ICUR 2016 (International Conference on Urban Risks) / First announcement / Call for Abstracts

Lisbon 30 June - 2 July, 2016

The International Conference on Urban Risks, ICUR 2016, intends to gather practitioners, researchers and other specialists that study or deal with different risks on urban areas, in order to share their experiences and practices, to discuss risks from diverse perspectives and to cope with the latest results of research.

The conference topics will range from the concepts and methods on risk management to the risk assessment of a variety of urban risks, like the risks induced by natural and technological hazards, environmental, health and societal risks, and also comprising topics dedicated to risk treatment and communication. This wide range of topics makes this conference a valuable gathering place for all players involved in urban risk related issues, as well as for different stakeholders. 

The conference will be bilingual (English and Portuguese), although the use of English will be encouraged due to the selection of the best papers to be published in a peer-reviewed international journal. The event will be held in Lisbon on 30 June - 2 July, 2016.
