Conferencia Internacional sobre Tsunamis en Málaga

La Conferencia Internacional sobre Mathematical Modelling for tsunami early warning systems (TsuMaMoS 2014) se celebrará en Málaga entre el 9 y 14 de abril de este año. A continuación adjuntamos toda la información de este evento.

Propagación de la onda de tsunami en el Mar de Alborán.
The goal of this conference is bringing together scientists from around the world with expertise or interest in Tsunami Early Warning Systems (TEWS) with a special emphasis on the North-Eastern Atlantic, Mediterranean and connected seas region (NEAMTWS). The conference aims at evaluating the current state of the art technology in fast tsunami computation for rapid (much faster than real time) tsunami forecasting. The scope includes mathematical modelling and numerical simulation of generation, propagation, and coastal amplification processes within the framework of TEWSs. In addition to these, other closely related topics such as monitoring, detection, operational forecasting, source inversion, public outreach, information exchange, warning issues, and tsunami hazard assessment will be discussed. The relevance and role of these topics in the development of structural and societal mitigation strategies and policies will also be addressed.

TsuMaMos 2014 Conference will be structured as follows:

(A) 3 Main Speakers (1h):

1. Patrick Lynett, USC (USA)
2. Francois Schindelé, CEA (France)
3. Stefano Tinti, Universitá di Bologna (Italy)

(B) 12 Invited Speakers (45 min):

1. Stéphane Abadie, Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour (France)
2. Fernando Carrilho, IPMA (Portugal)
3. Gerasimos Chouliaras, National Observatory of Athens (Greece).
4. Denys Dutykh, LAMA, Université de Savoia (France)
5. Mauricio González, Universidad de Cantabria (Spain)
6. Aurelio Mercado, UPRM (Puerto Rico)
7. Ocal Necmioglu, Bogazici University (Turkey)
8. Alessio Piatanesi, INGV (Italy)
9. Natalia Rakowsky, Alfred Wegener Institute (Germany)
10. Amos Salamon, Geologycal Survey of Israel (Israel)
11. EDANYA Group, Universidad de Málaga (Spain)

(C) 9 Communications (to be selected, 20 min) and
(D) a poster session

Due to the limited number of attendees, authors willing to participate will have to fill an on-line pre-registration form, previously to conference fee payment.

The pre-registration period will be opened till February 15, 2014.
Deadline for Abstract submission March 10, 2014.
Deadline for Registration and Payment March 20, 2014.

The dissemination activities of the conference will consist in two talks (in Spanish) taking place in a public forum and addressed to a wider public.
