Dear colleagues,


I would greatly appreciate you circulating this call for conference abstracts through your networks. I am looking to increase the disciplinary breadth of the Society, so I welcome submissions from any field considering any aspect of risk (i.e.. perception, calculation). 


Society for Risk Analysis - Australia and New Zealand (SRA-ANZ)
9th Ann­ual Conference

Engaging Risk

Appleton Institute, Adelaide, South Australia 22-25 November 2016

Call for Abstracts

What do climate change, immunisation, refugees and animal testing have in common? They engage society in heated debate about risk, and they all involve tension between subjective and objective risk analysis. The experimental, natural and social sciences have all been called into question as stakeholders try to make sense of risk and reward in absolute terms as well as relative to their own work and lives. The 9th Annual Conference of the SRA-ANZ calls for papers relevant to risk and engagement from all academic disciplines and industries. We invite papers on:

· How can risk analysis be more engaging?
· What are the relationships between risk engagement, risk communication, decision-making and judgment.
· How do individuals, groups and entities engage with risk?
· How do various sciences engage with risk?
· How can risk analysis engage the subjective and objective dimensions of risk?
· What innovative applications, methodologies and technologies could make risk analysis more engaging?
· How can different populations be engaged in risk, risk analysis and risk management? (Including workers, managers, investors, planners, policy makers, government and the community)
· In what ways does engaging with risk involve engaging with reward?

We also invite the submission of papers on other aspects of risk, risk analysis and risk management.

Deadline for submission
Abstracts must be submitted on or before the 27th May 2016.
