The Regional Laboratory of Civil Engineering – LREC, announces the International Workshop on NATURAL HAZARDS – NatHaz19 under the theme “Hydrological Risks” to be held in Lajes do Pico village, in Pico Island (Azores), on May 9-10, 2019.
The Workshop will include one day with technical sessions for oral presentations and a keynote lecture by an international specialist on Natural Hazards, and a second day with a technical visit. For all the attendants, it will also be possible to take part in several touristic tours after the Workshop. The selected proceedings will be published by the publisher Springer in the series “Advances in Science, Technology & Innovation” and the best selected works can be submitted (until late 2019), in expanded version, to the international journal “Springer Nature Applied Sciences”. The submission of abstracts are open until middle of February 2019.
This Workshop will o er a good opportunity for a forum on several issues related with natural hazards, particularly about hydrological risks and hazards, in this second edition. We warmly invite all professionals and researchers, including engineering geologists, geotechnics, hydrologists, environmental scientists and engineers, to participate in the event.
Due to its tectonic and volcanic environment, the Azores region is affected by most of all-natural hazards in a climate change framework, namely, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, floods, coastal erosion, etc. So, it is the perfect place where professionals in those areas can discuss those problems. It will also be a great opportunity to closely contact the local reality, in what concerns the natural risks that can affect that island and to visit several peculiar geological/volcanological aspects.
It will also provide an excellent occasion to enjoy the beautiful landscape of Pico Island. The beauty given by the volcanic nature of Azores islands, its geographical, cultural and gastronomical speci cities and the hospitality of the Azorean people, may also be a good justi cation for combining the technical and scienti c interest with the touristic aspects and take advantage of this excellent opportunity to visit the Azores, particularly the so-called “Triangle” (Pico Island and its nearest islands, Faial and S. Jorge).
