Specific Topics –
The Symposium will emphasize the methods of reliability engineering and risk management of engineering systems with special applications on the assessment of safety and reliability, the planning and design, maintenance and retrofitting of infrastructure systems under conditions of uncertainty. Specific topics would include those identified above (non inclusive):
– Reliability-based methods
– Design and operation of infrastructure systems under uncertainty
– Application of reliability-based methods to specific infrastructure systems, including
Short Descriptions of Specific Topics –
The Symposium will emphasize the practical applications of a number of topics, all of which are currently of major technological significance, including the following:
To serve society and the public, all of the engineering systems described above must ensure system safety where lives are concerned, or system reliability where sustained operational performance is required. In practical terms, such concerns must be considered and evaluated under conditions of uncertainty.
Uncertainties are unavoidable in predicting future conditions during the planning and design of any infrastructure system. In light of such uncertainties, the proper approach in the design of a new infrastructure system, as well as in maintenance and retrofitting of an existing system over its life-cycle; therefore, would properly require the reliability-based approach.
Taiwan Tech is organizing the International Symposium on Reliability and Safety of Multi-disciplinary Engineering Systems Under Uncertainty to address the major and related issues described above. The Symposium is planned to be held on the campus of Taiwan Tech, scheduled for 8 - 11 December 2019. The Symposium will cover ongoing and emerging research and development (including student dissertations) in reliability engineering with emphasis on the major infrastructure engineering systems mentioned above. It will also cover novel applications of technology to specific types of engineering systems.
Prospective authors of papers for the Symposium are encouraged to submit short abstracts of papers (limited to 200-300 words) for presentations at the Symposium and publication of the respective full papers in the Proceedings volume.
All abstracts have been postponed to 1 October 2019, please send them via email to the secretariat ISRMES2019@mail.ntust.edu.tw.
