Igor Linkov - Resilience Assessment and Management in Transportation Networks

Transportation resilience measures a network’s ability to absorb, recover from, and adapt to both expected and unexpected disturbances.

REMI cordially invites you to a webinar presentation on Tuesday, April 2nd from 2 to 3 p.m. EST by guest speaker Igor Linkov, Ph.D., Risk and Decision Science Focus Area Lead for the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center and Adjunct Professor of Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University.

Resilience planning differs from risk analysis, which focuses on preparing for and absorbing specific predictable events. Resilience is demonstrated through complex adaptive systems integrating social, economic and infrastructure networks.

This presentation will explain different methods of transportation resilience quantification and present case studies in transportation. Dr. Linkov will consider the economic implications and discuss the modeling approaches behind the analysis.

Following the presentation, we will offer an opportunity for questions and answers.

The presentation will be approximately one hour in length, and we offer it at no charge via the Citrix GoToWebinar web conferencing platform. Advanced registration is required; please click here to register.
