Tsunami science has progressed substantially after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the community of the tsunami specialists and of the researchers involved in tsunami studies has grown very much. This session is a forum for all of them and for all people with interest in tsunami hazard and risk mitigation to present the most recent results of tsunami research: case studies, tsunami generation by different sources, tsunami modelling, tsunami impact on the coast, theory and monitoring networks,early warning systems and tsunami forecast, tsunami catalogues from paleotsunamis to instrumental events
