About this event

Infrastructure networks provide the backbone of highly interdependent supply chains that underpin economies and societies on a local, regional and global scale. Recent events have shown that failures within these networks can have cascading and unintended consequences that cannot be easily militated against.  For this reason organisations and governments are being challenged to understand and manage risk across interdependent infrastructure networks.

The IET will be producing a number of Special Interest Publications on Infrastructure Risk and Resilience over the next 12 months.  These publications will have a common theme of infrastructure resilience but be addressing different sectors by publication.

The provisional publications being proposed are:

  • Transportation Infrastructure Risk & Resilience
  • Energy Networks Risk & Resilience
  • ICT Networks Risk & Resilience

Transportation Infrastructure Risk Resilience – Call for Papers

The IET has committed to delivering a Special Interest Publication addressing Transportation Infrastructure Risk & Resilience, and supporting systems including power and communications.  Therefore a call for papers has now been issued, welcoming abstracts on the following topic areas:

Scope of papers

Note: This topics guide is not exhaustive and is intended only to provide a guide to the scope of the publication.

  •  Asset Management of Railway and Highway infrastructure and supporting  systems
  • Multi-modal transport systems and integration of differing  infrastructure
  • Natural Hazard, man –made accident and terrorist  threat identification and modelling
  • Risk analysis and assessment methods, including scenarios and game theory simulations
  • Adaptation to climate change
  • System dependencies and independencies
  • Identifying suitable risk prevention and mitigation measures
  • Risk and operational management of infrastructure
  • Crisis Management
  • Determination of criticality
  • Scale and network effects
  • Network effects

Submission process 

Abstracts can be submitted by competing the Abstract Template.

The completed abstract must then be emailed to Bruce McLelland, IET Built Environment Sector Head. Please see “Key dates” below.

Abstract Submission Template (Transport Infrastructure Resilience)

Full Paper submission

Authors will be notified on the 10 December whether their abstracts have been selected for a full paper.

Accepted papers will be published in the Special Interest Journal “Infrastructure Risk and Resilience”, which is identified by an International Standard Book Number and recognised as a commercial publication.  In addition, publishing in:

  • IET INSPEC:  Inspec is a major indexing database and incredibly valuable source for scientists, engineers and information professionals around the world. The Inspec database contains nearly 12 million bibliographic abstracts and indexing to journal articles, conference proceedings, technical reports and other literature in the fields of science and technology.
  • IET Digital Library:  The IET Digital Library holds more than highly cited 100,000 technical papers for all IET journals, magazines, conference and seminar proceedings.
  • IEEE Xplore. Delivering full text access to the world's highest quality technical literature in engineering and technology, IEEE Xplore is a scholarly research database that indexes, abstracts, and provides full-text for articles and papers on computer science, electrical engineering and electronics.  The IEEE Xplore database contains over two million records, which is almost one third of the world’s current literature in electrical engineering, communications and computer science.

Any enquiries can be directed to Bruce McLelland +44 (0) 1438 765634.

Case studies

Case studies and posters (supported by extended synopses) relating to any of the above, demonstrating application of innovative techniques to solve real-world problems are also invited for submission for an overarching online Resource page on Infrastructure Risk and Resilience.
