In the light of the recent COVID-19 outbreak, the Center for Applied Mathematics of Mines ParisTech and the ETASP have decided to cancel the second edition of the International Summer School on Prospective Modeling and Energy Transition. We will be posting on this website any information regarding the 2021 edition of the Summer School.

The Summer School will last five days (from Monday June 15 to Saturday June 20) with four and a half days of work and a half-day of time off. A social dinner is planned on the Friday night and social activities will be organized on the Saturday.

Activities will include lectures and conferences, participant presentations, reading sessions and group exercises.

Lectures given by ETSAP members will present various country perspectives of long-term energy and climate issues. At a different levels, global issues and islands will also be addressed.

Participants will present a version of their research work (10-minute presentation / 15-20-minute discussion) and receive valuable feedback from fellow students and university faculty members.

A prospective study project will be conducted and students will have to work on it in groups during the week. The last half-day will be dedicated to an oral presentation of this project and possibly the first draft of an academic paper for submission to an international peer-reviewed journal (the most advanced proposal(s) may be continued in collaboration with the organizers up to the submission).

A detailed program of the Summer School will soon be available.

In the meantime, you can take a look at the Handbook of the 1st International Summer School on prospective modeling and energy transition which contains a full account of the previous edition:
