2020 World Conference on Natural Resource Modeling (WCNRM 2020)

2020 World Conference on Natural Resource Modeling (WCNRM 2020)

The World Conference on Natural Resource Modeling, organized annually by the Resource Modeling Association (RMA), brings together scientists, stakeholders, and students interested in mathematical modeling of renewable and exhaustible resources.

For the first time in South America, the World Conference on Natural Resource Modeling 2020 (WCNRM 2020) will be held January 8-10, 2020 in Valparaíso, Chile, hosted by the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María. The theme of the conference is “Decision support methods for natural systems at risk”.
The conference focuses on how quantitative applied research from diverse disciplines can assess different levels of risk, support decisions oriented to minimize them and propose approaches to operationalize sustainability concepts. Special attention is given to fishery, ecology, biodiversity, wildfires, water, pollution mitigation and natural resource management in general. One of the main goals of the WCNRM 2020 is therefore to foster cooperation among the disciplines of mathematics, economics, management, ecology, energy and computer science, among others.
