Humans experience a wide array of disasters that generally fall into two categories: natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, etc.; and unnatural, or man-made, disasters such as wars, explosions, wildfires, chemical spills, etc. Such disasters wreak havoc and provoke extensive and large-scale devastation, and carry extremely serious financial repercussions for nations, organizations, and individuals.

The study of dynamics of disasters is an important and worthwhile endeavour, with huge benefits for everyone. Join us on the beautiful island of Milos, Greece on June 12 to 16, 2022 2023, where experts share the latest findings on natural and unnatural disasters. We extend an invitation for those studying topics related to disasters to submit an abstract and paper and everyone to register to attend this fascinating and must-see conference.
