Simulation and Data Needs to Support Disaster Recovery Planning

January 30-31, 2020 | UC Berkeley, Berkeley, CA

This workshop presents an opportunity for the exchange of ideas between researchers, developers, and end-users of simulation tools, data, and results for regional risk assessments. The workshop aims to engage and connect experts and stakeholders from various parts of the disaster-science community through plenary and breakout sessions with the aim to identify where computational simulation tools, under development by the SimCenter and other groups, can support the work of various government agencies and organizations to promote resilience from natural disasters. The workshop agenda is designed to foster discussions and knowledge transfer across hazards (ground shaking, wind, and water), between disciplines (engineering, economics, social science), and among various roles in the community (stakeholder, project manager, analyst).

The workshop will be held at the University of California, Berkeley on January 30-31 2020. Through support from NSF, we are able to offer travel and lodging support to a limited number of participants to participate in the workshop.

Individuals interested in participating in the workshop are invited to apply by December 15, 2019.
