5-in-5 oral presentations
During this lively session, authors will be allocated a five minutes slot to underline their research results through a five slides presentation. Presentations will run in parallel in thematic kiosks within the same hall, allowing delegates to seamlessly move from one kiosk to another during the 1-minute break between consecutive presentations.
The unique format of this session will encourage interaction between delegates and authors, and give the participants the opportunity to get a flavor of subjects other than their own specialty.
Physical Poster Boards will bear poster presentations during the coffee and lunch breaks
Mini Symposium: The big picture of Infrastructure Resilience
Recognition of our inherent inability to control nature (especially when resources are limited) has led the engineering community –driven by the earthquake engineering discipline– to pursue resilience as the most viable strategy to minimize the cost of the inevitable disaster.
In view of this, ICONHIC2016 is bringing together multi-disciplinary experts in a dedicated mini-symposium on Resilience spanning from preparedness and prevention to fast recovery and preservation of operability.
Attendees and supporters include major firms and individuals active not only in technical consulting but also urban resilience, civil protection, early warning and risk management.
Special Sessions, organized by field experts, will include theme talks by distinguished Lecturers, round-table discussions and paper presentations on hot topics. A list of the Special Sessions Confirmed to date follows below (session organizer(s) in brackets).
