In almost all of our decisions we make use of models
that reflect the simplified understanding of our environment. Every
model and every decision has uncertainties. Recent decline of
environmental resources and the ecosystem services our environment
provides are a consequence of managing a considerably complex system:
our environment and our planet.
How can researchers and scientists that professionally deal with complex systems cope with these questions of environmental resource management that our societies are faced with?
These and many other related questions will be discussed at this conference.
The aim of the meeting is to enhance understanding of
environmental processes and decision making by fostering the
discussion and interchange of challenges, solutions, ideas, new
methods and techniques, and future research lines in environmental
modelling and software.
