Rose convenes IDRiM ninth annual conference
As its President, Price School faculty member Adam Rose, convened the Ninth Annual Conference of the International Society for Integrated Disaster Risk Management (IDRiM), October 2 to 4. The Conference was held in Sydney, Australia, and was hosted by Data61, the digital research network arm of Australia’s National Science Agency, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).
The theme of the Conference was Data-Driven Approaches to Integrated Disaster Risk Management. It attracted participants from 14 countries, including both researchers and practitioners.
