LANDIS-II Training Workshop: Nov. 7-8, 2016 in Madison, WI


Recommended Posts

The LANDIS-II Foundation is organizing a training workshop for new LANDIS-
II users in Madison, WI in November. The training will be held on Monday,
November 7, and Tuesday, November 8 and follows the Society of American
Foresters (SAF) National Convention, which is also held in Madison this
year (http://www.xcdsystem.com/safconference/website/).

The LANDIS-II training is for those interested in learning how to use the
LANDIS-II forest simulation model (http://www.landis-ii.org/). The course
will be led by Brian Miranda (USDA Forest Service) and Dr. Brian Sturtevant
(USDA Forest Service), with additional instructors to be determined. The
course will cover parameterizing, simulating landscapes, and analyzing
outputs of multiple LANDIS-II extensions, including forest succession,
fire, wind, harvesting and insects.

The total cost of the 2-day training session is $300 and includes two
complementary lunches and a copy of the latest LANDIS-II training manual.
Sessions will be held at the Pyle Center Conference Center on the UW-
Madison campus. Participants will be expected to bring their own laptop
computer with LANDIS-II installed (instructions provided).

If you’d like to reserve a spot for the training session, please email me
at brmiranda@fs.fed.us. Those that responded to the earlier pre-
announcement should have been contacted individually to confirm their
interest (if not, contact me). Registration will be done by email, with
payment instructions to follow. Please register early if you’d like to
attend, as the training is limited to 21 participants.
