Workshop on urban planning for climate events

Type:
Meeting or Conference
Organizer:
Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS); Command, Control, and Interoperability Center for Advanced Data Analysis (CCICADA)
Date:
23-24 Sep 2013
Location:
United States of America
Venue:
DIMACS Center, CoRE Building, Rutgers University

This workshop will investigate sustainable human environments through an emphasis on urban planning for climate events such as storms, heat events, and floods. they will look at algorithmic tools to make better decisions about adaptation and mitigation for climate events. They will look at ways to understand a great deal of data that might be relevant to adaptation planning for sea level rise, flight delays, beach erosion, ferry service interruptions, salt water intrusion, water treatment plant operations, power plant location, subway and train track location, and emergency services preparedness. They will consider planning for modifications in the energy, transportation, water supply, waste, and communications sectors. Changes in one sector potentially impact other sectors and so call for mathematical modeling and algorithmic analysis. They will study algorithmic tools for evaluating, comparing, and making decisions about adaptation and mitigation strategies.
