Bilbao, 2nd – 13th May 2016

The Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) in collaboration with Conservation International and the University of Vermont, is announcing the 2016 edition of the International Spring University on Ecosystem Services Modeling.

The International Spring University (ISU) on Ecosystem Services Modelling is the fourth edition of an annual 2-week intensive course that is building a new generation of scientists and policy analysts who can effectively use coupled human-environmental models in research, policy and management to address and solve sustainability problems.

In the three previous editions, applications came from professionals in the field, academics and governmental sectors.

This edition will emphasize the theory and practice of collaborative, integrated modelling on networked repositories, applied to concrete ecological and social issues of interest to the participants and to the larger community built around the ARIES project.

This video features the insights of the International Spring University on Ecosystem Services Modelling advanced training course.

BC3 is leading the development of some of the most advanced cloud-based data and modeling methodologies to quantify and value the flows of services that ecosystems provide to societies.

The ARIES team combines an innovative simulation platform and a domain-specific programming language to address the task of integrated social ecological systems
