7th Annual Workshop of the AK "Young Modellers in Ecology"
The Ecological Society of Germany, Austria and Switzerland invites participants to the upcoming annual workshop of the AK YoMos. Since last year, the "Young Modellers in Ecology" (YoMo) are officially a specialist group of the Ecological Society of Germany, Austria and Switzerland (GfÖ). As such they are proud to present the preliminary programme of the seventh annual meeting. This workshop provides the opportunity to discuss one's scientific work in a relaxing atmosphere; thus not only young people are invited, but everybody who feels young.
The workshop will consist of talk, poster and discussion sessions around the topic "Connecting Theory, Modelling and Data". The keynote lectures will be given by international experts in their field such as Miguel Zavala (Universidad de Alcala, Spain), Dries Bonte (Ghent University, Belgium), Frank Hilker (University of Bath, UK) and Hans Joachim Poethke (University of Würzburg, Germany). The philosopher of science Mathias Gutmann (Karlsruher Institut für Technologie) will broaden the scope of the meeting by giving a closing lecture.
Especially graduate students and recent post docs from all fields related to modelling and theory are encouraged to present and discuss their scientific findings. The YoMo meetings are ideal to exchange thoughts and experiences in an informal environment.
