We would like to draw your attention to the MCED award for ecological
modeling, which is now announced for the seventh time:
    http://www.mced-ecol...rg/?page_id=941
Young modelers can apply, who finished their bachelor, masters, or PhD
degree within the last 3 years. New since 2015: The prize is divided
into two categories:
1) For PhD and Postdocs. The 'main' prize is endowed with *500 EUR*
(currently about 550$), the following prizes will be MCED textbooks.
2) For bachelor and Master students. The best nominee in this category
will win *250 EUR* (currently about 275$), the following prizes will be
MCED textbooks.

The intention of the award is to foster the development and application
of modern ecological modeling methods that can help to expand the
understanding of complex ecological dynamics. With this focus, the MCED
award follows the eponymous textbook for ecological modeling which has
been published by Springer Publishing House and which provides a
curriculum for ecological modeling for students, either for a university
course or for self-learning.

The MCED editors together with Springer Publishing House invite young
ecologists who:
- analyze ecological phenomena using ecological modeling approaches in
an innovative way.
- apply new modeling methods and techniques and thereby contribute to
applied or theoretical ecology
- use modeling frameworks to bridge the gap between basic science and
application enhance the understanding of complex ecological processes
and dynamics

As application, please mail-in the form which is available on
www.mced-ecology.org under the section award. A committee, formed by the
editors, the president of the GfÖ (Ecological Society of Germany,
Austria and Switzerland) and representatives of the GfÖ Young Modelers
Group will decide on the submitted proposals by End of Septembert. The
award ceremony will be held during the next GfÖ-Conference in Ghent,
Belgium (joint Conference with BES and necov). Detailed information on
how to apply and what conditions must be fulfilled can be accessed under
http://www.mced-ecol...rg/?page_id=941.

Please note, that applications must be mailed in by September 3rd 2017
at the latest to award@mced-ecology.org

best regards,
Hauke Reuter, Fred Jopp and Broder Breckling
