The RESIN project and, more specifically, the simulation model that will be heavily applied in the project were presented at the International Congress for Environmental Modelling and Software (iEMs).
Werner had the opportunity to give a presentation "A simulation platform to assess forest resilience" at the iEMs 2016. The conference was held in July 2016 in Toulouse (France) and attracted a large crowd of scientists from various fields. A broad range of topics - from data mining tools to to participatory modeling - was covered by the participants. However, the use of models and software was ubiquitous, which allowed fruitful cross-discipline discussions.
And, the icing on the cake for a bunch of nerdy scientists was the visit of the Aeroscopia Museum in Toulose, where one had a chance to have a closer look at a Concorde (those guys had style!).
In a nutshell, the conference was fun, there were many insightful discussions but also some time for thinking about new ideas while enjoying one of the beautiful parks of Toulouse.
