Bringing to light
a very hot topic

Recent natural disasters, such as the 2008 Midwest floods and Katrina and Sandy Hurricanes in the United States, the earthquakes in Sichuan, China ,the Canterbury earthquakes in New Zealand, and a host of other modern natural disasters have all highlighted the vulnerability of even modern infrastructure to natural hazards.

Promoting
a Game shift

Protecting infrastructure from extreme events calls for an integrated approach to hazard assessment considering the correlated nature of natural hazards, cascading hazards and cascading effects.

In a world of increasingly interdisciplinary research

This conference aims to bring together specialists from different scientific fields in order to promote “out of the box” thinking and cross-fertilization.
