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
Papers will be organised under four principal themes:
• Climate change
