The CCICADA Center at Rutgers University is pleased to announce a follow-up to last year's highly successful Workshop on S&T Innovations in Hurricane Sandy Research (June 2013). Last year's workshop highlighted ongoing research by NSF-funded investigators on a wide range of projects related to preparation, response and recovery following Hurricane Sandy (see http://dimacs.rutgers.edu/Workshops/Sandy/). This year's workshop will focus on results and discoveries produced by these and other Sandy-related projects and on applications of this work.
The workshop will be held at Rutgers University October 21-22, 2014 and will feature presentations and accommodate and encourage discussions and networking. Attendees will include a wide range of researchers along with individuals from appropriate State and Federal governmental agencies and organizations (e.g., DHS, NSF, FEMA, US Coast Guard).
The specific goal of this workshop is to disseminate methodologies, results and implications of research based on Hurricane Sandy and to lay out a set of research challenges for the future. Brief working papers and posters presented at the workshop are expected to lay the groundwork for publication elsewhere with contributions from Sandy-related research in the broad areas of disaster preparation, impact assessment, response and recovery.
The workshop will begin at 9 AM on October 21, 2014 and end after lunch on October 22, 2014. The agenda will consist of presentations and poster sessions, organized by topic area, with time for discussion among all attendees. Please return to this website for updated information on the program.
