We welcome applications for:
- Symposia presentation. (3-5 individual talks + general discussion by groups of researchers/practitioners working in a similar area or on specific themes are particularly welcome, especially if they present a range of divergent views or perspectives from different disciplinary perspectives.)
- Individual talks;
- Poster presentations that address these issues.
Participants are invited to critically reflect on risk science and the promises and challenges of developing science-informed policy.
The conference will be a platform for discussion of all aspects of risk analysis including: assessment, management and communication, and it will provide access to state of the art perspectives from across Europe. It values inter-disciplinarity in research and education, and processes of knowledge exchange between policy, practice and research. Although SRA-E emphasises the European dimension and practical application in industry and Government, it also welcomes colleagues and perspectives from around the world.
How to submit
Abstracts will be accepted for symposia, as well as individual presentations and posters. Abstracts for all talks and posters must be submitted to the organising committee through the submission system by 22 January 2016. Oral presentations will last 20 minutes. Abstracts should be less than 400 words. The abstract submission system will require that abstracts are allocated to one or two of the themes listed above. Abstracts should note why the work is of importance or interest, methods used and results achieved or anticipated.
Authors whose abstracts have been accepted (whether or not part of a symposium) will be expected to attend the conference and present their work in person. All abstracts will be reviewed by the SRA-E Committee and other risk scholars. Upon acceptance authors will be notified by email. The conference program schedule will be available May 2016. Symposia: We strongly encourage submissions of symposium abstracts. A symposium is a conference session composed by 3 to 5 presentations/abstracts on a common topic, lasting for 90 minutes. In some cases symposia may be extended to last over 2 consecutive sessions, involving 7-9 speakers. One abstract should be submitted for each paper in the symposium noting the title of the symposium to which it is attached. A further abstract should be submitted by the symposium organiser which must contain:
- Title of symposium;
- Name of person (and his/her email address) responsible for planning and arranging the symposium;
- Short description of the topic and contents of the symposium (max 200 words);
- List of the presentations in the symposium (title of abstract and author names).
Authors whose abstracts have been accepted will be expected to attend the conference and present their work in person.
Abstracts and proposals will be reviewed by the Technical Program Committee. Upon acceptance the authors will be notified by email. The conference program schedule will be available mid-May 2016.
