    PICES 2014 Summer School
    on End-to-End Models for Marine Resources Management and Research

    August 26–29, 2014
    Gangneung-Wonju National University (GWNU), Korea

    End-to-End (E2E) Models have applications in a wide variety of disciplines, such as natural resource management, wildlife conservation and agriculture.  E2E models have become popular recently in marine systems because they provide an approach that can mechanistically link climate forcing and higher trophic levels, like fish.  In advanced models, they can be extended to include human behaviors and harvests, creating a complex socio-ecological system model.  E2E models have become desirable due to the interest in ecosystem-based management, and possible because of improved and more accessible computing power, and increased understanding of the complex interactions and processes that govern ecosystems.

    This summer school is intended to help graduate students and early-career scientists understand the types of E2E models, their advantages and shortcomings, and provide basic knowledge for advanced applications.  Students will gain an appreciation of the complexity of ecological interactions in the sea, and the implications and uncertainty that result in complex models from imperfect understanding of these systems.  The 4-day summer school will include an introduction to marine ecosystems (e.g., concept of the ecosystem), describe marine ecosystem modeling approaches, parameter optimization of marine ecosystem models, and illustrate application of models. The course consists of lectures, seminars, and hands-on training in parameter optimization and E2E model application.

    The official language of the school is English.
