    ICONHIC 2016 -1st International Conference on Natural Hazards and Infrastructure: Protection, Design, Rehabilitation

    Chania, Crete Island, Greece

    With this new Conference we aim to bring under one roof specialists from the academia and industry on earthquake engineering, landslides, floods, tsunamis and hurricanes as we have witnessed several times in recent years, our civil infrastructure is exposed to one or several of these threats and it is us, engineers, who mainly undertake the task of designing against them to minimize the risk and reduce fatalities.

    This conference gives us all the opportunity to not only state our case in our own specialty but also to watch and listen how our “scientific neighbors” are coping with in their fields of expertise; this is the essence of cross-fertilization of knowledge. To achieve this goal, our conference will include excellent keynote lectures, special and theme sessions as well as 5-in-5 presentations in what we hope to be a most lively event encouraging discussion on challenging topics.
