Humanity is striving for a better and more sustainable future for all. Initiatives like the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and the European Union’s focus on societal challenges or disaster-resilient societies exemplify this.
Call for Sessions
For this year’s DMDU workshop, we are following a two-step process:
March 5 – April 1: We invite proposals for sessions.
May 1 – June 15: We will invite abstracts to be submitted to the accepted sessions.
We are now inviting proposals for sessions related to the theme of ‘Securing sustainable futures’. Session proposals can focus on specific methods or approaches and how these are or could be used across different application domains, or instead focus on the treatment of deep uncertainty within a specific domain or context. Practice and research-based sessions are welcome. Possible session topics include:
- Resilience engineering under deep uncertainty
- Designing emergent energy transition pathways
- Applications of DMDU approaches in peace, security, and defense
- Uptake and use of DMDU approaches in practice
- Preparing for high-end sea level rise
- Coping with more frequent low end sea level rise
- Designing transformative adaptation pathways
- Institutions and governance arrangements enabling forward-looking decisions
A session proposal should:
- Include a short, descriptive title,
- List the co-conveners of the session (max 3),
- Outline the main topic of the session (max 200 words).
We look forward to your session proposals.
