Welcome to the RMA

The Resource Modeling Association was established over a quarter of a century ago and is unique among scientific societies because it brings together scientists and mathematicians from a diverse range of disciplines with a common interest in studying natural resources from a sustainable-use perspective. The natural resources of our planet are under incredible pressure to supply burgeoning human needs and this will only continue to increase.  Challenges are ever-present to ensure that resource use remains sustainable and that vital ecosystem services critical for our well-being, species biodiversity essential for the well-being of the global ecosystem, and ecosystem resilience to perturbation are conserved as far as practicable through responsible action. Such action must be informed and it is here that the integration of the quantitative and biological sciences can play a determining role.

Half a year has passed since we held our 20th annual meeting in Bordeaux, France where participants were treated to a superb and diverse range of presentations about the practical application of modeling to real world problems within a convivial collegiate atmosphere of friendly exchange of ideas and opinions. Preparations are now well advanced for our next meeting in June 2016.

I encourage you to consider joining with like-minded people and becoming a member of the RMA to assist you to grow your own professional network and participate in being part of the solution to the global challenge of natural resource management.

Sincerely,

Luc Doyen

RMA President

NRM Journal going from strength to strength

Our journal, Natural Resource Modeling, has done it again! Our 2014 Impact Factor continues to rise, this time to 1.196. I can’t emphasize enough how helpful and important it is for you to promote our journal – make researchers aware of it, encourage your colleagues to submit papers, and reference articles we publish whenever appropriate.

2015 Bordeaux

The 2015 International Conference of the Resource Modeling Association was held at the University of Bordeaux from 29th June to 1st July 2015.

Sfécologie2016, the 2016 International Conference of the French Ecological Society
in Marseille (France), October 24-28, 2016

The Mediterranean Institute of marine and terrestrial Biodiversity and Ecology (IMBE, Aix Marseille Université – CNRS – IRD – Université Avignon) is the local organizer.

We expect this event to be the most significant event in 2016 for the ecological sciences in the French-speaking world – with about 1000 academics, students and stakeholders expected to meet in the splendid Pharo Congress Center for exchange and discussions around the latest advances in basic and applied ecological sciences.


Note that the conference will be held in English.


You can find on our
website the last news about this event with e.g. the lists of keynote speakers and symposia.

Our call for abstracts is now open and will remain so until April 20.


Looking forward to see you in Marseille in October!


Best wishes,

Described as the cradle of Catalan culture, Barcelona has a fascinating history and many heritage and contemporary attractions for visitors. The climate  is pleasant, being moderated by the maritime influence of the Mediterranean Sea. Environmental and social sustainability are key among initiatives in this thriving and forward looking city.
The city is readily accessible for international, EU and domestic travellers. You can get to Barcelona by plane, car, train or boat.  Barcelona International Airport (BCN), also known as Barcelona-El Prat Airport, is located 12 km southwest of the center of city, between the city limits of El Prat de Llobregat. The airport is accessible via public transportation (train and bus) from the center of Barcelona. It has also well serviced by private cabs and shuttle buses, and connects with the rest of provinces by long distance buses. Barcelona can also be reached by transport links from other regional airports, including Girona, Reus and Lleida -Alguaire. The city has direct railway links with a number of important international cities, including Paris, Zurich and Milan, and a high-speed train runs to Madrid, southern and eastern Spain. Barcelona Nord Bus Station is the main terminal for international buses. There is an excellent public transport network for getting around the city’s metropolis.
