Welcome to CRISP
This is the web home of the multi-disciplinary center within Purdue's College of Engineering called the Center for Resilient Infrastructures, Systems, and Processes (CRISP).
Our society is crucially dependent on several interdependent critical infrastructure systems and processes for operating these systems. These are subjected to various kinds of hazards and faults, both natural and malicious, often leading to user-visible failures. Our center provides the scientific method to analyze the failure modes of the infrastructures and provide engineering tools to systematically build in resilience. Initial focus areas are cyberinfrastructure, cyber physical systems, and large-scale built structures. We will develop techniques that apply broadly across multiple domains to complement existing domain-specific techniques from the specialists.
We are thankful to our sponsors for enabling our mission in research and education. [ WWW ]
NSF funds CRISP to organize a "Grand Challenges in Resilience Workshop". This was held at Purdue on November 13-15.
NSF's CISE and ENG Directorates jointly funded us to organize this workshop. It involved about 70 attendees, 25 of them external to Purdue, comprising academicians, industry practitioners, and federal government personnel.
What Are We All About?
