The workshop will be held in conjunction with the International Conference on Sustainable Design, Engineering and Construction in Changsha, Hunan, between September 19th and 22nd, 2014. The focus of this workshop is to identify emerging global trends in the research of sustainability and resilience in engineering, design, and urban planning from around the world. The one-day workshop will have two key foci: 1. Developing the framework of knowledge and research needs to support the development of sciences and practices in the field of sustainability and resilience in design and engineering; and 2. Strong international collaboration. The project will initiate a platform to support cross-disciplinary sustainability knowledge exchange. The workshop will also establish a network of researchers who are interested to conduct research on this theme. Academia and industry participants at the workshop are expected to be multi-disciplinary, and should come from different fields such as engineering, urban planning, architecture, and physical sciences. The proposed workshop will bridge crossdisciplinary knowledge gap and foster closer working relationships between academics and industry professionals. The requested fund from NSF will be used to fund travel for participating faculties to attend the ETSRR Workshop. Funded faculties are required to submit concept paper(s) after the meeting. They have to illustrate their thoughts on ETSRR and they will be used to develop the workshop. Their papers will illustrate the framework for the conference theme. The proposal will include: (1) an 8-hour workshop (broken down into 4 sessions) for academics and industry participants to share ideas and research findings; and (2) a website that publishes and documents the findings and a website to initiate potential collaborations. The workshop will be broken down into four sessions that include presentations and discussions between the presenters and the participants.
