You’re invited! 7th Annual Hazus User Conference—From FEMA

Dear Hazus Community,

What is Hazus?

Hazus is a nationally applicable standardized methodology that contains models for estimating potential losses from earthquakes, floods, and hurricanes and was developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS). Hazus uses Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology to estimate physical, economic, and social impacts of disasters. For more information about Hazus, visite .


What is the Hazus User Conference?

Hazus continues to grow both in terms of its capabilities as well as increasing national and international interest. The Conference provides an opportunity for users to meet, collaborate and share information regarding new and innovative applications of the Hazus-MH technology and resources. As the only Hazus Conference, this event will showcase the latest advances in research and practice.

How can I present at the Conference?

Participants are encouraged to submit presentation abstracts on innovative Hazus-related applications such as, but not limited to, the use of Hazus in flood, earthquake, or hurricane studies, international applications of Hazus, academic uses, or enhancements of Hazus hazard and exposure input.
