Courses

Agenda of Ecopath 30 years workshops at the Institute of Marine Science (ICM-CSIC).

Courses listed below will be hosted in room P31 except for the Ecotroph course which will be hosted in room P41. Just follow the signs to the find your room on the days of the courses.

Participants will be issued a certificate upon completion of the course.


Introductory course: Ecopath and Ecosim

Dates: 4 and 5 November 2014
Location: room P31 (floor +1)

This course introduced basic concepts and modelling procedures. Participants were provided with the principles behind EwE, and how to design, parameterize and analyze an ecological model with Ecopath. Introductory concepts of the temporal module Ecosim were presented.

Teachers: Villy Christensen (UBC, Canada), Marta Coll (IRD, France), Sheila Heymans (SAMS, UK), with assistance from Jeroen Steenbeek (EII, Spain)

Advanced course: Ecosim

Date: 6 November 2014, full day
Location: room P31 (floor +1)

This advanced course explored the deeper workings of Ecosim, the temporal module of EwE. Participants learned how to use the advanced options of the Ecosim model, how to fit models to time series, and how to interpret Ecosim outputs.

Teachers: Villy Christensen (UBC, Canada), Steve Mackinson (CEFAS, UK), with assistance from Sheila Heymans (SAMS, UK)

Advanced course: Ecospace

Date: 7 November 2014, full day
Location: room P31 (floor +1)

This advanced 1-day course introduced novel approaches developed under the spatial-temporal module Ecospace, in particular, the habitat capacity model and the spatial-temporal data framework.

Advanced course: Contributing to Fisheries Management with EwE

Date: 13 November 2014, full day
Location: room P31 (floor +1)

This advanced one day course will present how EwE tools can be used in the context of fisheries management. In particular, the Management Strategy Evaluation (MSE) plug-in, the uncertainty plug-in and the value chain will be presented. Participants will learn how to parameterize and analyse results from these modules.

Advanced course: EcoTroph

Date: 13 November 2014, full day
Location: room P41 (floor +1)

This advanced one day course will present the main principles and applications of the model EcoTroph. Participants will learn how to parameterize and analyse results from EcoTroph using the EwE plug-in and the analog R-code.

Teachers: Mathieu Coll├ęter (UBC, Canada), Didier Gascuel (Agrocampus, France)
