We convene a session “Are we any good at simulating ecology? Success and future challenges in ecological simulation models“ at this year’s Joint Annual Meeting of the British Ecological Society (BES), NecoV and Gesellschaft für Ökologie (GfOe), in association with the European Ecological Federation (EEF), between 11th and 14th December 2017 in Ghent, Belgium. This session is organized and chaired together with the GfOe working group "Computational Ecology" and the BES working group "Quantitative Ecology" and is going to take place on Thursday, 14th December 2017, 9:45 a.m.. We are looking forward to exciting talks of our invited speakers:
Dries Bonte (University of Ghent)
Mike Harfoot (UNEP-WCMC Cambridge)
Sonia Kefi (CNRS Grenoble)
David Orme (Imperial College London)
Laura Pollock (CNRS Grenoble)
Damaris Zurell (WSL Birmensdorf)
As usual, we are also planning a meeting of the working group which is a bit different from "regular" GfOe meetings and is going to be a joined event as well. We invite you to get in touch, socialize, have a chat, and get some drinks and snacks. After this socializing event at the conference's venue, we would like to continue this at a pub in Ghent! This will take place on Tuesday, 12th December 2017, 7 p.m.. For details please have a look at the final conference schedule.
We are looking forward to see you there, please save the dates!
