Extended abstracts (about 600 up to a maximum of 1000 words and 1-3 figures) in pdf format and a short summary of approximately 100 words should be submitted online at the IAMC’s webpage for the 11thannual IAMC meeting.

The purpose of the IAMC Annual Meeting is to (1) present and discuss the state of the art in integrated assessment modeling, (2) review the status of ongoing community activities, including multi-model studies and the activities of the IAMC Scientific Working Groups, (3) facilitate interaction with collaborating communities, and (4) revisit the priorities of the integrated assessment modeling community.

As with past meetings, a major part of this year’s meeting will be devoted to parallel sessions on cutting edge integrated assessment model development and research. And, as with last year’s meeting, we will hold a poster session that is open to poster presentations covering any topic of interest (with posters grouped thematically). Parallel sessions will be organized thematically and are expected to include six to eight short presentations, potentially including some invited presentations, and a group discussion of research priorities. The poster session has been a highlight of annual meetings, offering a unique opportunity for in-depth conversations about new work.

The selected focus topics for the meeting are described below. The meeting’s organizing committee will assign topics to parallel sessions and the poster session based on the number and quality of submitted abstracts.
