HONOLULU, HAWAII – As previously announced, Tsunami Society International will hold its Fifth Tsunami Symposium (ITS ISPRA 2012) on September 1-3, 2012, at the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (EC-JRC)in Ispra, Italy, . The Symposium will focus primarily on Tsunami Risk Analysis and Disaster Management, and on the need for a holistic approach in coping and addressing also the array of tsunami risks facing vulnerable areas in all of the world’s oceans and seas.
Tsunami Society International expanded the themes of its Tsunami Symposium to include – in addition to theoretical and technical research papers – reports on the social dimensions of needed policies and humanitarian actions in helping with early warnings and disaster recovery. Furthermore, in view of the recent (2011) tsunami disaster in Japan and the destruction of the Fukushima-Daichi nuclear power plant, the Symposium will also address the tsunami risks to nuclear power plants, as well as evaluate the preparedness measures instituted after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami disaster. The expanded scope of the Tsunami Symposium will provide a unique opportunity for participants to contribute more effectively and make recommendations towards strategies and synergies needed in mitigating the destructive impacts of tsunamis around the globe.
