       Advances in Extreme Value Analysis and application to Natural Hazard


 17-19 september 2019

  (Paris - EDF Lab CHATOU)

Following the success of the first international conference on Advances in Extreme Value Analysis and application to Natural Hazard (EVAN) in Siegen Germany in 2013, then the second conference in Santander Spain in 2015, and in Southampton UK in 2017, we are pleased to announce the dates of the fourth conference to take place in EDF R&D CAMPUS site (also called EDF Lab Chatou near Paris, France).

The conference will take place from Tuesday 17th to Thursday 19th September 2019 in Paris. The overall aim of the conference is to bring together and promote interchange between a diverse community of research scientists, students, practitioners and stakeholders concerned with this complex and inter-disciplinary topic.

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, marine submersion, windstorms, heat waves, droughts, landslides, thunderstorm, erosion, earthquake and tsunami) 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.

We are pleased to inform you that the following Special Issue in the journal Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences (NHESS)  (ISSN 1561-8633, IF 5-year: 2.693) is organized as part of EVAN 2019 and it is opened from the 1st June 2019 for submissions ( We invite you to contribute a full research paper or review article for peer-review and publication. We believe that you would make an excellent contribution, based on your recently submitted abstract.
