Thanks for your understanding and sorry for the inconvenience,

Colorado State University is excited to host the 9th International Congress on Environmental Modelling and Software June 24-28, 2018 in Fort Collins, Colorado USA.
The 2018 congress is themed “Modelling for Sustainable Food-Energy-Water Systems” with an objective to foster the exchange of ideas and solutions leading to methods and techniques for managing these systems effectively and efficiently.
Student Registration – The Conference Committee has worked hard to provide a reduced student registration fee of only $55! The discounted rate is first-come-first-serve basis until the limit is reached, after which students will be required to pay the regular professional registration fee.

A tribute in memory of Dr. James (Jim) C. Ascough II

This is a tribute to Dr. Jim Ascough, who was an enthusiastic member, officer and medalist of the International Environmental Modelling & Software Society (iEMSs). Sadly, Jim died of a heart attack on 1 December 2016. This shocked his family, friends and colleagues, who knew Jim as an active person who rarely lacked energy for any endeavor. Jim is survived by his wife, Dr. Lois Deer-Ascough (Deer-Ascough et al., 1995; Ascough et al., 1998), son TJ (age 22) and daughter Katie (age 18).
Outside of work, Jim was fully engaged as a husband and father, who expressed his love to his family in words and actions. Even during the work day, it was not uncommon to hear Jim talking on the phone to one of his kids or his wife. He was an active participant in their school and athletic activities, even coaching soccer and playing tennis with his children. The family took vacations together, attended church regularly, and participated in many outdoor activities, like hiking in the Rocky Mountains.
