SAME Philadelphia Resiliency Symposium 2019 | DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Philadelphia Center City | Thursday, 14. November 2019

3rd Annual Philadelphia Resiliency Symposium
November 14th, 2019
DoubleTree Hotel, Philadelphia PA
The Philadelphia Post of the Society of American Military Engineers is hosting the 3rd Annual Philadelphia Resiliency Symposium.  We hope to bring together resiliency practitioners from the Greater Philadelphia Area and beyond who can speak to infrastructure resiliency in the **** of extreme storms and other natural disasters.
Compared to the 2018 event, we have added more time for networking, a poster session, a larger vendor exhibit area, and an earlier finish so you can beat traffic.  
Call for Abstracts 
We will select nine abstracts for podium presentations.  We are also selecting abstracts for poster presentations this year.
Suggested Topic Categories
In general, we will rely on the community of practitioners to be the barometer indicating what topics resonate most keenly within the field of resilience/sustainable infrastructure.  Ideally, topics will have a NY, NJ, PA, or DE focus, but all geographies will be considered.  What follows is a list of suggested topics.  Please do not feel bound by this list:

Electrical Grid Resiliency 
Coastal Resiliency
Climate Vulnerability and Adaptation/Flood Risk
Transportation Resiliency
Water Infrastructure Resiliency
Health Care Infrastructure Resiliency
Historical Building Resiliency
Public/Private Partnerships for Resiliency 

Abstract Preparation
We invite all interested parties to submit abstracts for consideration.  Abstracts should be 500 words or less and should be structured as follows:
