35th Annual “Natural Hazards Workshop” Begins; Follow Through Twitter Feed (@HazWS), Tag (#Haz)

July 11th, 2010 · No Comments

The 35th Annual Natural Hazards Research and Applications Workshop began this weekend. The conference, organized by the University of Colorado’s esteemed Natural Hazards Center, is held outside of Denver. According to the Center’s website, the Workshop is:

designed to bring hazards researchers and practitioners from many disciplines together for face-to-face discussions on issues and trends that affect how society deals with hazards and disasters.

The schedule (here) is chock full of interesting panels and speeches, including a keynote from the New York Times’s Andrew Revkin.

I had the pleasure of attending last year’s Workshop and wish I could be there this week. However, I am not yet recovered enough to do so. As a result, I am following the proceedings through the event’s Twitter feed, @HazWS, and the Twitter tag #Haz which are providing coverage. I also recommend that anyone interested in these issues should follow the Center’s normal feed, @HazCenter.
