2019 World Congress on

Resilience, Reliability and Asset Management

28 – 31 July 2019


The emergence of cyber-physical systems (CPS) in the last decade has greatly enhanced the connectivity and interdependency between various infrastructural and industrial systems; and thus leading to greater complexity in the planning, design and operations of system of systems.

The World Congress aims to bring resilience, reliability and asset engineering scientists, policymakers, and infrastructure professionals together to share their latest knowledge on how to make systems more robust and resilient. The cross-fertilization of ideas, approaches and best practices is expected to yield new insights and solutions to improve the management of infrastructure assets and systems.

The inaugural congress is organized by the following five scientific communities in 2019 which marks the 200th anniversary of the founding of Singapore in 1819. They are

  • The Future Resilient Systems research program of the Singapore-ETH Center under Singapore’s National Research Foundation CREATE initiative
  • Beihang University’s School of Reliability and Systems Engineering
  • Temasek Defence Systems Institute
  • International Society of Engineering Asset Management
  • Singapore’s chapter of the International System Safety Society
