Workshop on science and technology innovations in Hurricane Sandy research

Type:
Training Course
Organizer:
Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS); Command, Control, and Interoperability Center for Advanced Data Analysis (CCICADA)
Date:
05 Jun 2013
Location:
United States of America (Piscataway, New Jersey)
Venue:
CCICADA Center at Rutgers University
The goal of this workshop is to identify opportunities to support the research, whether through synergies with other investigators or through interactions with governmental organizations, of perishable data from natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy. In the longer term, the workshop is expected to lay the groundwork for a publication with contributions from Sandy-related research in the broad areas of disaster impact assessment, response and recovery. To support this longer-term goal, we anticipate holding a second workshop in late summer 2014.

The workshop is expected to advance discovery while accelerating transferral of research results to practice. It will seek to address disaster planning, response and recovery, and will provide a platform for dialogue between individuals across DHS, NSF and academia. Finally, given the likely long-term consequences of Hurricane Sandy, the results of this work are expected to be of broad interest to government, industry, academia and the public at large.
