From August 13th to 15th, 2021, the "Sixth National Engineering Risk and Insurance Research Symposium" was held at Chongqing University. This conference is under the guidance of the Chinese Society of Civil Engineering and jointly organized by the Engineering Risk and Insurance Research Branch of the Chinese Society of Civil Engineering, Chongqing University, National Joint Engineering Research Center of Geohazards Prevention in the Reservoir Areas, Chongqing Research Institute of Geology and Mineral Resources, Wuhan Guangyi Transportation Science and Technology Co., Ltd. The symposium was also co-organized by the Ministry of Emergency Management, National Academy of Natural Disaster Prevention, Arup, Nanjing Kuntuo Civil Engineering Technology Co., Ltd., China Continent Insurance Co., Ltd., "Earth Science" editorial office, Shenzhen Pegasus Robotics Technology Co., Ltd., Jiangxi East Tunnel Technology Co., Ltd., Beijing Jiangwei Times Technology Co., Ltd., "Chinese and English Edition of Civil and Environmental Engineering" and "Journal of Mountain Science" editorial offices.
Affected by the epidemic, this conference was held offline and online. The offline attracted more than 100 scholars, experts, and graduate students from more than 40 universities, insurance and engineering units. Until 11 o'clock in the morning of August 15th, the number of online live broadcast participants reached 15,000. The purpose of the conference is to further exchange the latest research and practical engineering experience in the field of engineering risk and insurance, and jointly promote the level of engineering risk management and insurance management in China.
The opening ceremony of the symposium was presided over by Professor Jianmin Hua, the Party Committee Secretary of the School of Civil Engineering of Chongqing University. Professor Hongwei Huang, Chairman of the Engineering Risk and Insurance Research Branch of the Chinese Civil Engineering Society, Professor Hanlong Liu, Executive Vice President of Chongqing University, Professor Qiang Xu, Vice President of Chengdu University of Technology, Professor Dongsheng Liu, Chief Engineer of Chongqing Bureau of Geology and Mineral Exploration and Development, Fan Zhang, General Manager of IDI Business Department of China Continent Insurance, Xiaoqian Sun, Deputy Director of Arup, Yongyi Wang, Chief Engineer of China Construction Transportation Construction Group Co., Ltd., Professor Wanxue Long, Guizhou Transportation Planning, Survey and Design Institute Co., Ltd. and other experts attended the opening ceremony. Professor Mingan Li, Secretary-General of the Chinese Civil Engineering Society, Professor Hongwei Huang, Chairman of the Engineering Risk and Insurance Research Branch of the Chinese Civil Engineering Society, and Professor Hanlong Liu, Vice President of Chongqing University delivered speeches respectively.

The symposium organized 15 specially invited reports, 16 invited reports, and 121 reports in 9 sessions of online sub-venues including the special sessions, the master forums, and the International Association of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering Data Competition. The symposium is divided into tunnel and underground engineering risk, first-class English journal in the field of geotechnical and geology organization forum, teaching reform on the engineering reliability and risk forum, earthquake landslide and geological disaster risk, earthquake liquefaction disaster and risk assessment, and responsibility for potential defects in practice construction engineering quality Insurance (IDI), big data and machine learning in risk prevention and control, wind disaster and marine engineering risk, intelligent management on engineering risk and control forum, water conservancy and hydropower engineering risk, engineering insurance theory and practice, master and doctoral postgraduate forums, etc. Deep discussions were given in the symposium closely focusing on engineering risk and insurance.
With the end of the opening ceremony, the special academic reports of the main venue and the branch venues began one after another under the leadership of Academician Xiangsheng Chen, bringing academic feasts to the participating experts and scholars.
In this symposium, Academician Xiangsheng Chen actively advocated a three-dimensional resilient city system consisting of resilient cities and holographic perception and intelligent resilient management. The report pointed out that the creation of super-large resilient cities is of great significance to the future development of cities. When disasters or emergencies occur, whether a resilient city can perceive, respond quickly, recover quickly, keep the city basically operating normally, and better respond to future disaster risks through self-regulation is vital to city safety, and it also shows the solutions and ideas for various disasters for the futures of cities.
Academician Xiangsheng Chen of Shenzhen University gave an online report titled "Global Three-dimensional Resilience (Resilient City)-The Cornerstone of Urban Security"
