We need to act

Even if new infrastructure could be constructed to be immune to disasters (a knowingly utopic scenario), the vast amount of existing networks would be operating at sub-standard –if not unsafe- service levels; too weak to defend themselves when attacked by natural threats. Action must be taken to prepare infrastructure systems in order to handle the needs of the future and be ready for the unknown events that may occur.

in a disruptive way

The need to renew existing systems is obviously acute, but doing so in the conventional manner is too resource-demanding to be viable. While recent research suggests that the global spending for infrastructure reaches a mere 50% of that required just to keep up with our needs, the rapid expansion of urbanized regions is unavoidably pursued by the need to enlarge its capacity. Going beyond the state of practice is essential.

so come on board

Engineers, financers, policy makers and innovators, both practitioners and academics, need to join forces. ICONHIC2019 invites all stakeholders to come together to question the status quo by proposing out-of-the-box solutions. Challenging panel discussions, top-notch lectures, bilateral meetings, oral sessions and a pre-conference forum are combined to maximize impact and applicability of proposed ideas.
