Call for Abstracts: Society for Risk Analysis – Benelux Annual Conference 2019

The 2019 SRA-Benelux Conference focuses on the theme: “Reasoning with Uncertainty”.
Experts, practitioners and policy makers often have to make decisions under conditions of
uncertainty. This sometimes leads to catastrophic outcomes, but often also results in
averted disasters, innovation and unexpected discoveries. This conference, is devoted to
how risk research(ers) can better inform decision-making in the face of uncertainty,
anticipate negative outcomes, increase the propensity for positive outcomes, and better
communicate uncertainty.

SRA-Benelux invites contributions that reflect on the conceptual and practical dimensions of  uncertainty; uncertainty issues that have been neglected; new and innovative approaches to  understanding and dealing with uncertainty; how policy makers, industry decision-makers,  and practitioners can make better decisions under uncertainty; and uncertainty  communication. Papers that address the following topical areas (in relation, but not limited to, Benelux countries) are especially welcome:

  • Systemic risks
  • Brexit and future stability of the EU
  • Climate change
  • Health and safety
  • Cybersecurity
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Smart cities and urban development

This conference is aimed at bringing together researchers, academics, practitioners and
policy makers from the Benelux region and beyond to discuss common issues of interest.
Members of the SRA-E, SRA International and other regional SRA organizations are also most  welcome to participate.

The conference will be held at the University of Luxembourg, on 25-26 March 2019 at the
Belval Campus, situated in the south of Luxembourg. The University is located in what used  to be a steel production facility, which was abandoned in the late 1990s with the decline in  steel production and redeveloped as a scientific and cultural centre in 2001. The University  and research centre buildings have been built around and into the remains of the steel  factory as a way of preserving the industrial heritage of the site.

We look forward to seeing you in Luxembourg!

Abstracts and queries can be submitted to Dr. Catherine Wong at catherine.wong@uni.lu
until 7 December 2018.
