%X Modeling heat transfer in porous media requires taking into account multiple-scale aspects inherent to porous media structures. Several methodologies have been developed to upscale the equations at a lower scale and to obtain upperscale models as it is outlined in a brief review based on a simple heat conduction example proposed in the first part of this paper. The more general and classical problem of heat transfer in porous media is reviewed in this paper with the emphasis on the fact that different behaviors and hence different models emerge at a given macro-scale, depending on the interplay of the various characteristic times and lengths characterizing the problem. Various classes of models are discussed and their relationships outlined. Extensions to more complicated problems of heat transfer in porous media
are discussed: coupling with mass diffusion, effect of heat sources, radiation, boiling, etc.
