The theme is quantitative modeling for managing natural resources in an era of climate change.
Four keynote speakers (Hugh Possingham, Garciela Ana Canziani, Jim Cushing, and Shandelle M. Henson) will address the use of mathematical models to study biodiversity and the effects of climate change on various ecosystems and offer recommendations for managing them in a sustainable manner.

The central objective of the program is to gather researchers in stochastic analysis, mathematical finance, financial economics, and insurance mathematics to exchange ideas on the current state-of-the-art in commodities and environmental finance. This will be accomplished by three 5-lecture Short … Continue reading
What impact would a stagnant population have on GDP? Is GDP the best measure of ‘well being’? Can mathematical models guide policy makers in answering these questions? Continue reading
Designing and operating efficient transportation networks is one of the most urgent practical challenges facing societies in the twenty-first century. Continue reading
The proposed workshop will target three main areas: modelling wildfire impacts, fire management and the effects of climate change. The timeliness of the workshop should be clear, since there is some urgency to the need to improve the modelling and management tools required to mitigate wildfire risk to populated areas.
