The symposium addresses the new theoretical and applied methods to compute hazard, vulnerability and risk analysis that can be used in connection with tsunami early warning systems and with long-term policies for tsunami damage mitigation. Special attention will be also given to the contribution that can be provided to this issue by an improved knowledge of the tsunami sources, by research on historical events and of recent tsunami cases, by enhanced tsunami simulation techniques as well as by basic aspects of tsunami generation and propagation theory.

Public information: "Poster Summaries and Discussion" will be at 15:00-15:45 on Friday (7 May).
