On February 20, 2018, the Institute for Problems of Precise Mechanics and Control of the Russian Academy of Sciences hosted an online International workshop on International scientific cooperation in disaster mitigation and managment. The Center for Disaster Mitigation and Management was opened in January 2006. The Center aims to use and build best practices in key areas such as disaster mitigation and earthquake management, early warning systems. The center has experience in monitoring earthquakes, landslides, cyclones and floods, droughts, using construction equipment, geomatics technology (remote sensing, GIS, GPS, geodesy, digital photogrammetry, etc.). On the workshop, scientists of IPTMU RAS and the Center, well known in the field of systemic problems of managing critical situations, taken part with reports.
Seminar organizers: Dr.G.P.Ganapathy (Center for Disaster Mitigation and Management, Director) and Dr.Sc. M.A. Barulina (IPTMU RAS, leading researcher)
