The 1st Regional Conference on Environmental Modeling and Software (Asian Region), held on May 18-20, 2019 in Nanjing, Jiangsu, China, was a great success. With the topic of “Modelling for Environmental Sustainability: Asia’s Next Great Challenge”, this conference was organized by the International Environmental Modelling and Software Society, the Key Laboratory of Virtual Geographic Environment (Ministry of Education of PRC), and the School of Geography, Nanjing Normal University. Co-organisers were the Professional Committee of Geographic Information Modelling and Analysis (the Geographical Society of China), the Virtual Geographic Environment Committee (Chinese National Committee of International Society for Digital Earth), the Jiangsu Center for Collaborative Innovation in Geographical Information Resource Development and Application, the State Key Laboratory Cultivation Base of Geographical Environment Evolution (Jiangsu Province), the Jiangsu Society for Geodesy Photogrammetry and Cartography, the Jiangsu Association for the Sciences of Remote sensing and Geographic Information System, the Geographical Society of Jiangsu Province, the National Data Sharing and Service Platform for Earth System (China), the Jiangsu Institute of Geographic Information Institute.
Dear iEMSs members, and dear Colleagues,
as you probably know, the next edition of the iEMSs conference will be held in Brussels, thanks to the organisation efforts of our members Ann van Griensven and Jiri Nossent.
The dates have been announced: 5 – 9 July 2020!
Soon the conference website will be also announced and we will start the call for sessions and workshops.
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.

8th International Congress on Environmental Modelling & Software
Toulouse, FRANCE – 10-14 July 2016
iEMSs 2016 is the official biennial conference of the International Environmental Modelling & Software Society, sponsors of the high impact journal, Environmental Modelling & Software. iEMSs 2016 is co-sponsored by The Consortium of University of Toulouse (INP, University Paul Sabatier), National Center for Scientific Research(CNRS), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), SO-Toulouse, the regional and national government organization, and the host organizations, INPT-ENSEEIHT and ECOLAB Laboratory. The theme for the conference is “Supporting Sustainable Futures” and we hope to see a lot of exciting new development and tools for supporting our future. The conference is organized around a series of themes, streams, and sessions. Key streams include:
Model development and modelling frameworks • Integrated Environmental Modeling • Climate Change Modeling • Environmental Modeling Uncertainty Issues, optimization, sensitivity analysis • Data mining, machine learning, GIS, remote sensing • Environmental Modeling for decision making and engaging the public • innovative Software • Algorithms for Environmental Modeling • Applications of Environmental Modeling
You may either submit an abstract or a brief technical paper (8 page max) for either oral or poster presentation. Accepted technical papers will be published in the conference proceedings. To submit your abstract or paper now, please visit the conference web site:
Please email the conveners with your questions and inquiries:

Dan Ames is the co-convenor of iEMSs 2014 together with Nigel Quinn and he’s sharing with us some of his experience in getting things done. This is an excerpt from a mail he wrote to the organisers of iEMSs 2016. I am publishing it here for future reference.
0) You and a very small group form the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) now. For example, in my case it was me and Nigel and Andrea. (3 people only to keep it simple)
The next iEMSs conference will be held in Toulouse, July 2016. The conference location was selected after a long evaluation process, where different candidate locations competed to host iEMSs 2016.
We are now looking for a city to host iEMSs 2018, and the bidding process is open. The whole procedure is explained in detail in the link document: iEMSs 2018 – call for hosting
The iEMSs Conference Committee, chaired by our VP Dan Ames, is in charge of evaluating the bids and to make a decision.
