The 61st ESReDA Seminar on
Technological disruptions triggered by natural events:
identification, characterization, and management
Announcement and Call for papers
Scope of the seminar
Climate change and the delays in adopting the necessary measures to manage it is in-creasing the number of disrupting events triggered by natural events. Sudden failures or gradual deterioration of system components due to natural events can bring to malfunc-tions, loss of containment and disruptions, whole likelihood is going to increase in the next future.
In recent years several methodologies and techniques have been proposed, able to take into account explicitly and in realistic way NaTech events, able to support the decision making in terms of prevention, protection, adaptation and management.
NaTech events have also another dimension to be considered, that is the territorial one, again in terms of prevention, management, and resilience.
The aim of the seminar is thus to discuss the state of the art and on-going developments in the NaTech risk assessment techniques and methodologies and to discuss their strength, weakness, and uncertainties in the assessment of the safety and resilience of complex systems.
The 61st ESReDA seminar will be held on September 22‐23, 2021, hosted by Politecnico di Torino, Italy
