SRA Europe 2009 Annual Meeting

The SRA Europe Meeting in 2009 will be held from 28th June – 1st July in Karlstad, Sweden. The conference theme "From the everyday to the extraordinary: challenges for risk analysis and management" will span across the broad range of risk issues from everyday risks to extraordinary events. The conference aims to facilitate exchange of experiences from different disciplines, fields and application areas.

The call for papers to the conference has resulted in a very positive response. Over 150 abstracts and a number of interesting proposals for minisymposia have been submitted and the review process is under way. We are pleased to see so many European countries represented, as well as contributions from around the globe.

The plenary sessions will include both keynote adresses and round table discussions. Confirmed speakers so far include Professor Paul Slovic, Professor Ortwin Renn, Professor Glynis Breakwell and Professor Åsa Boholm.

Registration for the conference will open on April 1st and full details will be available here on the website. Remember: SRA members who choose to be affiliated to the SRA-Europe Regional Organization (40 dollars) when they renew their 2009 membership, will receive a reduction equivalent to at least 50 dollars on the conference fee.
