17th - 19th September 2019, Paris

Abstracts submission deadline: 20th March 2019

The next edition of the conference EVAN 2019 will provide a forum for the exchange of experiences and ideas on the extreme value analysis of Natural Hazards. Studies of extremes of geophysical variables (e.g. temperature, rainfall, flows, sea level, winds, surface ocean waves, snow) and works related to natural hazards (e.g. floods, marine submersion, windstorms, heat waves, droughts, landslides, thunderstorm, erosion, earthquake and tsunami) are welcome. Please note although the focus is on extreme value analysis, contributions that do not include this, but involve other aspects of natural hazards analysis are still welcome.

Presentations including but not limited to the following topics are kindly invited:

  • Univariates and multivariate extreme value analyses.
  • Extreme analysis based on historical or paleological data.
  • Extreme data collection and data quality.
  • Non-stationary extreme value analyses.
  • Spatial/regional analysis of extreme values.
  • Probabilistic and possibilistic approaches for hazards assessment.
  • Uncertainties in extreme value analyses.
  • Extreme value analysis in a variable climate.
  • Risk analysis and adaptation.
