General information

The 17th Plinius Conference on Mediterranean Risks will take place from Tuesday 13 October 2020 to Friday 16 October 2020 near Frascati, Roma, Italy, at the Villa Mondragone Congress and Event Center (Via Frascati, 51 00040, Monte Porzio Catone, RM).

The objective of the 2020 edition is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for discussions on our current state of knowledge of Mediterranean risks in a climate change context. Different aspects related to monitoring, assessment, diagnosis, prediction, and definition of weather extremes and hydro-geological effects, impacts on natural resources, agriculture, health and society, as well as adaptation capacity and preservation strategies for natural and cultural heritage at risk, will be addressed with a multi-sectorial approach. This will be achieved by bringing together scientific experts in the fields of meteorology, hydrology, geomorphology, sociology, engineering, cultural heritage conservation, and also governmental or private risk management actors.

The active participation of early career scientists will be encouraged via reduced participation fees and awards for best oral and poster presentations.
