world seastemsThis conference is organised by “World Seastems”, a EU FP7 funded research programme  and will be held in Paris from June 16 to June 18, 2014.

More than 80% of world trade volumes occur by sea nowadays. Despite this enormous importance, little is known about the precise distribution and evolution of maritime flows. This international workshop on maritime flows and networks wishes to gather worldwide scholars and experts from all scientific and disciplinary backgrounds to introduce and discuss their researches on various related issues. This is a multi-disciplinary event which will investigate how maritime flows and networks of any kind can be analyzed in order to answer major industry and wider societal challenges.

Prof. Gipouloux, member of the UrbaChina programme, will take part to this event.
