Resilience Week will include a thematic area for broad topical participation that focuses on recent natural and manmade events to establish challenges and solutions to further advance the resilience of our infrastructure and communities. Leveraging partnerships with government and industry, ground truth data from recent events will be provided for extraction and use by participants to align discussions on technology developments and research. The resulting forum will provide opportunity for a dialogue that will inform future research and technology development efforts to address pressing needs in anticipation of future catastrophic events.
