They will be delivered to all participants together by 2 internationally renowned experts moderated by a panel consisting of Steering Committee members. In order to cross-fertilize experience and methodologies, these sessions will have a slightly longer duration allowing for some discussion- which of course could then be continued at the end of the session.
These sessions will focus on specific research fields. They will be organized and moderated by 2 chairpersons and will be running in parallel sessions. Each GS will include oral presentations of papers submitted to the conference.
Special Sessions will include a panel of invited speakers on cross-cutting topics and will be even organized by companies. SS could include presentation of suitable papers submitted to the conference.
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
Natural Hazards are not the only threats imposed on our critical infrastructure. Protection against Man-made hazards such as blasts is today more than ever a pre-requisite for the safety of our infrastructure and of the society relying on it.
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).
