Please submit an abstract with tropical cyclone risk as the underlying theme. Abstracts that focus on tropical cyclone risk, including hazard and/or impact, will be considered first for acceptance.


This Symposium differs from a traditional conference in that there is greater time allocated for each speaker to present and have Q and A in order to obtain greater depth to the discussion and there is a greater emphasis on networking to bring participants together for future collaborations. Participants interact together during the course of the symposium in one meeting room and have further discussions over daily organized group lunches and welcome and farewell dinners.


We are inviting additional sponsorships at this time.  We are pleased to announce Risk Management Solutions (RMS), the American Association of Geographers, the University of South Florida (USF), and the School of Geosciences (USF) are already official sponsors of our Symposium. If you are interested in sponsoring the symposium, please contact Jennifer Collins (


Some papers presented at the previous Summit can be found in the recently published book Hurricane Risk, Jennifer Collins and Kevin Walsh (eds).
