2019 Frontiers in Resilience Symposium

January 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am - January 15, 2019 @ 3:30 pm UTC-5

Sandia National Laboratories and George Mason University’s Schar School of Policy and Government invite you to attend the annual Frontiers in Resilience Symposium, January 14-15, 2019.

The 2019 Frontiers in Resilience Symposium will focus on the role of communication, coordination, and collaboration for critical infrastructure resilience. This theme recognizes the increasing importance of multi-stakeholder partnerships—across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors—in promoting resilience within and across increasingly interdependent critical infrastructure sectors.

The Symposium will bring together thought leaders, practitioners, and multidisciplinary academics in a two-day, highly interactive format. Speakers and participants will provide insights into best practices to promote resilience through communication, coordination, and collaboration as well as challenges and opportunities for specific critical infrastructure sectors. The Symposium will also provide a forum for developing novel multi-stakeholder partnerships and research agendas.

The Symposium will feature keynotes, moderated roundtables, a tabletop exercise, and panels. These sessions will explore theoretical approaches to communication, coordination, and collaboration as well as application cases within and across four critical infrastructure sectors: energy, transportation, water, and communications.
