Visible to the public 2019 FRONTIERS IN RESILIENCEConflict Detection Enabled

Critical Infrastructure Resilience Through Communication, Coordination, and Collaboration


The 2019 Frontiers in Resilience Symposium will focus on the role of communication, coordination, and collaboration for critical infrastructure resilience. This theme recognizes the increasing importance of multi-stakeholder partnerships--across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors--in promoting resilience within and across increasingly interdependent critical infrastructure sectors.

The Symposium will bring together thought leaders, practitioners, and multidisciplinary academics in a two-day, highly interactive format. Speakers and participants will provide insights into best practices to promote resilience through communication, coordination, and collaboration as well as challenges and opportunities for specific critical infrastructure sectors. The Symposium will also provide a forum for developing novel multi-stakeholder partnerships and research agendas.

The Symposium will feature keynotes, moderated roundtables, a tabletop exercise, and panels. Featured key note speakers include Rear Admiral (ret.) Ann C. Phillips and General (ret.) Michael V. Hayden.


Registration is required for all attendees. Registration is $200.00 and includes both days of event participation, two sponsored lunches, all breaks, and a networking reception.
