Proceedings of the International Conference on Vulnerability and Risk Analysis and Management (ICVRAM 2011) and the International Symposium on Uncertainty Modeling and Analysis (ISUMA 2011), held in Hyattsville, Maryland, April 11-13, 2011. Sponsored by the Council on Disaster Risk Management of ASCE.
This collection contains 119 peer-reviewed papers that build upon recent significant advances in the modeling, analysis, and management of risk, vulnerability, and uncertainty. Yet, even as advancements are made in technology, new hazards appear. These papers demonstrate the transformation of intellectual discussions into robust frameworks for handling emerging vulnerabilities and risks and providing analytical bases to prepare for national and international disasters.
These papers will be valuable to experts, decision-makers, and others involved in assessing, planning responses to, and managing vulnerability and risk.
