The 21st International Congress on Modelling and Simulation (MODSIM2015) is currently underway at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, Broadbeach, Queensland and Hamilton Ecology lab is leading the way. The theme for this years global conference on modeling and simulation is ‘Partnering with industry and the community for innovation and impact through modelling’. Dr Grant Hamilton and Dr Peter Baxter are both participating with Grant leading two streams titled ‘Modelling for surveillance and eradication of invasive species’ and ‘Unmanned aerial systems for environment and ecology’. Hamilton Lab also has a total of 4 papers at the conference including an invited paper for both Grant and Peter. The conference papers are titled:
“Quarantine and surveillance strategies for plant pathogen detection and control”, Baxter, P.W.J., Parnell, S. and Hamilton, G.
“Fine-tuning of unmanned aerial surveillance for ecological systems”, Baxter, P.W.J. and Hamilton, G.
“Assessment of crop insect damage using unmanned aerial systems: A machine learning approach”, Puig, E., Gonzalez, F., Hamilton, G. and Grundy, P.
“Evaluating the effectiveness of UAVs for pest management”, Weiss, J., Clements, D., Dugdale, T., Hamilton, G., Gonzalez, F., Hauser, C. and McCornack, B.
All papers will be made available under the publications tab at the top of this page once MODSIM has concluded. Congratulations and well done to Grant and Peter and the entire team at the Hamilton Ecology Lab.
