Åre Risk Event, 12-14 March 2013 (deadline extension)

Extended deadline for abstracts: December 23 2012 

Welcome to Åre Risk Event which will be held for the second consecutive year at hotel Holiday Club in the ski-resort Åre, 1 hours drive from Östersund, Sweden.

This year’s conference theme is “Risk and Crisis Management” and the conference focuses on the future management and leadership in a changing society. What characterizes the management and leadership in a socially heterogeneous society that is constantly exposed to risks and crises? Also, questions on power and the role of social media is brought to a head.

The conference gathers researchers, entrepreneurs, politicians and representatives of public and voluntary organizations to exchange knowledge about the risk and crisis management in our society. The programme is still tentative but will consist of lectures and paper sessions, mixed with workshops and exchange of experiences in smaller groups.

The conference seeks to include researchers on an interdisciplinary basis, all with an interest in risk and crisis research. We welcome papers with a broad range of perspectives on topics like, for instance,

  • management of operations that includes unknown actors,
  • management of organized as well as unorganized volunteers,
  • management of temporary organizations,
  • power and management/leadership during risk and crisis.

Abstracts, with a maximum of 200 words plus full name, department/institution, and the author(s) contacts, should be sent by December 23 2012 to the following e-mail address: johanna.ekroth@miun.se

Notification of acceptance will be announced by January 12 2013
