University of Thessaloniki
The workshop is organised by AUTh and will be hosted at the School of Biology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece (http://www.auth.gr/).
Aim of the workshop
Training on setting up ECOPATH models and addressing potential data issues.
This course is aimed at partners involved in ecosystem modelling (AUTH, IU and HCMR) using ECOPATH models and all else interested
Who should attend?
Partners who will (eventually) be responsible for setting up and running the ECOPATH models and potentially Observatories Personnel responsible for collecting the data,
Desirable background and skills for Observatories personnel joining the workshop:
- Background: Biologists/oceanographers/fisheries scientists (preferably with an understanding of ecological processes in the marine environment)
- Skills: basic knowledge and understanding of ecological modelling (and eager to learn).
Software and background requirements from modellers:
- Software: Having EwE installed and running in personal computers
- Expertise: Attendance of EwE school, access to previous models (ECOSPACE) and papers
What we expect to achieve in the workshop?
The participants are expected to leave the workshop having an understanding of the kind of input data needed to set up, parameterize and balance their ECOPATH models, the processes described, as well as the output tables and graphs produced.
