The 23rd SRA-Europe conference will be held 16-18 June 2014 in Istanbul, Turkey and hosted by Istanbul Technical University. The special theme of the conference is “Analysis and Governance of Risks beyond Boundaries” to emphasize that risks are able to travel through the virtual boundaries labeled as “regions”, “territories” and “countries”, to promote recent scientific novelties in risk reduction and to enhance inter-disciplinary approaches to develop new strategies in both evaluating and coping with well-known and less-known risks.
The Society for Risk Analysis is a multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, scholarly, international society that provides an open forum for all those who are interested in risk analysis. Risk analysis is broadly defined to include risk assessment, risk characterization, risk communication, risk management, and policy relating to risk, in the context of risks of concern to individuals, to public- and private-sector organizations, and to society at a local, regional, national, or global level.
The SRA-Europe Conference in 2014 is open to all interested researchers and experts in the various fields of risk analysis. Industry representatives, governmental bodies and relevant public and private institutions are welcomed. Graduate students are also encouraged to participate.
Each conference day will open with a plenary session with keynote presentations, followed by parallel sessions and special symposia related to the specific topics. Presentations on other topics within the broad interest of SRA are also welcomed.
