International Network of Disaster Studies organises conference in Japan

From July 17-19 the International Network of Disaster Studies will have its second conference. The theme will be Landscape-Scale Disasters, Emergency Response, and Regional Recovery. Iwate University, has generously committed to host this conference from July 17-19, 2018, in its home city of Morioka, Japan. Morioka is located about two hours north of Tokyo by high-speed train connection.

The International Network of Disaster Studies is not a formal organization but simply a loose association of university faculty and other senior researchers who get together to exchange ideas and discuss issues of mutual interest. At the initial conference in Haikou, China, in January 2017, participants came from more than a dozen countries.

During the conference, there will be multiple topical panels with papers, presentations, and discussion, as well as ample opportunity for informal dialogue among participants outside of the formal program.
