Moscow Winter Academy on Age-structured Modeling and Management of Biological and Economic Resources (MWA2018)

Moscow Winter Academy on Age-Structured Modeling and Management of Biological and Economic Resources 2018 (MWA 2018) invites a new generation of scientists – master students, PhD students and early career scientists with the doctoral degree from around the world – to study contemporary concepts of the management of natural and economic resources and to engage in discussions of methodological and applied challenges in this field. 

MWA 2018 consists of three days of educational program and a workshop. The total load is 32 academic hours. MWA 2018’s language is English. MWA 2018 is organized in the framework of and substantially contributed and supported by the NordForsk-funded TerMARisk project.

Educational Program

Three days of lectures and seminars (4 academic hours of lectures, 2 academic hours of seminars and 2 academic hours of home work per day).
MWA 2018 focuses on approaches to mathematical modeling of age- and size-structured population dynamics and control. It covers both theoretical aspects (existence and uniqueness of solutions, necessary conditions for optimality, numerical methods) and applied aspects (models of optimal harvesting of trees and fish, vintage capital dynamics).
