IIASA Workshop at PEEX Conference

The 3rd Pan-Eurasian Experiment (PEEX) Science Conference & The 7th PEEX Meeting will be held in Moscow, Russia from 19 to 21 September 2017



The 3rd PEEX Science Conference will bring together professional and scientific experts under research themes related to atmosphere – land ecosystems – aquatic - anthropogenic activities – Northern societies in the Northern Eurasian region. As a part of the conference program we are organizing a workshop on “Systems Analysis for the Arctic” hosted by IIASA.

The 7th PEEX Meeting is aimed to take the next steps for PEEX implementation. The PEEX vision includes establishing and maintaining long-term, coherent and coordinated research activities, observation networks and educational activities across the PEEX domain.

IIASA workshop ”Systems Analysis for the Arctic”  

The complexity of the dynamic global system poses significant societal, science, policy and governance challenges for the fragile Arctic. Global-scale social, economic and technological changes all contribute to the transformations of the Arctic system’s climate, environment, economic development and societies. Conversely, changes in the Arctic environment impact our global climate and, in turn, affect other regions and systems across the Earth.  

Systems analysis (SA) is a wide perspective and challenging concept for solving complex problems. The SA includes theory, methods, and processes for practical applications. For example, SA can include a set of interdisciplinary tools that comprise handling the interplay of environmental, technological, social, economic, and geopolitical components. SA also envisages to incorporate various stakeholders’ participation, both from public and private sectors, applied in methods and processes for balancing a variety of perspectives and for studying of options available to decision-makers. SA is useful at the interface of science and policy, and serves for reaching common understanding for actions to be taken.  

The integrative themes of the workshop cover:

1) Balancing social, economic, technological, environmental, and geopolitical developments in the Arctic for the well-being of the region; 

2) Inter-linkages and feedback's between the Arctic and global developments. In particular, the topics include transportation, trade, infrastructure, and resources such as hydrocarbons, minerals, and fisheries.  

The workshop is integrated to the PEEX Conference with session/s and presentations during the conference introducing the workshop topic, and the workshop is open to all conference participants.  

The aim of the workshop is to: 

1) Present SA case studies applicable to the Arctic (invited presentations);

2) Discuss joint work on the Arctic within the workshop thematic framework.  

The workshop also identifies gaps in knowledge and methodology, and needs for systems analysis tools for decision-makers and other stakeholders. The outcome of the workshop includes a report and a peer-reviewed scientific article. The workshop integrated to the PEEX Conference will include invited keynote and other oral presentations.  

Participants: Scientists working on the Arctic and boreal regions, systems analysis scientists, stakeholders from policy and business.
