This year, the overarching topic is: Acting on the ambitions to a net-zero EU: roadblocks, challenges and opportunities.
We encourage skill workshop submissions which fit the following sub-themes:
- Introductory skill workshops: These skills workshops should be aimed at master’s or early PhD students that are taking a first approach to the field. Especially interesting topics are skill workshops related to the introduction to energy system models / integrated assessment models, energy systems analysis, scenario design, model categorisation, hand-ons sessions on specific models, etc.
- Advanced skill workshops: These skills should be aimed at researchers that already know the field but wanted to get a new perspective on the modelling. Especially interesting topics are skill workshops related to multi-physics models, models with high spatio-temporal resolution, new market approaches, integration of energy demand and supply, going from optimization to simulation models, integration of human behaviour and other non-market equilibrium paradigms in the models, modelling policy interventions, integration of climate change impacts on energy system models, incorporation of new clean technologies (H2, BECCS), etc.
- Soft skill workshops: With other non-technical but often as important or more than the technical skills such as: how to communicate results to different target audiences, how to organise a co-creation activity, what legal aspects should be taken into consideration, ethics, gender, and social impact modelling, etc.
The submission portal and more information about the guidelines is available here.
The deadline for submission is the 20th June 2022.
