Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), in partnership with the Center for Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security (CIP/HS), 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.
Bringing together thought leaders, practitioners, and researchers, the Symposium will offer multi-disciplinary, solution-based talks that explore the critical intersection of engineering, policy, and economics as the foundation of resilience. The event will provide space for conversations and collaborations aimed at identifying resilience solutions for our most complex and challenging national security concerns.
The 2017 Frontiers in Resilience Symposium 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
Human behavior and how it contributes/constrains resilience
The symposium will explore innovative approaches to resilience in the areas of science, technology, business, economics, and public policy with presentations focused on original theoretical, methodological, and empirical research as well as relevant applied or policy research. It promises a unique opportunity to engage in rich dialogue on current issues and inspiration for future research, partnerships and action within the resilience stakeholder community.
