Call for nomination for the Lamberson Award 2017

The Rollie Lamberson Award celebrates the contribution of Professor Rollie Lamberson to the field of natural resource modeling and the growth of the Resource Modeling Association by recognizing each year the most outstanding paper in natural resource modeling in the previous two years. See  http://resourcemodeling.org/lamberson/ or below for more details.

  •  Only current RMA members are eligible for the award.
  • All papers published in Natural Resource Modeling during the previous two calendar years (namely 2015-2016) will be considered automatically provided at least one of the authors is a current member.
  • Papers published in other journals may be nominated for consideration provided at least one of the co-authors is a current member. To be considered, the submission must comprise:
  1. an electronic version of the paper in English,
  2. a nominating letter specifying why the paper is deserving of the Rollie Lamberson Award. Criteria below. 

Send your nominations to RMA presidence or to RMA contact from the website. The submission for the award 2017 will be closed on January 20, 2017.

The Lamberson prize will be delivered to the winners during the 2017 RMA conference to be held in Barcelona on June 6-9, 2017.

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.
