CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Extreme Value Analysis and Application to Natural Hazards (EVAN), 17-19 September , Chatou (near Paris), France

The conference will take place from Tuesday 17 to Thursday 19 September 2019 at the EDF R&D CAMPUS site (also called EDF Lab Chatou) in Chatou (Paris area), France. The overall aim of the conference is to provide a forum for the exchange of experiences and ideas on the Extreme Value Analysis of Natural Hazards. Studies of extremes' 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 that, 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.

The deadline for submission is extended to Wednesday 24th April 2019 and you will be notified of whether your abstract has been successful by the end of May 2019.

Abstracts should be submitted to:

Invited speakers are:

  • Dr. Emmanuel Garnier, Professor of Climate history at the Université de Caen and researcher at the CNRS (France),
  • Dr. Taha Ouarda, Professor of statistical hydrometeorology at the INRS (Canada),
  • Prof. Dario Camuffo, Professor of physics and member of the National Research Council (Italy).
