As in the past, the World Conference on Natural Resource Modeling (WCNRM) brought together scientists and stakeholders interested in mathematical and numerical modeling of renewable and exhaustible resources. The WCNRM provided a forum for exchanging ideas on modeling issues related to environmental and natural resources.
The WCNRM 2018 was co-organized by Resource Modeling Association and South China Agricultural University. Held on June 9-13, 2018 in Guangzhou, China, the theme of the conference was biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. The main aim of this theme was to look for socio- ecological solutions, especially in developing countries where economic growth and environmental quality are competing objectives. The conference focussed particular attention on biodiversity conservation, ecological resilience, management of the protected areas, and sustainable utilization of natural resources.
Please pass this on to any qualified students who may be interested. I have available two four-year funded PhD scholarships to work with me at the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) and James Cook University, Townsville, Queensland, on projects relating to modelling the Great Barrier Reef.
The projects are:
Biogeochemical modelling of tropical marine ecosystems in the context of climate change
Modelling plastic pollution in the Great Barrier Reef
You can find details on eligibility and how to apply at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__staging-2Daims.jcu.edu.au_phd-2Dscholarships_&d=DwIFaQ&c=JnBkUqWXzx2bz-3a05d47Q&r=i9cdSV9X63v0hyQ3WdvBxCvbzrElKqc2CZovMFXdkA0&m=m6a5wGxtb1yXaGRn8Bu2MvvKulLTF53nNEkp6cnMlhI&s=g5pAO6uhy7oKglFcdYPr7aEorqlWo-PVprBJ4CzoNWo&e=
In addition to the eligibility requirements, I am looking for students who have a strong quantitative background, some programming experience, and an interest in marine science. These are very well supported PhD scholarships and AIMS is a world-leader in tropical marine science and a great place to work. I'd be happy for students to contact me with any questions.

Under the Fisheries Act 1995, the Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA) is responsible for the stewardship, protection and conservation of Victoria’s fisheries resources and for ensuring that the management and use of these resources is effected in an objective, efficient and ecologically sustainable manner.
The VFA is seeking a suitably qualified supplier(s) to undertake scientific assessments of the blacklip and greenlip abalone commercial fisheries, which are important economic contributors to the Victorian community, with the commercial sector exporting approximately $20 million worth of product annually, and supporting a regional work force throughout the State.
An invitation to tender was released on the Tenders Victoria website on 1 September 2018, closing 30 November 2018. Please see attached link for your information:
Postgraduate Course “Consumer – Resource Interactions in Times of Global Environmental Change”
2 – 6 December 2018
De Bergse Bossen, Driebergen, The Netherlands
This one-week course will illustrate how adopting a consumer-resource approach can change our understanding of interactions, and how adaptive processes can be important in understanding both academic and applied problems in ecology. This edition of the course will focus on consumer-resource interactions in times of global environmental change at three levels of integration: the individual-population level, the community-ecosystem level and the socio-ecological level.
The topics will be introduced by world-renowned experts, with a focus on the latest developments and ongoing research efforts. The introductions will provide the starting point for practical work by the participants to make the acquired knowledge operational. To this end, sub-groups are challenged to develop ideas for their own research: analyzing their own data, writing a proposal, planning an experiment, developing a model or writing a paper.

– On Sunday evening, we start with warming-up lectures.
– On Monday, the basics of consumer-resource interactions and the topics will be introduced. Then groups will be formed.
– During the following days, there will be lectures on specific topics, followed by discussion. The rest of the day will be spent on the practical work, under the supervision of the lecturers and the organisers.
– On the last day, the groups present their practical work to all participants.
