A good colleague since many years and invited speaker at AGSE 2012, Prof. Dr. Jaishanker Nair, organises the XI International Conference on Ecological Informatics (ICEI 2020), 17-21 November 2020, in
Thiruvananthapuram the capital of the state of Kerala, India. The theme is: Integrating Ecology, Technology and Society for Transformative Changes Towards Sustainability. It will be co-organized by the International Society for Ecological Informatics (ISEI) and the C V Raman Laboratory of Ecological Informatics, IIITM-Kerala, India.
