The Fifteenth International Tsunami Symposium was held during the XX General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) in Vienna, Austria, on August 19 and 20, 1991. The Symposium was sponsored jointly by the IUGG Tsunami Commission, International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth’s Interiors, and the International Association for Physical Sciences of the Ocean. The coconvenors of the Symposium were E. Bernard (United States), M. El Sabh (Canada), N. Shuto (Japan), and S. Tinti (Italy). Thirty-nine presentations on tsunami research were made by scientists from 13 countries during the 2-day Symposium on Tsunami Disaster Reduction. The sessions were organized into Observations, Physical Processes (i.e., generation, propagation, run-up), and Hazard Reduction.
