DIMACS/CCICADA Workshop on Urban Planning for Climate Events

Additional Information: The workshop will investigate sustainable human environments through an emphasis on urban planning for climate events such as storms, heat events, and floods. We will look at algorithmic tools to make better decisions about adaptation and mitigation for climate events. We 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. We 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. We will study algorithmic tools for evaluating, comparing, and making decisions about adaptation and mitigation strategies. Anyone interested can contribute a paper. Deadline for title/abstract submission is July 23, 2013; submit to froberts@dimacs.rutgers.edu. Authors of contributed papers will be notified of acceptance by August 15, 2013. The workshop is open to all who register.
Target Audience: Current Students,  Researchers,  Visitors,  Undergraduate Students,  Graduate Students,  Faculty
