First International Conference on Surface Transportation System Resilience to Climate Change and Extreme Weather Events. September 17, 2015. Washington DC

Mari Tye presented in the "Collaborating across Cities, Regions and Countries" session on the development of ECEP, recent progress and future research directions. Presentations are available online through the conference website.

Engineering for Climate Extremes. August 19-21, 2015. National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, CO

Summary: Days one and two of this workshop engaged a cross-disciplinary group to understand how different groups have developed resilient responses to weather and climate extremes over the past year to exchange community knowledge. The third day focused information from the first two days into development of ECEP's vision, mission, and goals that will help establish research directions over the coming year. The presentation slides, videos and posters and meeting report are available online.
