An advanced e-Infrastructure is the most viable way to integrate current solutions, and engage more experts, knowledge and technology for continuously improved services for risk management and hazard mitigation. The EUAsiaGrid Workshop on Natural Disaster Mitigation aims to facilitate a grid-based e-Science Infrastructure for hazards mitigation with the collaboration with domain experts.
During this workshop, earthquake and climate change will be the two main topics. Use cases of Grid applications will be demonstrated. In addition, sharing mechanism of local data, content standards for hazards mitigation information system, analysis tools and simulation models will also be discussed. The workshop allows us the opportunities to exchange new ideas about grid-based simulation tools and new collaboration model.
