To the Englisch version of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Reduction

The call for proposals is to develop a scalable, reliable, innovative and cost-effective early warning system prototype that can be used to predict and monitor diseases. The aim is to prevent outbreaks of epidemics and mitigate their impact at local, regional and global level.

Call name: EIC Horizon Prize for 'Early Warning for Epidemics' 

Call ID: H2020-Epidemics-EICPrize-2020

The deadline for submissions is 1 September 2020.

To the call for tender

The 'water' journal is planning a special issue of the MDPI WATER on Recent Advances in Flood Hazard and Risk Science. Therefore, its opening a call for papers to adapt and develop new methods and techniques to properly face the challenges of a new era, where capabilities for monitoring and modelling Earth processes have dramatically increased.

Scientific contributions should include (but not restricted to): theoretical and applied developments of hydrologic and hydrodynamic modelling including morphodynamics; post-event surveys; floods and related processes monitoring; flood frequency analysis; data mining and machine learning tools for hazard, exposure and vulnerability analysis; social networks and big data analysis for risk analysis and model calibration; palaeohydrology and geochronological dating techniques; geographical information systems; risk perception, risk communication, and dissemination.

You may send your manuscript now or up until the deadline (30.09.2021), submissions will be published immediately after acceptance in an ongoing basis. Water is fully open access (unlimited and free access by readers).

Macquarie University invites applications for a position in the rivers research group at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia led by Professor Kirstie Fryirs. The river recovery research project is fully funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage program and successful applicants will work in collaboration with the industry partners Landcare Australia and NSW Local Land Services (Hunter).

Foundation science is needed to understand the geomorphic and vegetative processes by which river recovery occurs, its impact on flood flow hydrology for natural flood management, trial new on-ground rehabilitation and vegetation management techniques (including the use of hazard reduction burns). It will investigate where corridors of recovery are in NSW, where to prioritise rehabilitation and the cost:benefit of working with recovery in river management practice.

This position will focus on the effect recovery is having on flood flow hydrology for natural flood management as well as river management options available to work with river recovery. Applicants also will work on flow hydrology, flood risk and natural flood management.

Application closing date: 30.09.2020
