E2mC presentation at the INQUIMUS Workshop 2018

E2mC will be presented at the INQUIMUS Workshop 2018 taking place on 3-5 December 2018 in Venice, Italy.

The INQUIMUS 2018 Workshop will illustrate and discuss how quantitative and qualitative assessment methods could boost a transition toward a new generation of multi-hazard risk, vulnerability and resilience assessments. Particular attention will be paid to complex systems and network sciences’ methods (e.g. Bayesian networks, system dynamics, agent based models, machine learning) and to innovative digital technologies (e.g. big data applications, social media analytics, geospatial visualization tools) unlocking new knowledge and improving the understanding, analysis, communication and validation of risk information.

These topics will be addressed by scientists and practitioners working in different fields (geographers, physicists, statisticians, informatics, economists, environmental, social scientists etc.), to advance in cross-fertilization of concepts and sharing of best practices in different application contexts (environmental management, disaster risk reduction, emergency planning and climate change adaptation).

Key questions driving the discussion during the workshop will be:

  • Why do we need multi-risk assessments? (for example to improve risk perception, decision-making under uncertainty, adaptive policies, risk governance)
  • What are the gaps? (for example limitations of current multi-hazard/-risk assessment approaches)
  • What is new / innovative? (for example multi-risk tools considering different types of interactions with climate change, disasters and resilience management, spatial/temporal scales)
  • How can IT help us in understanding multi-risk dynamics and in validating? (for example big-data applications, machine learning, visualization tools, cloud platforms, GIS and Earth Observation)

Stay tuned!
