About the conference

The theme of the conference is “Dimensions of Disaster Risk Reduction and Societal Resilience in a Complex World.”

IDRiM 2017 adopts an interdisciplinary approach, and encourages contributions from all realms of natural, social, health, humanitarian, and other sciences, to promote understanding of how best to manage the risk that natural hazards pose to societies.

The interdisciplinary approach reflects that society´s resilience rests on the personal preparedness, and physical and mental health of its individual members. The social fabric of communities enables individuals to prepare for, cope with and adapt to the consequences of natural hazards. Understanding natural hazard risk, robust disaster risk monitoring, crisis communication and critical lifeline management are elements fundamental to society´s resilience. These in turn rest on institutions that provide the formal governance framework, necessary for efficient legal and political responsibility.

IDRiM2017 aims to provide a forum for fruitful exchange of expertise and opinions on every aspect of risk management. The programme will be varied, from key note lectures and expert panel discussions to a wide selection of oral and poster presentations on various topics. Furthermore, the conference provides a special opportunity to young scientists (e.g. graduate students and postdoctoral researchers) through the “Young Scientists Session (YSS)”, where all presenters are expected to give both an oral presentation and poster presentation, and get feed-back from participants of the conference. All YSS presentation participate in the YSS Best Presentation Competition.

We look forward to welcoming you to Iceland and will do our utmost to make IDRiM 2017 a memorable and rewarding experience for all those interested in relieving the threats posed by natural hazards throughout the world.
