The CERU – European Centre on Urban Risks – is very pleased to welcome you to the 2nd International Conference on Urban Risks (ICUR2020) that will be held in Lisbon on June 25-27, 2020.
ICUR2020 intends to gather practitioners, researchers and other specialists that study or deal with different risks on urban areas, in order to share their experiences and practices, to discuss risks from diverse perspectives and to cope with the latest results of research.
Among the several conference topics, which range from the concepts and methods on risk management to the risk assessment of a variety of urban risks, and also comprising topics dedicated to risk treatment and communication, there will be a session dedicated to the Risk Protection for Cultural Heritage and Historical Centres addressing a wide range of sub-topics related to this field (see the attachment and also https://www.ceru-europa.pt/icur2020/en/submission.htm).
The conference will be bilingual (English and Portuguese), although the use of English will be encouraged due to the selection of the best papers to be published in peer-reviewed international journals as the Journal of Disaster Risk Reduction.
The deadline to submit an extended abstract/short paper is January 31, 2020. Short papers will be published in a proceeding book with ISBN. Additional information can be checked at the Conference website: https://www.ceru-europa.pt/icur2020/en/
