The workshop invites two levels of contribution

Application for Contributors

Individuals who will provide the primary content for the workshop activities and recommendations to NSF and JST and will be invited to deliver plenary lectures and panels and work in small groups to advance collaborations between the US and Japan.



Individuals who will form the general audience that views/attends plenary lectures, panels and workshop discussions.




Since this workshop will inform next directions in US-Japan collaborations around the workshop theme, workshop contributors will be selected based on the quality of their application and need to balance relevant disciplines and US-Japanese representation. Applications will include a response (no more than 250 words) to each of the workshop’s three research questions:


  1. How can the human dimensions of disaster impacts be more accurately captured and represented in the analysis, modeling and simulation of disasters?

  2. What type of data and supporting research infrastructure would be necessary to enable novel, transdisciplinary approaches to answering these and other human-centered disaster questions?

  3. In what ways can US-Japan collaborations advance these questions in new and important ways? 


The three responses will be packaged as Position Papers posted on the workshop website and used to identify organizing themes and groupings of contributors for real-time discussions during the workshop. These Position Papers will also inform which colleagues are invited to offer the workshop’s Lightning Talks and Rapid Panels.


Interested contributors should submit an application via Submittable by 23 September 2022, which includes responses to each of the above questions (no more than 250 words each).


Registration for Participants


The workshop also invites Participants, those who wish to form the general audience that can view plenary activities and report-out discussion sessions. Participants will be asked to complete a basic registration, without supplying responses for a Position Paper.

Participants will have access to the Position Papers and will be offered a chance to contact Contributors and share their insights via the Forum of this website.

Interested participants should register via Submittable by 1 October 2022.


Contributor Selection Criteria

The invitee list will balance the distribution of Japanese and US scholars as well as disciplines, for a representative sampling of researchers working in hazard natural sciences/engineering and social sciences. Particular emphasis will be placed on accepting scholars who have worked at the interface of these fields and/or the data sciences. The co-chairs will strive to balance both early career and more established researchers to ensure voice across career stages. Based on the proposed virtual format, the workshop is proposed to invite 40 Contributors (20 from the US and 20 from Japan). 


Submittable Instructions

Submittable is a software used to build customized online submission and application forms, as well as to review submissions and communicate with submitters.


Submittable requires all applicants to register an account before filling the application form.

Please find guidelines for Submittable registration here and here.


The application window closes on the 23th of September at 8:00 PM (EST).
