Resilience is the ability to prepare for, adapt, and recover rapidly from disruptions.  Regional and community resilience research has been pursued by government labs such as Argonne, Oak Ridge, and NIST as well as across academia and industry.  The modeling process is complex and research has made significant strides over the last decade; in particular, merging different disciplines and including their interaction with the physical infrastructure.  This seminar will begin with an overview of the Center for Risk-Based Community Resilience Planning’s approach to modeling physical infrastructure including the Interdependent Networked Community Resilience Modeling Environment (IN-CORE), which represents state-of-the-art in resilience modeling.  Then, the process being used to take a research tool from science creation to implementation by using In-CORE as a behind-the-scenes engine to interact with the NIST Community Resilience Planning Guide.  This will include a demo of the web interface under development and close with next steps including community partnerships to refine the tool intended to take resilience research to practice.
