IFED is sponsored and organized by the Five-University Consortium on Uncertainty, Risk and Decision Making in Engineering. Forums are held every 12-18 months, to provide an opportunity to share exciting developments, and to stimulate new initiatives in engineering decision making and risk analysis for engineering systems.

Mark Stewart is a professor of civil engineering and Director of the Centre for Infrastructure Performance and Reliability at the University of Newcastle.

Stuart Reid is an associate professor of civil engineering at the University of Sydney.
