Activities for 2015

Six projects will continue to provide the scientific platform for the diverse research efforts the Evolution and Ecology Program (EEP) will conduct throughout 2015: Evolutionarily sustainable consumption; Integrated assessment of fishery systems; Equitable governance of common goods; Eco-evolutionary dynamics of living systems; Systemic risk and network dynamics; and Evolutionary vegetation modeling and management.

A highlight in EEP’s 2015 operations will be the Gordon Research Conference Speciation 2015, to be held during 15-20 March in Ventura, California, USA. Chaired by EEP’s program director Ulf Dieckmann and vice-chaired by EEP researcher Åke Brännström, this conference will be the world’s largest dedicated to speciation research.

EEP is closely involved in the design and planning of the conference Systems Analysis 2015, to be held during 11-13 November at IIASA. EEP Program Director Ulf Dieckmann is serving as vice-chair of the conference’s scientific committee.

Support for the young scientists previously involved in the Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) and the Southern African YSSP (SA-YSSP) will continue throughout 2015 to help them turn their research achievements into publishable manuscripts.

EEP will continue to contribute to the one-year ASA-Forum exploratory project on Systematic Misperceptions of Systemic Risk and the three-year cross-cutting project on Equitable Governance of Common Goods, which begun in 2014. EEP is collaborating with the Advanced Systems Analysis (ASA) and Risk, Policy and Vulnerability (RPV) Programs on Systemic Risk and Network Dynamics to build in-house capacity on systemic risk.
