8th Biennial Congress of the International Environmental Modelling and Software Society (iEMSs 2016)
July 10, 2016 @ 08:00 - July 14, 2016 @ 19:00
MODEXTREME will be present at iEMSs 2016, the 8th International Congress on Environmental Modelling and Software, hosting B1 workshop (“2016 Agricultural Modelling Hackathon“) and contributing to B2 session (“Advances in Agricultural Modelling“).
iEMSs 2016 is an established international event that aims to foster scientific discussion on challenges, solutions, ideas, new methods and techniques, in environmental modelling and software. iEMSs is the biennial congress of the International Environmental Modelling and Software society, and this year theme is supporting a sustainable future. The iEMSs is the premier professional society on integrated environmental modeling and software and its biennial conferences are officially endorsed by the scientific journal Environmental Modelling and Software (Elsevier).
Advances in Agricultural Modelling
Global food security, climate change and extreme events are raising new challenges for modelling and decision support in agricultural systems. Recent developments aim to incorporate advances in data science, as those of open, linked and big data technologies with agricultural modelling. Agricultural models need to be improved to accommodate new needs, and their software implementations also need to facilitate massively parallel computations, inter-comparison in ensemble modelling, and integration into larger frameworks.
