As a result of the recent elections, which are held every two years, the iEMSs has now a new composition for the Office and the Board.
We all thank the former President, Dan Ames, for his excellent service to the Society and his dedication during these last four years. Under Dan’s supervision we have launched the regional meetings, which will definitely be a fixed feature of our schedules.
We welcome Stefan Reis as new President and we all wish him the best of luck for his term!
SESMO (Socio-Environmental Systems Modelling www.sesmo.org) is an open access journal with the objective to progress our understanding, learning and decision making on major socio-environmental issues using advances in model-grounded processes that engage with institutional and governance contexts, cross-sectoral and scale challenges, and stakeholder perspectives.
SESMO is launching a call for a thematic issue on large-scale behavioural models of land use change. We are calling for contributions of scholars intending to present their latest research results on this topic.
The expected deadline for the submission of the contribution is the end of June 2021.
The Editor-in-chief is Tony Jakeman, and the guest editors of this special issue are:
Thirty scientists have written an open letter to Science advocating for increased transparency in the modelling behind COVID-19. Among these, our President, Dan Ames, together with some of our distinguished members, has signed on behalf of our Society.
The International Environmental Modelling and Software Society and Hydrology Department of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel are honored to host and invite you to the 10th iEMSs Conference in Brussels, Belgium in 2020.
Aims & scope
The aim of the conference is to enhance sustainable resource by bringing together researchers, stake holders and decision makers engaged with environmental modelling, software and related topics, in order to exchange information, improve cooperation, promote interdisciplinarity and stimulate developments.
The Call for Sessions & Workshops is now open! Proposals are due by 1 December 2019.
Abstract Submission: 15 December 2019 – 1 February 2020
