CALL for IAG GRANTS: International Conference on Analysis and Management of Changing Risks for Natural Hazards

Padua, Italy, 18-19 November 2014


The International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG/AIG) offers 2 grants of 250 Euros each to PhD students in Geomorphology from Europe (except Italy) who are willing to take part in the Conference on Analysis and Management of Changing Risks for Natural Hazards, to be held in Padua, Italy, on 18-19 November 2014.


The Conference provides an opportunity to discuss multi-hazard risks and multi-disciplinary research results on the effects of changing of hydro-meteorological risks and their effects on planning strategies. The conference focus 1) on natural hazard process understanding and innovative methodologies for quantitative hazard and risk forecasts, and 2) on the integration of engineering, socio-economic and human sciences in risk management and prevention planning in practice.

The Conference represents the culmination of the EC projects CHANGES (www.changes-itn.eu) and IncREO (www.increo-fp7.eu) and will provide a forum for exchange of ideas related to effective risk management strategies.

Priority will be given to applicants who have a special interest in the field of geomorphological hazards and risks, to be proved by their CV.
