                Modeling Complex Systems:
                Conference and Workshop

                 July 31 - August 4, 2000

                    Montreal, Canada

                     (Please circulate)

This conference focuses on the theory, methods, and techniques in
complex systems in earth sciences.   With rapid developments in
theory and computational technology, modeling has entered a new era and
become indispensable for addressing many complex issues, such as
Spatiotemporal Dynamics of Ecological Systems, Ecosystem Management,
Health, Global Climate Change, and Sustainability.  The magnitude and
complexity of these issues pose grand challenges in the theory and
of modeling.  Meeting these challenges requires integration of relevant
theories with powerful modeling techniques, and makes essential the
and reuse of models as well as the collaboration of modelers.

We are very pleased to have Dr. S.E. Jorgensen, founder of the
Society of Ecological Modelling (ISEM), delivering a keynote
entitled "The problems associated with modelling complex systems and
ideas and experience on how to overcome them". The organizing committee
also working on an additional keynote speaker or two.

The conference is being advertised and administered strictly through
electronic means i.e., the web and e-mail.  If you are interested and
the complete story please go to the conference/workshop web  where you can
register, submit the title of a paper, or submit an abstract.

Please forward this message to anyone you think might be interested.
