Proceedings of the fourth Resilience Engineering Symposium June 8-10, 2011, Sophia Antipolis, France by Marcus Abrahamsson( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These proceedings document the various presentations at the Fourth Resilience Engineering Symposium held on June 8-10, 2011, in Sophia-Antipolis, France. The Symposium gathered participants from five continents and provided them with a forum to exchange experiences and problems, and to learn about Resilience Engineering from the latest scientific achievements to recent practical applications. The First Resilience Engineering Symposium was held in Söderköping, Sweden, on October 25-29 2004. The Second Resilience Engineering Symposium was held in Juan-les-Pins, France, on November 8-10 2006, The Third Resilience Engineering Symposium was held in Juan-les-Pins, France, on October 28-30 2008. Since the first Symposium, resilience engineering has fast become recognised as a valuable complement to the established approaches to safety. Both industry and academia have recognised that resilience engineering offers valuable conceptual and practical basis that can be used to attack the problems of interconnectedness and intractability of complex socio-technical systems. The concepts and principles of resilience engineering have been tested and refined by applications in such fields as air traffic management, offshore production, patient safety, and commercial fishing. Continued work has also made it clear that resilience is neither limited to handling threats and disturbances, nor confined to situations where something can go wrong. Today, resilience is understood as the intrinsic ability of a system to adjust its functioning prior to, during, or following changes and disturbances, so that it can sustain required operations under both expected and unexpected conditions. This definition emphasizes the ability to continue functioning, rather than simply to react and recover from disturbances and the ability to deal with diverse conditions of functioning, expected as well as unexpected. For anyone who is interested in learning more about Resilience Engineering, the books

Creating a culture of welcome in the local church by Alison Gilchrist( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Juggling with books, not knowing when to sit or stand, being glared at for sitting in the wrong seat, for many people, their first visit to a church service is about as enjoyable as a trip to the dentist. But why do churches become so unfriendly, and how can we create a culture of welcome? This practical study looks at the reality of people's experience, the roots of the problem, and offers workable strategies for bringing about a change in culture."--Back cover
