Workshop on Independent Networks

Workshop
 
For NYU Community

Assessing the robustness and resilience of interdependent power and communication networks is currently a hot research topic. This workshop will bring together researchers from both the U.S.A. and Europe to discuss the state-of-the-art with respect to modeling these issues and to elaborate possibilities for future collaboration in this field.

The workshop is organized by the NSF-projects Strategic Analysis and Design of Robust and Resilient Interdependent Power and Communication Networks, and Meta-Network System Framework for Resilient Analysis and Design of Modern Interdependent Critical Infrastructures, the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies in Security and Privacy (part of NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering), TNO (the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research), Delft University of Technology and the European project SUNSEED (Sustainable and robust networking for smart electricity distribution).
