We are pleased to announce that registration is open for the 2019 CEID-IDEAS Computational Modeling Workshops, taking place Monday May 13th to Friday May 17th at the Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia (Athens, GA).  Comprised of two back-to-back modules, this series introduces students, faculty, and healthcare professionals to the field of quantitative modeling as it relates to the dynamics of infectious diseases.  Through a combination of lecture and laboratory practicums, participants will synthesize the advanced techniques of statistics, computer science, and mathematics to help them frame biological questions in mathematical parlance, embark on analyses of these models, and work with a diverse array of data using advanced computational methods. Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Write code in R to perform research analysis
  • Create reproducible workflows
  • Extend understanding through independent study using web-based resources
  • Express hypotheses as mathematical models
  • Manipulate and analyze diverse data types

Participants can register for one or both modules:

Module 1:
Introduction to Scientific Programming Workshop I.
Introduction to Scientific Programming being held May 13th -15th, and

Module 2:
Modeling Infectious Diseases
held May 15th – 17th.


Full details, including registration, cost, schedule, and accommodations can be found in the online program guide (

United States Society of Ecological Economics

Advancing the Integration of Ecosystem Services and Livelihood Adaptation.

Presented by Dr. Elizabeth G King
Wednesday December 5th, 1pm EST

The concept of ecosystem services has become a cornerstone in dialogues and policy making in conservation, natural resource management, and sustainable development. Most methods for ascribing values to the benefits provided by ecosystems are based on a conceptual “flow model” in which natural capital yields services, which in turn yield valued benefits to people. However, in sectors such as rural development and urban planning, there are increasingly vocal criticisms of outcomes that arise when decisions based on optimizing ecosystem services are put in to practice.

In this talk, I will examine two limitations of mainstream conceptualizations of ecosystem service flows, and some methodological tools and cutting edge research from other disciplines that can help overcome those limitations. The first limitation is a failure to account for the range of capabilities that people need in order to co-create ecosystem services, and the second is a failure to formally consider how the benefits and values are distributed among members and segments of society. Principles from Sustainable Livelihood Analysis and the nascent field of adaptation studies can complement ecosystem service analyses and valuations to give more holistic and realistic understandings of ecosystem service flows and who benefits from them.
