Event Date/Time: Sep 15, 2005
This event is designed to give an overview of developments in areas of technology that relate to Disaster Prediction, Detection & Recovery. The detection and prevention of natural and man made disasters has in recent years taken on more global significance. Events such as 9/11, Madrid and the Tsunami disaster have shown the need to have a structure of not just detection tools, but recovery and redeployment options in place. The need for areas such as modelling, sensor, communication systems, network infrastructure and disaster recovery have become of paramount importance to global and regional governments and business alike.
