Mini-Symposium 5:

Water Resources and Infrastructure: Risks and Responses


Many uncertainties arise in the design, management and operation of water resources and infrastructure. These uncertainties result from urban development, changes and irregularities in home and industrial usage, technological innovation, pollution, politics and geo-politics, climate change, natural events such as earthquakes, and other factors that make the future difficult to predict. Many tools are used in modeling and managing these uncertainties, and in designing responses to extreme or unforeseen contingencies. These tools include statistical analysis, info-gap theory, imprecise probability, P-bound analysis, fuzzy logic, case-based reasoning, professional judgment and deliberation, and more. This mini-symposium will bring together academic, industrial and governmental scholars, engineers and managers to share experiences on these issues.
