Dear ISIMIP community,

owing to the current situation, we invite you to register for the first online-only cross-sectoral ISIMIP Workshop from 15-18 June 2020, below. This new format comes along with quite a number of challenges, while at the same time offering great opportunities to establish climate-friendly ways of fruitful collaboration. A major challenge is to schedule an agenda accounting for about 15 different time zones.

Workshop cornerstones:

  • Latest ISIMIP developments: we will present the development of ISIMIP3 climate forcings (bias correction, counterfactuals) as well as recent ISIMIP2 publications. 

  • ISIMIP3 group III socioeconomic forcing data: we will continue with the break-out groups from our Paris-workshop in 2019 putting special focus on adaptation- vs non-adaptation scenarios.

  • A virtual poster session to highlight your recent research advances, collaboration plans, or any other idea you want to share within a 3-min pitch.

  • To deepen the ISIMIP3 focus on detection and attribution of climate impacts, we are happy to announce keynotes by Michael Burger (Executive Director Sabin Center for Climate Change Law) on Climate law and attribution.

  • Kasia Tokarska (Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science ETH Zürich) will give a keynote on climate sensitivity of the Earth system and how it relates to CMIP6 simulations.

  • Of course, we will leave plenty of time for intense discussions and socializing within sectoral sessions.

The feedback you can provide below will help us to schedule the workshop. Please register until 24 May 2020 to make sure we can plan an efficient and well-organised online event.

We hope you are all staying healthy and safe and are looking forward to meeting you online.

During the conference, we will provide your posters - potentially as well including a photo of you - on an password protected part of the ISIMIP website or on a cloud folder, which will be only accessible by the conference participants. Your posters will be archived latest three months after the end of the conference.


During the event, the participants might be invited to create a group collage for the purpose of event documentation using the ISIMIP website. The resulting collage will be published on the conference website and might be shared with other websites.

We are looking forward to a successfull interactive workshop with you!
