The call for abstracts has now closed. We may, however, be able to accept poster presentations – please get in touch.


Abstract submission has now opened and closes Friday 28th April 2017. All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Board and authors will be informed about the outcome via email by the end of May, 2017.


The conference will provide a forum for the exchange of experiences and ideas on the extreme value analysis of Natural Hazards. Studies of extremes of geophysical variables (e.g temperature, rainfall, flows, sea level, winds, surface ocean waves, snow) and works related to natural hazards (e.g. floods, windstorms, heat waves, droughts, landslides) are welcome. Please note although the focus is on extreme value analysis, contributions that do not include this, but involve other aspects of natural hazards analysis are still welcome.

Presentations including but not limited to the following topics are kindly invited:

  • Description of probabilistic models that are useful in extreme value problems and applications.
  • Non-stationary extreme value analyses.
  • Multivariate extreme value statistics.
  • Spatial/regional analysis of extreme values.
  • Extreme value analysis from a climate perspective.
  • Uncertainties in extreme value analyses.
  • Risk analysis and adaptation.
  • Resilience and sustainability.


The submitted abstracts should be in word and must not exceed one page and include: Title, Author(s), Affiliation(s) of author(s), and the Abstract Text. They may also include a figure but no references. Download a word template here: EVAN2017_Abstract_Template. Please follow the template exactly and return as a word document.

Email your abstract (as a word document) to EVAN 2017. Please confirm in the email whether you would prefer a oral or poster presentation. Note, we have a limited number of oral slots. You will receive a email reply confirming your submission.
