We are organizing a series of interdisciplinary workshops where researchers and practitioners (from both public and private sectors) discuss sustainable solutions to post-disaster debris and associated management challenges. We are inviting a diverse group of participants ranging from engineering to social sciences and art from both academic and industry communities to this first workshop to (i) introduce the community to SUMMEER, (ii) understand data needs for sustainable debris management, and (iii) identify and prioritize perishable as well as nonperishable data needs for effective post-disaster data collection.

The first SUMMEER workshop was held on January 13-14, 2022, in Tallahassee, FL, on the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering campus. You can find the workshop report in the Resources page.

The second SUMMEER workshop was held on September 15-16, 2022, in San Luis Obispo, CA, on the California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo campus. The workshop report will be soon published.

Please contact us if you would like information about it or be part of future workshops.
