WCNRM 2018 Official Website - Home


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.
