2017 : The International Society for Ecological Modelling Global Conference 2017
Call For Papers
The International Society for Ecological Modelling Global Conference will be held in 2017 under the theme, Adaptation and Evolution in Ecological Modelling: Linking Society and Academic Approaches in Disturbance and Disaster Management.
This global conference is the 21st biennial conference of the The International Society for Ecological Modelling (ISEM) and looks to bring together scientists from all professions and applications that deal with the use of ecological models and systems ecology.
In this Meeting recent progress and future perspectives in new methodology including adaptation/evolution processes will be discussed, with the focus on linking society and academic fields in reality through multi-disciplinary approaches that include interfacing nature and humans, eco-evolutionary processes, and social collaborations.
Abstract Submission Deadline: 3 April 2017
Oral and paper abstracts are now invited on the following topics in Symposiums and General Sessions. They should be submitted using the online abstract submission system. The titles of symposiums and sessions may be slightly changed during the abstract submission process.
Interfacing nature and humans
Sensor networks, pattern recognition and robots in ecological modelling
Data treatment and management
GIS and landscape
Energy quality (e.g., energy, exergy)
Population and quantitative genetics in ecological modelling
Molecular ecology/evolution and meta-genomics
Strategy and game theory
Population/community stability and persistence
Ecosystem adaptation/evolution to environmental variability (e.g., climate change)
Behavioral adaptation to stress and disturbance
Social collaboration for ecosystem sustainability
Social feedbacks for ecosystem management
Models dealing with stress, disturbance and disaster in ecosystems
Invasion and extinction of species
Wildlife and resource management
Biodiversity and conservation management
Energy efficiency and budget
Aquatic and river ecosystem management
Brackish and coastal ecosystem management
Terrestrial and forest ecosystem management
Urban ecosystem management
Education and public relations
The sessions will be organized in parallel according to hierarchical units of ecological systems, computational methods and applied and related fields across different ecosystems:
Ecology in molecules and cells
Individual ecology in relation with physiology, morphology, behavior etc.
Population and community ecology
Ecosystem functioning and management (e.g., energy, bio-geo-chemical cycle)
Heuristic or data-based models
Statistics in relation with ecological modelling
Applied and related fields
Disease and health
Machine learning and artificial intelligence
