WCNRM2018

As in the past, the World Conference on Natural Resource Modeling(WCNRM)  is bringing together scientists and stakeholders interested in mathematical and numerical modeling of renewable and exhaustible resources. The WCNRM will be a forum for exchanging ideas on modeling issues related to environmental and natural resources.

The WCNRM 2018 is co-organized by Resource Modeling Association and South China Agricultural University. It will be held on June 9-13, 2018 in Guangzhou, China. The theme of the conference is biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. It aims to look for a socio- ecological solution especially in developing countries where economic growth and environmental quality are competing objectives. The conference will pay particular attention to biodiversity conservation, ecological resilience, management of the protected areas, and sustainable utilization of natural resources.

ORGANISATION AND CONTACTS

The RMA is an international association of scientists working at the intersection of mathematical modeling, environmental science, and natural resource management. We formulate and analyze models to understand and inform the management of renewable and exhaustible resources. We are particularly concerned with the sustainable utilization of renewable resources and their vulnerability to anthropogenic and other disturbances.

One of the national key universities, South China Agricultural University is situated at Guangzhou.The campus covers an area of over 8250 mu (550 hectares), and the total gross floor area is over 1.37 million square meters. The university has 22 colleges (departments). The number of staff and faculty of the university is over 2,900. The total enrollment of regular students is over 42,000.

There are 147 faculty and staff members in College of Economics and Management, including 119 professional teachers (90% is Doctor), 43 professors, 50 associate professors, 24 doctoral supervisors.In recent five years, the CEM faculty has chaired and completed more than 52 majors, key or general national projects. The total funding surpassed 45 million RMB.

There are 14 members in Research Center of Forest Economics, SCAU, including 5 professors and 7 associate professors. Most of the members are young scholars and have been studied abroad. In recent 5 years, the center has chaired more than 30 research projects and published more than 60 research papers.
