The conference, on the theme of “Analysis and Governance of Risks beyond Boundaries,” will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, and hosted by Istanbul Technical University. Deadline for submission of abstracts is January 31, 2014.
The special theme of the conference was chosen to emphasize that risks are able to travel through the virtual boundaries labeled as “regions”, “territories” and “countries,” to promote recent scientific novelties in risk reduction and to enhance inter-disciplinary approaches to develop new strategies in both evaluating and coping with well-known and less-known risks.
The SRA-Europe Conference in 2014 is open to all interested researchers and experts in the various fields of risk analysis. Industry representatives, governmental bodies and relevant public and private institutions are welcomed. Graduate students are also encouraged to participate.
A Joint Special Symposium of SRA-E and ERSA (European Regional Science Association) on “Resilience of Regions in the Face of Risks” aims to provide a platform for discussion of how the resilience of regions can be improved in the face of risks, understood from an interdisciplinary perspective. This Joint Special Symposium also aims to initiate a collaboration between the two networks that may lead to further joint activities in the future.
