This interdisciplinary conference will present the new advances in the modelling of the Global Change, that combines Geosciences and Economics, with a perspective view from the history of science – given the novelty of their interrelations– and from political science– given the impact of the model outputs in the public sphere. The conference will gather together speakers and attendees from Europe and North America in Porquerolles, one of the most beautiful islands of the French Riviera. About 150 participants are expected to attend. Its originality and attractiveness will lie in the mixing of scientists concerned with the same topics but coming from disciplines far apart (from Physical and Natural Sciences to Social and Human Sciences). Speakers will use clear and understandable language while maintaining a high scientific level. This 5-day long conference will facilitate contacts and stimulate intellectual exchanges, especially among the young researchers, and future collaborations.
