The event is titled “4th International Workshop on Multimodal Sediment Disaster – Disaster Risk Mitigation through Partnership-based Knowledge Sharing”. As the main theme, this topic contains the aim at recalling the hydraulicians, especially those from countries where disaster becoming the high  concern during the last decade. These include various disasters such as flash flood, debris flow (due to active volcanoes, collapses, as well as glaciers), landslides, earthquakes, etc. It anticipated that through this workshop, further cooperation on disaster mitigation countermeasures among the country participants could be developed, so that sustainable development of disaster risk reduction in the participating countries remains continue. Focus of the workshop would not only limited to engineering viewpoints (such as mathematical modeling, numerical simulation technique, etc), but also those non-engineering approach (such as community-based, most adaptive technology, socio-environment, etc.). Participants are welcome and encouraged to adopt additional topics as sub themes which are considered relevant to the main theme.

Possible relevant sub-themes are;

  • Multimodal Sediment Disasters
  • Sediment Management at Volcanic and/or Non-volcanic Area
  • Towards developing advanced GIS for Disaster Risk Reduction
  • Sediment Transport Hydraulics
  • Sediment Resources Management
  • Water Resources Engineering and Management
  • Landslides Disaster Mitigation System
  • Development of Monitoring, Forecasting, and Warning System
  • Flood Management and Risk Analysis
  • Coastal and Estuarine Disaster Management
  • Community-based and Socio-Culture Approach on Disaster Risk Reduction
