Discover the English version of the last issue of the series ‘Les dossiers d’Agropolis International’ : ‘Complex systems - From biology to landscapes’, n° 23 (80 pages, February 2019)

This issue of ‘Les dossiers d’Agropolis International’ thus showcases the scientific actors conducting research activities related to complex systems throughout the Occitanie region—for the first time. The scientific community includes 44 research teams (research units, service units, hosting and project teams, and observatories). Several federative research bodies oversee the scientific activities of the teams: an institute, six laboratories of excellence (LabEx), an equipment of excellence project (EquipEx) and a Convergence Institute. Finally, several French national and European research infrastructures and data and computation centres essential for managing complex systems are also based in Occitanie.

This Dossier will provide readers with an overview of these regional scientific stakeholders through specific examples of activities they develop in relation to complex systems in three main thematic areas: Data collection and management; Understanding and analysing complex systems; and Different applications of the complex systems approach.

Scientific coordination : Nicolas Arnaud (CNRS), Bertrand Jouve (CNRS), Jean-Pierre Müller (CIRAD)

The Dossiers d’Agropolis International collection is a flagship vehicle for presenting and promoting the expertise of Agropolis International members on major scientific issues. Each Dossier is devoted to a specific theme. The research units and training courses concerned are showcased, alongside the research and associated results. Contributions of civil society, the economic sphere and local authorities in the target areas are also highlighted.

Next issues (to be published in 2019) : ‘One Health: scientific skills in Occitanie for a Global approach’ ; ‘Marine sciences and coastline’.

Save the date - The Second International Crop Modelling Symposium (iCROPM2020) will be held February 3-5, 2020 in Montpellier, France

Four years after the 1st International Crop Modelling Symposium in Berlin (iCROPM2016), crop modelers from around the world will meet at the iCROPM2020 Symposium in Montpellier, France to exchange on advances in crop modelling and identify challenges and new opportunities for future research.

iCROPM2020 will focus on recent improvements and applications of crop simulation models to better support agricultural production and food security under global change. All types of crops and cropping systems (arable, grasslands, intercrops) and world regions will be considered, including high and low inputs systems, with relevance for large agricultural enterprises to smallholder farmers.

Save the date: MISS-ABMS 2019/Multi-platform International Summer School on Agent-Based Modelling & Simulation for Renewable Resources Management, 16-27/09/2019, Agropolis International, Montpellier

This summer school is about learning the different skills required for building agent-based models for renewable resources management. It is oriented towards a participatory use of models and simulation and participants will be asked to work in small groups.

During this two-week course, working in small groups and with participatory approaches, participants learn the basic skills necessary to develop their own models.

Hosted by Agropolis International, this training, which takes place every year in Montpellier, is co-organized by CIRAD and IRSTEA, with the contribution of other French universities and research organizations.
