Forum on Scenarios for Climate and Societal Futures

20-22 June 2022, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Laxenburg, Austria

The Forum on Scenarios for Climate and Societal Futures brings together a diverse set of communities who are using or developing scenarios for use in climate change and sustainability analysis to:

  • exchange experiences, ideas, and lessons learned;
  • identify opportunities for synergies and collaboration;
  • reflect on the use of scenarios; and
  • identify knowledge gaps for future research.

The Scenarios Forum is open to anyone using, developing, or interested in scenarios to carry out research or policy analysis related to climate change and sustainability. Abstract submissions are now being accepted (, through 14 February 2022. A call for meeting participation will follow later.

The research community has proposed more than 50 sessions for the Scenarios Forum 2022, to which abstracts can now be submitted. Sessions formats include Research Sessions to which abstracts for research presentations can be submitted, or Workshop Sessions, focusing on discussing a specific topic, to which shorter panel contributions can be submitted.

The Scenario Forum 2022 is presented by the International Committee on New Integrated Climate Change Assessment Scenarios (ICONICS) and is hosted by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).
