Special Session XII

Resilience of Urban Infrastructure System

Urban infrastructure plays a fundamental role in maintaining the daily operation of a city. It encompasses the physical connections between places that facilitate the movement of people, information, materials, and energy, collectively known as the built environment. Additionally, it includes the social and economic infrastructure that supports crucial services such as healthcare, education, and other urban necessities. Unfortunately, urban infrastructure is vulnerable to various types of risks and uncertainties, including natural hazards and disasters like earthquakes and extreme weather events. The failure of these systems can have cascading and profound impacts on the city. Therefore, it is crucial to model, analyze, and optimize the resilience of such systems. Fortunately, emerging technologies such as machine learning and data-driven optimization approaches provide unprecedented opportunities for researchers to tackle this critical issue. This session will focus on the discussion of "Resilience of urban infrastructure system", exploring innovative approaches and strategies to address these challenges.


The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:
● Resilience modeling, optimization and analysis of urban infrastructure systems 城市基础设施系统的韧性建模、优化和分析
● Data-driven approaches in urban infrastructure resilience 在城市基础设施韧性方面的数据驱动方法
● Uncertainty modeling and analysis in resilience of urban infrastructure systems 城市基础设施系统韧性中的不确定性建模和分析
● Case studies in resilience of urban infrastructure systems 城市基础设施系统韧性的案例研究
