Publication type: Acrobat PDF

The Institute for Civil Infrastructure Systems (ICIS) will conduct a workshop in Washington DC June 25-27, 2001 with primary funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to provide the basis for a research agenda connecting IT and infrastructure for the NSF and other potential funders. Final results will be disseminated as a report to shape research agendas for the NSF and other institutions that engage in issues about infrastructure and information technology The workshop will convene professionals in infrastructure, IT, and social science disciplines from academia, industry, government and the not-for-profit sectors. The group will explore IT/infrastructure connections from system- and user-specific issues to more global perspectives on the role of IT-enabled infrastructure and urban development. New materials for IT systems, construction management, workforce adaptation to new IT skills, IT-enabled infrastructure for hazard prevention and response, integration and interaction of rapidly changing IT systems with older, more slowly changing infrastructure, and changes in urban development as a result of IT-enabled infrastructure are among the research areas the workshop will address.
