  Abstract The importance of community resilience has become increasingly recognized in emergency management and community well-being after disasters. With this regard, three seismic resilience planning initiatives were conducted in the US in last ten years to assess and present current state and propose desired level of community resilience. Experts who participated these planning initiatives faced to some challenges that can be addressed for further planning initiatives. We interviewed with the participants to learn the planning process and figure out characteristics and challenges involved with this process. Conducting qualitative content analysis of the transcribed interviews, we provide these challenges.

Additionally, we discuss the advantages of using simulation modeling to facilitate this collaborative planning. We argue that while simulation modeling has the capability to overcome many of observed challenges, it is required to be designed deliberately to be best usable for experts. We refer it as Human-Centered Simulation Modeling.
