Mini-Symposium 16:

Risk Assessment and Management of Infrastructure Projects


Risks and uncertainties are pervasive in infrastructure projects, such as tunnels, bridges, dams, high rising buildings, and other structures. Using reasonable principles and methods is essential for effective and cost-efficient risk assessment and management in the whole life of a project, from project planning, design, and construction, to operation, maintenance, and decommission. This mini symposium concerns the recent progress about project risk assessment and management for various infrastructures, both in theoretical development and practical applications.

We envisage up to one 90 to 120-minute mini symposium with papers demonstrating the state of the art and practice of project risk assessment and management in the area. In particular, papers are invited that address the implementation of risk management principles and practices in project organizations, or the effective and cost-efficient integration of risk management with related managerial issues, such as quality management, safety management, and environmental management.

Number of papers in a MS: 6 to 8 papers.
