11th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering

Assessment of reliability and risks for buildings

Despite the many positive achievements the societal activities are also associated with risks - risks which need to be managed. In regard to the broader utilization of risk assessment for societal strategic and operational planning there is still a great need for further development. In 2011 from August 1 to 4 the 11th Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering will be held at the ETH Zurich / Switzerland with the focus on helping to solve future problems.

By such a more holistic perspective the aim is to contribute to an enhanced and sustainable allocation of limited resources for the improvement of safety, environment and economy.
