Panelist Proposal for the 2015 Annual Workshop

The 40th Annual Natural Hazards Research and Applications Workshop will be held Sunday, July 19 through Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015 at the Omni Interlocken Hotel in Broomfield, Colorado and this year we'll be doing things a little differently.

Instead of submitting session proposals, we're asking that folks who are interested in serving on a panel let us know what they want to talk about. Just fill out this form completely with your contact information and a brief description of what you would contribute as a panelist.

Although we'll be organizing our sessions differently this year, some things will remain the same. As you prepare your submission, keep the following in mind:

  • In most sessions, panelists are not permitted to present slides, video, or papers but instead respond to a moderator's framing questions.
  • We are most interested in emerging questions, new perspectives, and topics of broad interest and applicability.
  • Workshop sessions consist of lively interaction between various members of the hazards community - academics, practitioners, policymakers, and other stakeholders. Consider how your expertise will contribute to a larger conversation about issues surrounding hazards and disasters.

The submission window will close on December 15. If you make a complete submission using the form linked here, we will notify you whether or not it has been accepted by January 31.

Accepted panelists will be expected to attend the Workshop at their own expense or that of their organization. Please do not submit a presentation topic if you do not intend to come to the Workshop.
