Bridging Big Data workshop is Oct. 14 at Nebraska Innovation Campus.

Bridges across the U.S., especially those in rural areas, are deteriorating at an alarming rate and an estimated $76 billion is needed to improve bridges nationwide.

How our bridges are managed and repaired or replaced will require innovative bridge health monitoring solutions to guide management, maintenance and replacement without risking public safety.

The Oct. 14 Bridging Big Data 2019 workshop (BBD 2019) will bring together bridge dataset owners, big data solution providers and academics to discuss these problems and possible solution by focusing on big data pipelines for aging rural bridge infrastructure.

BBD 2019, which is co-hosted by the University of Nebraska at Omaha and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Nebraska Innovation Campus, 2021 Transformation Drive.

The workshop is organized by College of Engineering faculty Daniel Linzell and Chungwook Sim, and by UNO faculty Robin A. Gandhi, Deepak Khazanchi and Brian Ricks. BBD 2019 is sponsored by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

This workshop will focus on areas related to bridge structural health, including data management, decision support systems, social-technological impact and next-gen health monitoring.

Registration for BBD 2019 is free, but is required. Go to https://bridgingbigdata.eventbrite.comto register.

Those interested in presenting their work at BBD 2019 are asked to contact Brian Ricks by Oct. 2 with a brief abstract that describes their poster and/or demonstration. Guidelines for those presentations are available at https://bridgingbigdata.github.io/pages/bbd2019posterdemo.html
