We intend this meeting to bring together researchers and practitioners in a variety of fields including integrated assessment modeling; impact, adaptation, and vulnerability assessment; climate modeling; and social and economic development. We are particularly interested in researchers actively involved in using socioeconomic scenarios in their research, and those with possible interests in further development of these scenarios in the future. Highest priority for this meeting are topics that would contribute most directly to the development of the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs) discussed in the background document, including SSP narratives, quantitative inputs to SSP-based model simulations, and integrated assessment or impact model simulations of possible SSPs.
Due to size constraints for the meeting, participation may have to be limited. We are therefore asking anyone interested in attending to submit an abstract (for possible presentation) or paragraph describing interests in the meeting, (for those wanting to attend but not speak). Given that a substantial proportion of the meeting is likely to be devoted to breakout group discussions, there will not be a large number of speaking slots. However, we may consider holding a poster session, and in addition plenary and breakout group discussions will be most useful if they involve participants active in research relevant to meeting goals. Therefore, abstracts and/or paragraphs describing your interests will help us ensure that participants represent the most relevant areas of expertise.
Requests to participate can be made through the online submission system. Submissions before September 16 will receive full consideration. Beyond that date, submissions will be considered as space allows. We will respond to requests to participate in early October to indicate whether we will be able to accommodate you at the meeting, and in which capacity.
