The 5th International Conference on Risk Analysis and Crisis Response (RACR-2015)
June 1-3, 2015, Tangier, Morocco
THEME: Emerging Economies, Risk and Development, and Intelligent Technology
With the U.S. economic recovery and ease the debt crisis in Europe, more experience
and knowledge in risk analysis and crisis response would be summarized. It is very
important for emerging economies to avoid the same risk and crisis. Meanwhile, the
changing world always is uncertain. Various risks exist everywhere, endless crises
always happen. Risk and development are coexisting. The world needs more intelligent
technologies to analyze risks and govern crises in high-efficiency and low-cost. RACR
provides a unique international forum to discuss these issues from a scientific and
technical point of view and also in terms of management, services or usages.
RACR, launched by the Risk Analysis Council of China Association for Disaster Prevention
in 2007 and taken over by SRA-China since 2011, is a series of biennial international
conferences on risk analysis, crisis response, and disaster prevention for specialists
and stakeholders. RACR-2015 in Tangier, Morocco, will be the fifth conference in these
series, following the successful RACR-2007 in Shanghai (China), RACR-2009 in
Beijing (China), RACR-2011 in Laredo (USA) and RACR-2013 in Istanbul (Turkey).
Tangier is the white city between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, where the Mediterranean
Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean off Cape Spartel, it is the Economic Capital of the north of Morocco.
The history of Tangier is very rich due to the historical presence of many civilizations and cultures
starting from the 5th century BC. Between the period of being a Berber settlement and then a
Phoenician town to the independence era around the 1950s, Tangier was a refuge for many
cultures. In 1923, Tangier was considered as having international status by foreign colonial
powers, and became a destination for many European and American diplomats, spies, writers
and businessmen. Tangier has always fascinated artists. Eugène Delacroix, Henri Matisse,
Paul Bowles, Tennessee Williams, Jean Genet… the list can be continued. Tangier retains
its powerful charm to this day…
