SRA-E 2020 Call for abstracts

The Discipline(s) of Risk Science

We welcome contributions on topics related to risk assessment, risk characterization, risk perception, risk communication, risk management, risk governance, and policy relating to risk, in the context of risks of concern to individuals, to public and private sector organizations, and to society at local, regional, national, or global levels.

At the SRA-Europe Conference in Espoo, presentations will be held in the following formats:

  1. Symposia: Represent a group of oral presentations (minimum 3 presentations; maximum 5 presentations) by one or more authors each, organized around one common topic +
    one short symposium introduction by the coordinator + symposium Q&A/discussion.
    Symposium duration: 90 min.
  2. Oral presentations: Represent individual oral presentations by one or more authors +
    Q&A/ discussion for all presentations at the session’s end.
    Individual presentation duration: 15 min.
  3. Poster presentations: Represent an individual poster presentation by one or more authors + individual Q&A/discussion of the poster.

The organizers will allocate stand-alone oral presentations to thematic sessions. Symposia are
self-organized sessions which have a specific thematic focus. Abstracts for oral presentations for symposia must indicate which symposium they belong to.
