Dear open-minded modellers,

The following conference in October 2021 (deadline 31.05) might be
interesting to some of you who are critical of standard techno-economic
modelling paradigms:

THE MODELLING OF ENERGY TRANSITION
CULTURES / VISIONS / NARRATIVES

https://www.uni-muenster.de/LMET/conference/index.html

"This intersectional conference will offer a deep probe of the variety
of technical and social layers pertinent to energy transition and
technology assessment alike. It will investigate their modelling of
narratives, transmedial representations, distribution concepts and
communicative strategies. To reach this aim, the conference will bring
together experts from a multitude of disciplines who are engaged with or
can contribute to facing the intriguing challenges of energy transition
in technology and economics, sociology and politics, but also from the
point of view of cultural and literary studies, theory of science, and
philosophy. In doing so, the conference will offer its participants an
opportunity to lay aside, for once, professional or disciplinary
restrictions and exchange their views in a cross-over context that,
ideally, creates a new collaboration profile for the sciences and the
humanities."

Best wishes,

Tom
