In this session we have representative presentations from one or more of several different genres of integrated modeling systems. These genres include model integration systems, landscape simulators, urban growth simulators, backcasting multi-endpoint scenario models, agent-based modeling systems, and modeling libraries. In addition we have a presentation that compares and classifies models according to purpose or intended use, adaptability to different problems, spatial and temporal framework, data and computing requirements, analytical methods, handling of uncertainty, and ease of use. Finally, we have a presentation representing Canadian, Australian, EU, and US viewpoints on the challenges to institutionalization of integrated modeling for across-jurisdictional and across-sectoral applications.
