Description

Society for Risk Anlaysis (SRA) -Benelux Conference 2019: "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. The event brings together researchers from the Benelux region and globally to present their latest research on the following themes:

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

HIGHLIGHTS : We have an excellent lineup of high-level speakers from academia, industry and government speaking on three special panels on "Brexit and the Future Stability of the EU", "Space Exploration" and "Digital Futures". See Conference highlights for list of speakers.

Registration is free but mandatory. In order to be included in the participant list, please ensure that you register before 8 March 2019.
