Source(s): Tsunami and Disaster Mitigation Research Center

As the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the 2004 tsunami-devastated regions continues, questions remain on how this rebuilding effort contributes to building disaster-resilient communities and better environment as well as preserving the legacy of one of the worst 'natural' disasters of the century for future generations.

Entering into its 4th year, the international workshop & expo on Sumatra tsunami disaster & recovery is being held in commemoration of the 5th anniversary of the 2004 tsunami tragedy. It is expected to bring together experts, researchers, policy makers, and practitioners from around the world to share knowledge and experience to improve earthquake and tsunami disaster management strategies thereby reducing risks in tsunami-prone regions. Topics to be convered include but are not limited to:

* Review of Recoveries in Tsunami-Affected Countries
* Early Warning Systems
* Geotechnical and Hydrodynamical Modeling
* Disaster Risk Reduction & Management
* Disaster Preparedness & Education
* Community-Based Disaster Risk Management
* Environmental Management
* Geohazard / Georisk DataBase Development
* Climate Change
* Disasters and Food Security
* GIS & Remote Sensing in DRR
* Medical Service and Nursing in DRR

Prospective authors are invited to submit a one page abstract of not more than 500 words in English outlining the scope of their paper and the important points they believe would benefit the interested readers.

Abstracts and full papers (camera ready) should be submitted to aiwest-dr@tdmrc.org or office@tdmrc.org.

The workshop is organized by the Tsunami and Disaster Mitigation Research Center (TDMRC), Syiah Kuala University, Banda Aceh, Indonesia, in cooperation with Kobe University, Japan and will be held in Banda Aceh, Indonesia from 23-25 November 2009.
