What about WCNRM 2017?



As for past editions, the World Conference on Natural Resource Modeling brings together scientists and stakeholders interested in mathematical and numerical modeling of renewable and exhaustible resources.


The WCNRM2017 will be a pool for exchanging ideas to help inform management ecosystems, natural resources and their exploitation. One of the WCNRM2017 main goals is to foster cooperation among disciplines of ecology, economics, management, mathematics and computer sciences.

Organising Committe

rma_blanc_smallThe RMA is an international association of scientists working at the intersection of mathematical modeling, environmental science, and natural resource management. We formulate and analyze models to understand and inform the management of renewable and exhaustible resources. We are particularly concerned with the sustainable utilization of renewable resources and their vulnerability to anthropogenic and other disturbances.

logo-pau-solThe Pau Costa Foundation has the ambition to be an information platform on forest fire management, as well as an instrument to disseminate and investigate in fire ecology. Our objectives are the research in the field of forest fire ecology, the creation of knowledge, tools and techniques for the management of forest fires, and the dissemination of this knowledge to the technical world through training and dissemination instruments.

logo-certec-upc2CERTEC is an organization whose objectives are research and education in the various fields of environmental and technological risk assessment. It is located at the Barcelona East School of Engineering (EEBE) at new Diagonal-Besòs Campus of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya· BarcelonaTech (UPC). Our areas of interest are wildland fires, toxic releases, industrial fires, explosions, etc. Among other activities, we develop mathematical and numerical models that will ultimately help managing accidental environmental impact.
