Conference Highlights

CREATING A MULTI-STAKEHOLDER MEETING POINT

In a time of augmented need for interdisciplinary effort, ICONHIC2021 aims to bring together actors from different fields (engineers, insurers, cat modellers, policymakers, NGOs) in order to facilitate dialogue and shape an informed course of action towards the ever-increasing extreme natural events.

LEVERAGING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO MITIGATE NATURAL DISASTERS

In light of the rapid technological advances in the fields of Big Data, Machine Learning,
and Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), ICONHIC2021 aims to highlight how this technology combined with engineering knowledge can become the decisive link in the action chain towards disaster relief, preparedness and reduction of economic losses due to natural hazards.

SHAPING URBAN SUSTAINABILITY REQUIREMENTS

As countries across the globe become increasingly urbanized, ICONHIC2021 targets the appropriate synergies for an in-depth discussion on the pathways to be followed for encouraging investments and informing management decisions towards sustainable urban environments.
