It is the aim of this conference to provide an international forum to regularly bring together leading researchers in these fields along with leading practitioners in order to meet the following main objectives:
• Disseminate state-of-the-art knowledge and practice for dealing with both of these hazards either individually or collectively
• Provide a forum where students, researchers and practitioners in these fields may interact, network and learn from each other and promote best practice
• Researchers are afforded the opportunity of obtaining useful feedback on their research from their peers as well as from a strong contingent of leading practitioners in the field. Likewise industry participants will get the chance to inform researchers with the issues of greatest concern to them
• Over the long term it is expected that this conference will contribute in leading to a safer and more resilient built environment as well as enhanced safety in industrial environments, both on and off-shore.
