The International Society for Ecological Modelling Global Conference 2017

Submit abstract

Abstract Submission Deadline: 3 April 2017

Submit abstract

Abstracts submitted to the conference will be reviewed by the conference chairs, and if not selected may still be considered for the general sessions. Abstracts submitted to the general sessions will be reviewed by the conference scientific committee.Decisions on abstracts will be made one month after the close of the abstracts submissions.

Oral and paper abstracts are now invited on the following topics in Symposiums and General Sessions. They should be submitted using the online abstract submission system.

We  would like to invite participants to organize symposiums at Conference. To submit your Symposium please click here for further  information >>

The sessions will be organized in parallel according to hierarchical units of ecological systems, computational methods, and applied and related fields across different ecosystems:


  • Ecology in molecules and cells
  • Individual ecology in relation with physiology,  morphology, behavior, etc.
  • Population and community ecology
  • Ecosystem functioning and management (e.g., energy,  bio-geo-chemical cycle)
  • Misc.

Computational methods

  • Heuristic or data-based models
  • Process-based models
  • Statistics in relation with ecological modelling
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence
  • Input-output models and LCA

Applied and related fields

  • Conservation
  • Agriculture
  • Forestry
  • Fishery
  • Environmental Science
  • Ecological Economics
  • Disease and health
  • Ecotoxicology
  • Chemical ecology
  • Paleo-ecology

Successfully submitted abstracts will be acknowledged with an electronic receipt including an abstract reference number, which should be quoted in all correspondence. Allow at least 2 hours for your receipt to be returned to you.

Once the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors must register for the conference and present the paper at the conference.

For revisions or queries regarding papers already submitted

If you do not receive acknowledgement for your abstract submission or you wish to make any essential revisions to an abstract already submitted, please DO NOT RESUBMIT your abstract, as this may lead to duplication. Please contact us with details of any revisions or queries. Please quote your reference number if you have one.
