In the five years since the 2004 tsunami, there have been considerable advances in tsunami modelling, especially in the Indian Ocean region. It is timely to hold an Indian Ocean tsunami modelling symposium so that the tsunami modelling community can come together to share acquired knowledge and discuss developments in the field. The symposium will be held under the auspices of the Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System (ICG/IOTWS).

The themes of the Symposium are:

• Modelling of tsunamis in the Indian Ocean
• The Indian Ocean Tsunami of 2004
• Operational forecasting and warnings
• Advances in tsunami modelling techniques
• Tsunami observations
• Inundation modelling
• Tsunami generation
• Data preparation, management and distribution
• Tsunami hazard assessment
• Data management
• Meteo-tsunamis

Contributions on other relevant topics including those from other ocean basins will also be considered

This conference series emphasizes informal exchanges in a collegial environment. All sessions will be plenary and attendance is limited to about a sixty participants.
