The Capsis documentation

1. Using Capsis: documentation for the end-users

This section is for the Capsis end-users who were given a Capsis installer (Zip or IzPack jar version) by a Capsis modeller (see the Capsis charter). Your installer generally contains only few models (the other models in Capsis are not all free). For a complete and up to date list of projects, see the models page.

2. Developing in Capsis: documentation for the modellers

This section is for the Capsis modellers. You have the complete version of Capsis including all the models thanks to the Capsis charter. You can find here documentations about Capsis, Java and various tools used in the Capsis project as well as reports, training courses and various other documents.

5. Reports of Capsis / FOREM annual meetings

The Capsis annual meetings take place each year during the FOREM meeting (formerly CAQSIS). All the members are invited to talk together about the current / active / short term beginning projects. Every meeting results in a report that you can find below.

FOREM : Forest And Modeling

FOREM is the animation network of French-speaking researchers and developers involved in the modeling of forest-wood systems in their environments.

Its objective is to create opportunities for meetings and exchanges around the study of forest dynamics and the genetic, environmental and silvicultural factors that control it. Topics also cover interactions with the socio-economic sphere: forest-wood sector, ecosystem services, risk management, territories. Thesis and job offers are regularly sent to the network's mailing list.

The members of the Capsis project, a simulation platform for forest growth and dynamics models, meet within the framework of this network.

The FOREM network is an inter-organism and multidisciplinary scientific animation tool supported by INRAE's ECODIV department (formerly INRA's EFPA department). From 1999 to 2019, this network was called the CAQ network and then CAQSIS.

The Capsis platform modellers have been meeting each year since 1999, first in a dedicated Capsis meeting around April, then since 2011, it joined with the annual meeting of the CAQ network (Gérard Nepveu - INRA Lerfob, Nancy) to become the CAQSIS meeting (Céline Meredieu, Mathieu Fortin (until 2015), Francis Colin (2016-2017), Thiéry Constant and Francois de Coligny), itself turned into the FOREM meeting in 2020.

Reports of the meetings :

The CAQSIS meetings reports on the INRA EFPA department web pages are also available here.
