Seismic hazard, risk, and strong ground motion is one of the topics discussed during the 23rd General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) in Saporo in 2003. Before the Assembly, some 150 abstracts were submitted to SS04 session (Seismic hazard, risk, and strong ground motion). After the exchange with SW04 (Earthquakes and Megacities) as well as other sessions, 100 poster presentations and 61 oral presentations were arranged within the SS04 framework. Totally 32 submissions have been received, with 27 papers accepted after the review. The proceedings reflect the state of the art in the field of seismic hazard, rick, and strong ground motion. 1.Seismic Hazard: Probabilistic and Empirical Approaches2.Seismic Hazard: Tectonics and Stress3.Ground Motion Evaluation and Prediction: Empirical Approach4.Ground Motion Evaluation and Prediction: Deterministic Seismic Zonation5.Towards Reduction of Earthquake Disaster
