2nd State-and-Transition Simulation Modeling Conference

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 8:30am to Thursday, September 18, 2014 - 5:00pm

Following in the footsteps of the innaugural 2011 STSM conference, this conference will once again bring together users of landscape STSM tools - including ST-Sim and its predecessors (VDDTTELSA and Path Landscape Model) - to provide opportunities for sharing experiences with different applications of the STSM approach. The conference proceedings will be published as a special issue of AIMS Environmental Science.

The event will include an optional one-day training session on the use of ST-Sim, followed by two days of talks by scientists and managers from across North America with a keynote address by Dr. Tom Loveland, director of the USGS Land Cover Institute. Topics will include modeling ofland use/land cover change, forest and rangeland management, wetlands management, fuels planning, ecological restoration and reclamation, invasive plant management, wildlife habitat management, climate change and carbon modeling. We will also spend some time presenting and discussing future directions for the development of STSM tools. This is an opportunity to find out who is doing what and how they are doing it, and to provide input into future developments in landscape modeling technology.

Registration and details are provide at the conference web page.
