Linking Human and Earth System Models for Global Change Analysis

Monday, July 19, 2021 (All day) to Wednesday, July 21, 2021 (All day)
Online, Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4)

The Aspen Global Change Institute (AGCI) is currently accepting applications to participate in its upcoming virtual workshop, “Linking Human and Earth System Models for Global Change Analysis”. Held July 19-21, 2021, this workshop will bring together researchers working on a range of strategies to improve the coupled modeling of human and Earth systems. 

An open registration application is available for people interested in participating in this workshop and/or submitting a scientific poster for its public lecture event. The application deadline is June 20, 2021.

Workshop themes include:

(1) Identification of critical feedbacks between human and earth system processes across scales;

(2) Relative importance of human-earth system feedbacks in the uncertainty of future outcomes;

(3) Implications of human-earth system feedbacks on long-term trend modeling in the next generation CMIP and scenario design.

Participants will collaborate virtually through facilitated dialogues, individual surveys, a poster session, a live public lecture, and opportunities for informal networking. Workshop participants will also initiate a synthesis paper to highlight new insights, key challenges, and promising research directions in linking human and Earth system models for global change analysis.

The public lecture event will be virtually held on July 20, 2021, from 3:00 - 4:30 PM (EDT): The virtual poster session will run from 3:00 - 3:30 PM (EDT), followed by a public lecture (topic and lecturer to be defined soon) from 3:30 - 4:00 PM (EDT), finalizing with Q&A with the lecturer and casual networking from 4:00 - 4:30 PM (EDT).
