Local planning committee

The conference will be hosted by the Environment, territory and infrastructure unit (ETBX RU) of the IRSTEA Research Center in Cestas, near Bordeaux. It is one of 9 such centers in France. ETBX researches the regional dynamics linked to renewal of environmental issues and climate change. Given the complexity of the issues addressed, ETBX favors interdisciplinary approaches that combine human and social sciences (economy, sociology, geography, political science) with agronomy, statistics, applied mathematics and engineering sciences.
