2017 Frontiers in Resilience Symposium

Sandia National Laboratories, in partnership with the George Mason University Center for Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security, invites you to attend the 2017 Frontiers in Resilience Symposium: Developing Innovative Resilience Solutions at the Interface of Science, Economics, and Policy on May 10 – 11, 2017. The two day event will be hosted at George Mason University’s Arlington Campus, located at 3351 North Fairfax Drive, Arlington, VA 22201, in Founders’ Hall.

The Symposium will bring together thought leaders, practitioners, and researchers to give multi-disciplinary, solution-based talks that explore the critical intersection of engineering, policy, and economics as the foundation of resilience and foster conversations and collaboration toward identifying resilience solutions for our most complex and challenging national security concerns.

This event offers the security and resilience community a unique opportunity to engage in rich dialogue on the issues we approach from different perspectives. It will offer a new audience for their research and analysis and an opportunity to inspire future research, launch collaborative relationships, and incite action to work toward a more resilient nation.

Frontiers in Resilience will feature subject matter expert panels and multidisciplinary, cross-cutting discussions based on paper and panel submissions. Areas of focus will include:

  • Resilience as it relates to science, economics, and policy
  • Resilience case studies that include aspects of science, economics, and policy
  • Grid resilience
  • Urban resilience
  • Incentivizing resilience
  • Human behavior and how it contributes/constrains resilience
  • Cybersecurity

We seek presentations which explore innovative approaches to resilience in the areas of science, technology, business, economics, and public policy. These presentations should feature original theoretical, methodological, and empirical research as well as relevant applied or policy research. We also welcome methods papers in areas such as risk communication or social network analysis. For consideration for the paper presentation track, please submit a 250-300 word abstract and a CV by March 17, 2017. Notification of selection will be completed by April 3.

Please submit all proposals to Christie Jones, Education Program Manager with the Center for Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security, at mailto:cjones62@gmu.edu

Registration for the Symposium event is now open and available until May 1 at – https://2017frontiersinresilience.eventbrite.com
