iEMSs 2022 Conference - Brussels, Belgium

iEMSs 2016


Toulouse, FRANCE

Every two years, the International Environmental Modelling & Software Society (iEMSs) holds its international congress. The next meeting will be the 8th International Congress on Environmental Modelling and Software in Toulouse, France, on July 10-14, 2016. The event is being convened by Dr. Sabine Sauvage and Dr. José-Miguel Sánchez-Pérez from the University of Toulouse.

The purpose of the meeting is to foster discussion and the interchange of challenges, solutions, ideas, and new methods and techniques in environmental modeling and software. The theme of the conference is environmental modelling and software for supporting a sustainable future.

The iEMSs is the premier professional society on integrated environmental modeling and software and its biennial conferences are officially endorsed by the scientific journal Environmental Modelling and Software (Elsevier).

The aims of the iEMSs are to:

  1. Develop and use environmental modelling and software tools to advance the science and improve decision making with respect to resource and environmental issues, placing emphasis on inter-disciplinary and the development of generic frameworks and methodologies that integrate models and software tools across issues, scales, disciplines and stakeholders with respect to resource and environmental issues
  2. Promote contacts among physical, social, and natural scientists, economists, and software developers from different countries and coordinate their activities
  3. Improve the cooperation between the sciences and decision makers/advisors on environmental matters
  4. exchange information in the field of environmental modelling and software among scientific and educational organizations and private enterprises, as well as non-governmental organizations and governmental bodies

To achieve these aims, the iEMSs:

  1. Organizes international conferences, meetings, and courses in environmental modelling and software
  2. Publishes scientific studies and popular scientific materials in the Environmental Modelling and Software journal (Elsevier)
  3. Hosts a website which allows members to communicate research and other information relevant to the Society's aims with one another and the broader community
  4. Delivers regular information to members through the website and mailing lists

The 8th International Congress on Environmental Modelling and Software is the premier event of the iEMSs, which is only held once every two years. It is this Society’s opportunity to directly promote contacts among modeling and software researchers and scientists from different countries, governmental and non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions; and exchange technical information and promote cooperation between the sciences. That’s why, we hope that this International Congress will be a great success.
