INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE COMMEMORATING THE 250 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE 1755 LISBON EARTHQUAKE - November 1-4, 2005, Lisbon, Portugal - Deadline for Abstracts - 20 May 2005. (Completed).
The 1755 earthquake was influential not only in Portugal but in all European and North African countries, where its devastating effects were felt. The entire world was deeply impressed and the discussion of its causes generated a large amount of scientific and metaphysical speculation. It inspired philosophers, poets and writers. The socio-economic consequences of the event were great and affected the future organization and development of Portugal. The eventuality of a similar occurrence urges society and the scientific community to reflect on its lessons. 250 years after the 1755 earthquake, the opportunity to put together scientists, engineers, historians, philosophers, urban planners, architects, economists, policy makers, can foster an integrated view on our global perception of natural disasters and how society must deal with them.
