June 14-17, 2016
The 2016 International Conference of the Resource Modeling Association will be held June 14 – 17 in Flagstaff, Arizona, U.S.A. “Quantitative Modeling for Managing Natural Resources in an Era of Climate Change” is the theme of this conference. Four keynote speakers will address the use of mathematical models to study biodiversity and the effects of climate change on various ecosystems and offer recommendations for managing them in a sustainable manner.
Flagstaff is situated on a high plateau near the base of the San Francisco Peaks and also within easy driving distance of the Grand Canyon. An important part of the conference will be an excursion to Grand Canyon National Park for a presentation by park service scientists on managing the natural resources in the park. There will be time for sightseeing and hiking, and the conference banquet will be held in the park.
