Penn Workshop on Network Resilience

Friday, November 10th, 2017. University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.

Scope:

Resilience, a system’s ability to retain its basic functionality in the presence of errors, failures, and/or environmental changes, is a fundamental property of many complex systems. Despite widespread consequences for human health, the economy and the environment, events leading to loss of resilience—such as cascading failures in technological systems and financial networks—are rarely predictable and often irreversible.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from a variety of scientific disciplines to discuss emerging frameworks to analyze resilience in complex networks in order to prevent the collapse of complex networked systems, and to guide the design of technological and economic systems to be resilient against both internal failures and environmental changes.
