      1st International Conference
      Computer Simulation in Risk Analysis and Hazard



      6-8 October 1998
      UIMP, Palau de Pineda, Valencia, Spain


      The analysis and management of risk and the mitigation of hazards have
      recently become very important due to
      the greater complexity of systems of all kinds and the increased
      potential for disasters on a world wide scale.
      People have become much more concerned about risks to health and the
      environment and are requiring answers,
      not only for the present generation, but for generations to come. There
      are many questions regarding the safe and
      efficient use of resources in addition to environmental concerns
      generally, which fall within the province of risk
      assessment and management.

      The development of computational methods and the ability to model
      systems more precisely now enable hazards to
      be quantified, their effects to be simulated and risk analysis to be
      pursued with greater accuracy, providing for more
      effective risk management. These developments are not only important for
      all areas of human endeavour, but have
      particular relevance to environmental issues where the risks involved
      are increasingly seen as substantial. Effective risk
      management and the mitigation of possible hazards have become a high
      priority of government concern.

      This Conference is concerned with all aspects of risk analysis and
      hazard mitigation ranging from specific
      assessment of risk to hazard mitigation associated with both natural and
      anthropogenic hazards. Strategic issues
      of sustainable development, efficient use of resources, energy economics
      and education are also of interest.


      Papers are invited on the topics outlined and Abstracts should be
      submitted no later than 17 February 1998.
      Abstracts should state clearly the purpose, results and conclusions of
      the work to be described in the final paper.
      The final paper should emphasise results of work wherever possible,
      rather than simply methodology. The final
      acceptance will depend upon the full-length paper.
