Eleventh Annual Meeting of the IAMC 2018
November 13th – November 15th, 2018
Hotel Ribera de Triana, Seville, Spain

The IAMC 11th Annual Meeting will be held from November 13th to November 15th, 2018, in the city of Seville, Spain. The meeting is kindly hosted by the European Commission, Joint Research Centre.

Meeting purpose

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 both multi-model studies and the activities of the IAMC Scientific Working Groups;
  3. facilitate interaction with collaborating communities;
  4. evaluate and revisit the priorities of the integrated assessment community.

The IAMC annual meeting is a scientific meeting intended for peer sharing and vetting. The meeting is open to researchers from organizations involved in integrated assessment modelling and their research collaborators. The meeting is designed to allow researchers to share developments in methods, models and data. The meeting is not intended for the general public or press. Individual researchers are free to share their findings with the press as they wish outside of the meeting. But, at the meeting itself participants are expecting to be able to freely discuss their work off the record. Hence, press-related activities, including filming and direct quotes, are not appropriate for this meeting.


The Annual Meeting will start in the morning of Tuesday, November 13th.
It will last until the morning of Thursday, November 15th.
The afternoon of Thursday, November 15th will be devoted to working meetings of several IAMC Scientific Working Groups. IAMC members are welcome to attend.
