4th IMA International Conference on Flood Risk
12 Sep 2019 - 13 Sep 2019 • Swansea, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Institute of Mathematics & its Applications (IMA)
Abstract:
As in the recent publication of the IPCC AR5 report, flood risks have been again highlighted as one of the most perceivable indicators when it comes to the understanding of climate change impact. Research on flood risk has never been ampler, yet we still witness the growing causalities of severe flooding around globe on a yearly basis. The stark resemblance of the consequences between the two catastrophic flooding events in both Japan and Indonesia 2018, exposes a bitter reality that there are still knowledge gaps where both the academia and the practitioners need to fill, with no exception for even the developed world.

Continuing from the successful series of previous IMA Conferences on Flood Risk, the IMA is planning its 4th International Conference on this topic in 2019 to bring together engineers, mathematicians and statisticians working in the field. The conference intends to be used as a forum for participants to meet and exchange their views on important technical issues, new and emerging methods and technologies in assessing flood risks in a world that is being altered by the climate change and moving towards an uncertain future. The emphasis will be on new developments in mathematical modelling methods, statistical techniques in assessing flood risks, especially on quantification of flood risks with a nonstationary climate and modelling uncertainty. Methods and application of assimilating new data from cutting-edge new type of observations will be among the topics for discussion. The conference will be of interest to flood defence practitioners; flood defence managers; statisticians, mathematicians, civil engineers.
