May 26 - 30, 2019 - ICASP13
The 13th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering (ICASP13) was taken place in Seoul, South Korea. There were 394 registered delegates from 36 countries registered in this conference. Two members of the PRAISys team, Dr. Paolo Bocchini and his student Mr. Liyang Ma, attended the ICASP13 to present their recent work on probablistic modeling for the infrastructure resilience assessment. Their presentations focused on the restoration decision modeling and the resilience assessment of the power system, respectively. Both were well recieved, followed with heated discussion. At this conference, Liyang won the CERRA Student Award for applications of probability in civil engineering, for his research on the resilience assessment of power transmission systems, as part of the PRAISys project.
May 17, 2018 - The Workshop of Interdependent Infrastructure Incident
We have successfully held theWorkshop of Interdependent Infrastructure Incident (I3) at West Palm Beach, FL, with more than 20 local municipal experts of emegency management participated. This workshop featured the tabletop exercises, which collected expert opinions on their emergency response and decision-making under a hypothetic hurricane scenario. The tabletop exercises included two major components: pre-landfall phase and post-landfall phase. At the end of each phase, there were heated gruop discussions among all experts, sharing their experience in the emergency management.
September 22, 2017 - The Second Seminar on Infrastructure Resilience
We successfully held the 2nd seminar on Infrastructure Resilience at Lehigh University, with more than 40 audiences. The seminar lasted for four hours, consisting of two sesions. The first session focused on simplified methods for resilience assessment to improve effectiveness on regional planning and risk mitigation. The second session presented quantitative methods with applications in different engineering disciplines to conduct resilience assessment and improve engineering design.
June 13-28, 2017 - STAR Academy
Three seminars on infrastructure resilience were held in the 2017 summer camp of STAR Academy at Lehigh University on June 13th, 21st, and 28th, 2017.
October 28, 2016 - Infrastructure resilience seminar for professional engineers
A four-hour seminar on infrastructure resilience was held on Oct. 28, 2016 at Neville Hall in Lehigh University. Over 50 audiences attended this seminar, and 11 of them were professional engineers (PEs). PEs who attended this seminar were awarded 3 professional development hours (PDHs) free of charge.
