At the INQUIMUS 2021 workshop scientists and practitioners working in different fields will advance in cross-fertilization scientific concepts, methods and tools and to share best practices in different application contexts.

Key questions driving the discussion during the workshop will be:

  • What are the needs of decision advisors/makers and from a science perspective for comprehensively assessing and managing compound and systemic climate-related risks that may lead beyond adaptation limits?
  • What are the gaps in existing risk assessment methodologies in the context of climate-related risks beyond adaptation limits?
  • What are experiences that showcase the spectrum of risk management options from incremental to transformational risk management?
  • (How) can existing risk assessment methods and tools be further developed (or need to be dropped) to address these gaps? And/or must risk science transform itself?

Call for abstracts

Participation is mainly by invitation. However, we would like to provide room for additional participants to present their findings. Interested participants should send an abstract (max 400 words), discussing the following issues:

  • Motivation for application and relevance to guiding questions listed above
  • Methods applied in transformational risk management
  • Achievements and challenges
  • Scientific merit and insights

Please submit your abstract by May 15, 2021 to:

Should you have submitted an abstract for INQUIMUS 2021, which was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, your abstract will be evaluated for this year’s event, unless you decided to withdraw your submission or to submit an updated/new abstract. Please send us an email to indicate your preference.

Successful applications will be informed by June 2021.


The workshop will be moderated to foster a highly interactive and generative event. Conventional presentations will play a minor role. Invited keynotes will present the state-of-the-art of particular methods followed by a focused discussion on current achievements and challenges. Case studies will be presented as posters and will accompany the workshop to provide further insights into the application of methodologies.

The workshop will take place in Laxenburg, Austria.


Tuesday, 30. November (late afternoon) until
Thursday, 2. December 2021 (mid afternoon)

Location and Venue

International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis
Schlossplatz 1
