S-HELP event at the METSZ international workshop

Two S-HELP events took place at the International Workshop «Mega Earthquakes and Tsunamis in Subduction Zones - Forecasting Approaches and Implications for Hazard Assessment (METSZ)» held at the Rhodes Island, Greece, 6-8 October, 2014.

1) Special Session: Pre- and Post-Disaster Resilience and Risk Mitigation Actions
This special session consisted of eleven presentations including four presentations specifically on S-HELP. Project members presented an overview on the S-HELP project, as well as particular aspects which are the end user perspective, spatial information management, and the psychological framework. The session was co-organised by the European Japan Expert Association (EJEA, ), the Japanese-German Center Berlin (JDZB, ), and the S-HELP project and chaired by Dietrich Albert (TUGraz, EJEA, S-HELP), Wolfgang Bren (JDZB, EJEA), and Karen Neville (UCC, S-HELP). More information on this special session and abstracts of the presentations can be found in the Abstract Book (pages 16, 42, 50, 52, 61).

2) Special Workshop: Validating End User Requirements for a Decision Support Tool (DST) for Health Emergency Management
The goal of this special workshop was to acquire feedback on and validate a series of requirements for the DST. These requirements have been identified as part of ongoing research and stakeholder consultation carried out by the S-HELP consortium partners. A selection of requirements for various elements of the DST were presented to approximately 30 participants who then gave written feedback on them. This workshop was organised by the S-HELP project (under the lead of FAC). More information on the special workshop can be found in the Abstract Book (page 41).
