Scope of this mini-symposium is to discuss developments and directions for large scale hazard and disaster simulation related earthquakes and tsunamis using high performance computing technology for "high quality computing", which aims for a better quality management of engineering simulations. Broadband aspects from earthquake engineering to seismology are expected with a special emphasis on use of super computers, for example, structural response, soil amplification, city and social response, evacuation, recovery, fluid-structure coupling, global tsunami propagation, local tsunami run-up, earthquake ground motion, crustal deformation, earthquake cycle and the other related issues in earthquake, tsunami, and other geo-hazards.
