- 2012 Fall Meeting highlights
The verdict and prison sentences, delivered on 22 October 2012, that found six Italian scientists and one government official guilty of manslaughter in connection with the 2009 L'Aquila earthquake shocked the scientific community worldwide. A late-breaking special session co-convened by John Bates, at the National Climatic Data Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and Stephen Sparks, University of Bristol, was added to the Fall Meeting schedule to address this case and to discuss the complex process of assessing and communicating the risks associated with natural hazards.
