The ICoR team organized a workshop titled Resilient Cities through Computation as part of the 2020 MICDE Symposium at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI, USA), taking place April 9-10, 2020. In addition to renowned speakers, the event also featured an SRTI-themed hackathon to introduce SRTI and its capabilities to the broader research community.
See for more information.UPDATE: Event rescheduled as an online-only event for Friday, October 9, 2020. See for details.
