Session Details

Master Class on Disaster Mitigation


ObjectivesFederating resources to alleviate the natural disasters impacts and collaborating with broader communities in Asia supported by APAN framework is the long-term goal of APAN Disaster Mitigation Working Group (DMWG). Taking advantage of the APAN46 hosted in New Zealand, it is a great opportunity for us to outreach to the disaster mitigation communities in New Zealand, Australia and nearby countries. The APAN Meeting brings together infrastructure and technical providers and user communities through the Disaster Mitigation Working Group activities. DMWG coordinates experts of various disciplines from around the world to share their knowledge and experiences in the form of a Master Class. A one and a half days Master Class on Disaster Mitigation is arranged by APAN DMWG and New Zealand institutes. Lectures on case studies, trends, innovative methods and workflow and practices using numerical simulations are the focus of the Master Class. Examples of using the simulation portals of tsunami and weather simulation will be presented as well. One or two sessions will center on the progress and discussions of the open collaborations for regional disaster mitigation extended from the Deeper Understanding of Natural Disasters project (UND, Asi@Connect funded project).
