INTERPRAEVENT 2023 International Symposium
April 17-18 2023 Taichung, Taiwan
Natural Disasters Occurrence, Reduction, and Restoration in Mountain Regions
Under the impacts of global warming and climate change, the complex geological environments, climate conditions, and continued change of land use/land cover in mountain regions have made it more challenging to predict mountainous hazards and their impacts on communities. The main topic of the symposium “Natural Disasters Occurrence, Reduction, and Restoration in Mountain Regions” is focused on natural hazards from the aspects of field investigation, occurrence monitoring, mitigation strategy, risks analysis, engineering governance, resilient community, and ecological restoration. As a prestigious event, the symposium provides an international platform and great opportunity for the experts and scholars in all relative fields to share the precious ideas, experiences, and research. Your participance is the most welcome for the success of the great event!


The symposium has teamed up with WATER Special Issue (SI) on “Natural Disasters Occurrence, Reduction, and Restoration in Mountain Regions.” Oral presenters, except invited lectures, are required to first submit their manuscript to the WATER SI. Once accepted, the manuscript will form part of the INTERPRAEVENT Proceedings. Authors registered for the INTERPRAEVENT 2023 International Symposium, will be eligible to a 20% discount for publication in the WATER SI.
