Conference

3rd IMA International Conference on Flood Risk

Recent coastal and inland flooding events such as occurred in the UK, have highlighted the difficulties in forecasting individual and sequences of extreme events. The widespread and catastrophic flooding following the Japanese earthquake in March 2011 heightened the global public awareness of the limitations of existing flood defence infrastructure and flood warning systems.

The conference will provide a forum at which engineers, mathematicians and statisticians can meet to exchange views on this important technical area. The emphasis will be on new developments in the mathematical and statistical techniques applicable for assessing flood risk. The conference will be of interest to flood defence practitioners; flood defence managers; statisticians, mathematicians and civil engineers.

CALL FOR PAPERS

We look forward to contributions drawing upon diverse conceptual bases, including reliability theory, statistical analysis, mathematical modelling of flood flows, forecasting systems and techniques, and of course mathematics. Papers will be organised under four principal themes:

• Climate change
• Computational methods in flood forecasting
• Extreme events
• Uncertainty and reliability

Contributions that span these while addressing the overall conference theme are most welcome.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONTRIBUTORS:

Contributed papers will be accepted on the basis on an abstract (300-500 words), which should be submitted to the Conference Officer at the IMA (conferences@ima.org.uk) by 12 September 2014.

Submissions must contain the title, contact author e-mail address, author names, and author affiliations in the covering e-mail.

Authors will be notified of acceptance by 17 October 2014.

Final papers (camera-ready) are required by 27 February 2015 for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings. Further information on the format of the final paper will be forwarded once authors have been notified of the acceptance of their abstract.
