Dear Colleague,

About four months ago, you kindly posted the first announcement for the mentioned Conference on Volcano List.

Could you please post it on VolcanoList?

Thank you very much for your kind consideration on the matter.

*Conference on*

REMOTE SENSING, NATURAL HAZARDS AND

ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE

28 -- 29 July 2011, National University of Singapore, Singapore

*Second Announcement

This conference is organized by the Centre for Remote Imaging, Sensing and Processing (CRISP), National University of Singapore; Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans (LMV), Université Blaise Pascal; and the Working Group for Large Rivers andClimate Change, International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG). It is part of the STIC Asia (sponsored by the French Foreign Office in Southeast Asia) research and exchange programme of Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans involving remote sensing as applied to geological hazard studies between Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines and France.

The conference is designed to initiate informal discussion and paper presentation in two areas that are significant for the Asia Pacific Region and especially Southeast Asia. First of these involves *natural hazards *with emphasis on volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and large floods. The second concerns *environmental changes *including climate change,modification of hydrological and geological processes and urbanization. The application of *remote sensing *in both observing such phenomena and ameliorating their non-beneficial effects will be emphasized. The conference provides a forum for exchange of views among researchers currently working in this area and for designing research strategies for the future.

Three keynotes will be offered by Dr. Simon CARN (Michigan Technological University, USA), Dr. Cees van Westen (ITC, University of Twente, The Netherlands), and Dr. Russel BLONG (Macquarie University, Australia).

*Abstract and Paper Submission*

Authors who wish to present a paper or poster are requested to submit an abstract (approximately 250 to 600 words). The abstract submission deadline is *15 April 2011*.
