CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Abstract submission deadline extended to May 27, 2017!
The 13th APRU Multi-Hazards Symposium 2017, held at Peking University (Beijing, China) on August 28-29, 2017, will concentrate on how to combine governance and state-of-the-art science and technology for more efficient disaster risk reduction. The Pacific Rim is never short of earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, landslides, volcanic eruptions and bush fires, and the historic disaster events indicated that government could and should play a more important role in coping with these natural hazards. Association of academia with governance on public education, infrastructure construction, disaster management, emergency rescue and hazard recovery will be the next “hot” point in the field of disaster risk reduction.
More collision of thinking, more sparks of wisdom. We cordially encourage the experts, researchers, engineers and governors to submit papers on a range of topics consistent with the thematic pillars of the symposium.
