Purpose of INTERPRAEVENT2014
In the whole Pacific Rim, sediment-related disasters are occurring frequently caused by heavy rains and typhoons influenced by the climate change, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions etc. In recent years, they are becoming more catastrophic in terms of magnitude, intensity and frequency. We now have to accelerate study for disaster risk reduction for the future and, more importantly, the results should be shared widely around the world by engineers, researchers, administrators, educators and many others who are engaged in sediment-related disaster reduction. 
     In these circumstances, INTERPRAEVENT 2014 will be held in November 2014 in Nara Prefecture, Japan which was seriously affected by large-scale sediment-related disasters caused by Typhoon Talas in September 2011.

The main topic of the symposium “Natural Disaster Mitigation to Establish Society with the Resilience” is divided into six categories (see below).

I. Field Observation, Analysis and Modeling of Natural Disasters
  Geological, Geomorphological or Hydrological Settings
  Characteristics of Processes and Behaviors 
  Remote Sensing, GPS and GIS Techniques for Mapping and Modeling etc.

II. Catastrophic Disaster
  Triggering Mechanisms
  Preparation and Urgent Measures to Catastrophic Disasters etc. 

III. Risk/Crisis Management and Non-Structural Measures
  Advanced Monitoring Technologies and Warning Systems
  Methods and Procedures for Risk Management
  Hazard Zoning and Mapping
  Education and Local Action Aiming at Disaster Mitigation etc.

IV. Structural Measures and Effects
  Efficient Design Method and Implementation Plan 
  Method of Construction in Consideration of Influence on Environment and Ecosystem
  Maintenance of Facilities
  Secondary Use of Facilities etc.

V. Recovery Activities
  Continuous Monitoring of Damages
  Recovery of Infrastructures
  Socio-economic Aspects  etc.

VI. Sustainable Land Use Management 
  Actual State of Land Use in Hillslope Areas
  Advanced Planning Methods for Sustainable Land Use
  Management Methods for Sustainable Land Use
  Law Aiming at Disaster Mitigation etc.
