Description: Brings together engineering and the physical, social, and behavioral sciences within the environment of regulations and policy to provide a forum for cutting-edge, holistic, and cross disciplinary approaches to natural hazards loss and cost reduction. Topics are diverse and include the characterization of hazard forces and the planning, design, construction, maintenance, performance, and use of structures in the physical environment. Social/behavioral sciences topics address issues related to hazard mitigation and human response plus significant issues about the built environment, l and use, building standards, and the role of financial markets and insurance. 

Intended Readership: Civil engineers concerned with the impact and management of natural hazards, along  with their professional and research colleagues working in pertinent behavioral, physical, and social sciences.
