Abstract: In response to a perception that hazard and disaster research funding is sporadic in scope and focus, Duane A Gill organized and presided over a Katrina Summit held November 18-19 at Mississippi State University's Social Science Research Center, where Gill is the associate director for research on society and environment and coordinator of the societal risk unit. During the summit social scientists developed a disaster research agenda, including a set of themes and specific funding criteria.
