Chesapeake Modeling Symposium 2012 Abstract Deadline

#1 Post by ckharris » Tue Mar 13, 2012 4:53 pm

A reminder that March 15 is the deadline for abstract submission, and early-bird registration for the ChesMS-12 meeting to be held May 21 – 22, in Annapolis MD.

Overall scope and aims of the meeting:
The Chesapeake Community Modeling Program (CCMP) seeks to improve modeling tools and related resources specific to the Chesapeake Bay, its watershed, and connected environmental systems by fostering collaborative open source research. Toward this end, the CCMP is convening the third bi-annual Chesapeake Modeling Symposium as a venue to identify and showcase existing modeling efforts as well as communicate how models are used as decision support tools by different developer and user groups.

The meeting will include invited plenary talks, and the following special sessions to which abstracts can be submitted:
  • Modeling Alternative Future Land-Cover and Land-Use Scenarios to Inform Chesapeake Bay Restoration Efforts
  • CBP Community Model Application to Local TMDLs
  • Measuring and modeling biogeochemical cycles at land-estuarine interfaces: Current status, needed improvements, and applications to decision making and estuarine resource management
  • Linking Biogeochemical, Physical, Economic, and Fisheries Models for Ecosystem-based Management of Coasts and Estuaries
  • Modeling approaches to water resource/water supply issues
  • Science and Interfacing with the Public
  • Big Science and the Chesapeake Bay
  • Development of Fringing Habitat Modules for Use in Eutrophication Models
  • CBP Model Development for the 2017 Assessment and Beyond
  • General Modeling Aspects of the Chesapeake Bay and Estuaries with Similar Settings
  • Sediment Dynamics Models for Chesapeake Bay, its Tributaries and Marshes
  • Interfacing between modeling, management and the public: TMDLs, politics, litigation and conflicting stakeholder interests
See http://www.chesapeakemeetings.com/CheMS2012/index.php for more information and to register and submit your abstract.

Thank you,
