The MFA ConAccount Conference 2012

Socio-Economic Metabolism

September 26th to 28th 2012
Darmstadt (Germany)


Less than three months to go till the 2012 Section Conference in Darmstadt, Germany. The program is shaping up well, and there will be three very interesting keynote speakers including Mohan Munasinghe, Ottmar Edenhofer and Marina Fischer-Kowalski.


The main theme of the conference is socio-economic metabolism, and we are sure researchers and practitioners will enjoy discussing advancement of methods for analyzing the dynamics of physical interactions between socio-economic-environment systems and their drivers on multiple scales, as well as applying those methods on issues of strategic relevance for governments, industry and societal stakeholders.


The conference location is the Technische Universität Darmstadt, one of Germany‘s major technical universities. The university is situated in the city of Darmstadt, which is located in the heart of Germany, just 30km away from the metropolis Frankfurt/Main and just 20 minutes from the international airport Frankfurt/Rhein-Main.

We look forward to meeting you at the conference.
