Large disasters may ripple across cities, regions or even nationally through interconnected critical infrastructure systems.

Right now, many of those connections are invisible, making it very difficult to put effective mitigation strategies in place. Critical links are often uncovered too late, causing greater impacts to infrastructure and challenging recovery efforts on the ground.

Join us for the Resilience Week 2020 Symposium to discuss how private and public partners can work together to ensure a secure and reliable flow of energy across the nation.

Organizing Committee

Lawrence Paul Lewis, Argonne National Lab

“The most important part about participating in conferences like this is to get a little bit more perspective about what all of your colleagues throughout the community are also working on.”

Nick Multari, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

“The main reason that I come to Resilience Week is because I really believe that we have issues with cybersecurity. We really need to be able to approach this is by looking at the cyber-resilience aspects, the ability to continue performing the critical functions.”

Andy Novocion, University of Delaware

“These are places where a bright, motivated student can find a career for themselves, can find a way to affect a positive change.”
