Resilient Cities through Computation Workshop
Friday, April 10, 2020 | 9:00 am – 1:30 pm
Natural hazards research has evolved into highly specialized sub-disciplines, each dedicated to handling a subset of the overall problem. A key observation is that computational research is widespread in all subfields.
The “Resilient Cities through Computation” workshop will bring together researchers from across campus who are working on various aspects of disaster science and engineering to: 1) exchange information, and 2) discuss means by which to leverage their shared computational interest for achieving community resilience.
- Sherif El-Tawil (Civil and Environmental Engineering)
- Therese McAllister (National Institute of Standards and Technology) – Keynote Speaker
- Richard Rood (Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering)
- Seymour Spence (Civil and Environmental Engineering)
- Ming Xu (School of Environment and Sustainability)
- Valeriy Ivanov (Civil and Environmental Engineering)
- Seth Guikema (Industrial & Operations Engineering)
The workshop is sponsored by MICDE and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering under the auspices of its Adaptation research thrust. The event is organized by researchers from the NSF-funded Project ICoR (icor.engin.umich.edu).
HACKATHON: CREATING A HYBRID SIMULATION SYSTEM USING THE SIMPLE RUN TIME INFRASTRUCTURE SOFTWARE
Thursday, April 9, 2020 | 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
The hackathon’s goal is to introduce the Simple Run-Time Infrastructure software toolkit (SRTI) to the participants, and provide a template project consisting of multiple simulators, each with a specialized purpose, relating to a natural-disaster scenario.
This is a free event and all students from any school/institution are welcome. You need basic coding skills to participate.
The first, second and third place winners will received monetary prizes of $1000, $600 and $400.
