EuroMarine workshop on spatial model fitting

EII will be co-organizing the EuroMarine workshop “Modelling for policy advice under a global change context: expert workshop on measuring and improving the fit of spatial-temporal aquatic ecosystem models” at the Institute of Marine Sciences (ICM-CSIC) in Barcelona. This event will take place on 3-5 June 2019, bringing together experts across different ecological modeling and spatial-temporal statistical approaches to discuss the state of the art and plan a way forward to improve spatial-temporal models for policy advice.

Details about workshop can be found here

Although the workshop is officially full, we have reserved a small number of spots for experts in the field of spatial-temporal model fitting. Please contact us via the EuroMarine website if you are interested in participating.

22-26 October 2018: Introductory and Advanced EwE courses

In October 2018 EII taught two courses, back-to-back: a three-day introductory course, and a two-day specialized course, on modeling with Ecopath with Ecosim:

1. INTRODUCTION TO FOOD WEB MODELLING WITH ECOPATH WITH ECOSIM
2. ADVANCED SPATIAL – TEMPORAL MODELLING WITH ECOSPACE

The introductory course discussed basic concepts and modelling procedures of aquatic ecosystems using the Ecopath with Ecosim (EwE) food web modeling approach. Participants were provided with the principles behind EwE (http://www.ecopath.org), and how to design, parameterize and analyze an ecological model with Ecopath. Introductory concepts of the temporal module Ecosim and the spatial-temporal module Ecospace will be presented.

The specialized course discussed in-depth principles of Ecospace, the spatial-temporal module of EwE. Special focus was paid to the new Ecospace niche model and fisheries management

6-8 November 2017: Introduction course to food web modeling with Ecopath with Ecosim

A three-day introductory course to food web modeling with Eopath with Ecosim was taught in Barcelona, Spain, from 6 to 8 November 2017. This course introduced basic concepts and modelling procedures of aquatic ecosystems using the Ecopath with Ecosim food web modeling approach. Participants were provided with the principles behind EwE (http://www.ecopath.org), and how to design, parameterize and analyze an ecological model with Ecopath. Introductory concepts of the temporal module Ecosim and the spatial-temporal module Ecospace were presented.
