The organizing committee, and the convenors, Pr Véronique Bellon-Maurel (Montpellier Supagro), P. Roux (Cemagref), are happy to welcome you to Montpellier, Languedoc Roussillon, France,for the Ecotech & Tools 2011 conference!

EcoTech&Tools will be the opportunity to learn and exchange about the latest research related to environmental and integrated assessment of various anthropogenic complex systems such as human-interacting biosystems (agriculture, forestry, etc ), water management systems, land management. Special focus will be made on these three areas as well as on methodological bottlenecks dealing with life cycle analysis applied to complex systems of industrial and territorial ecology: how to simplify methods, how to evaluate emergent technologies, how to deal with uncertainties. Hot research topics such as the status of water, soil and biodiversity in LCA of complex biosystems will be discussed. Finally, the gap will be bridged between environmental and social assessment towards integrated assessment.
