Workshop on Mitigating Flood Susceptibility and Risk

Monday 13 March 2023
9:30 - 4:30 GMT
Glasgow Grosvenor Hotel (Kibble Suite) 1-9 Grosvenor Terrace (Kibble Suite) Glasgow G12 0TB

A workshop on flooding from government partners, research institutions and the University of Glasgow.

Flash flood is a type of catastrophic natural hazard that can cause severe damages to both human society and the physical environment. In recent years, the emergence of big data collected by various sensors monitoring weather, rainfall and water levels offers new opportunities of data-driven knowledge discovery in relation to floods. Meanwhile, Artificial intelligence (AI) has been increasingly applied in the evaluation and prediction of flood susceptibility and risk. This workshop attempts to communicate and share the knowledge and experience in flood susceptibility/risk modelling and estimation among researchers and practitioners, and to communicate the available resources (data, expertise, projects) among the workshop participants. The invited speakers are from University of Glasgow, Glasgow City Council, Scottish Water, Scottish Environment Protection Agency and the James Hutton Institute.

Organisers: University of Glasgow (Urban Big Data Centre, School of Interdisciplinary Studies, School of Geographical and Earth Sciences)

*Lunch and coffee are provided.
