The MCED award for ecological modeling was announced in 2011 for the first time. Once a year young modellers can apply, who finished their bachelor, masters, or PhD degree within the last 3 years. The intention of the award is to foster the development and application of modern ecological modelling methods that can help to expand the understanding of complex ecological dynamics. With this focus, the MCED award follows the eponymous textbook for ecological modelling which has been published by Springer Publishing House in 2011.

The MCED editors together with Springer Publishing House encourage young ecologists who:

- analyze ecological phenomena using ecological modelling approaches in an innovative way.
- apply new modelling methods and techniques and thereby contribute to applied or theoretical ecology.
- use modelling frameworks to bridge the gap between basic science and application
- enhance the understanding of complex ecological processes and dynamics

to apply for the award.
