Roundtable: Science and Policy at the 2019 Fifth World Congress on Risk

Room: Salon B   1:30 pm–3:00 pm

Chair(s): James H. Lambert

Sponsored by Risk and Development Specialty Group

The Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) Fifth World Congress on Risk will convene in Cape Town, South Africa, on May 6-8, 2019. The previous SRA World Congresses met in Singapore (2015), Sydney (2012), Guadalajara (2008), and Brussels (2003). With an overall theme Development and Risk, the Fifth World Congress will feature topics within and across domains: Applied risk management, decision analysis and risk, dose response, ecological risk assessment, economics and benefits analysis, emerging nanoscale materials, engineering and infrastructure, exposure assessment, foundational issues in risk analysis, microbial risk analysis, occupational health and safety, risk and development, risk communications, risk policy and law, and security and defense. The World Congress will engage top scientists and policymakers in discussion of topics of interest both for the Africa region and worldwide. Participants will come from universities, consulting, industry, government, and military. Symposia, roundtables, and individual abstracts are invited. Half-day and full-day continuing education workshops will complement the technical program. To build momentum and awareness of the event, participants in this roundtable will identify and lead discussion of key ideas in risk science and policy that will distinguish the 2019 event. The trends, successes, and relationships among the five World Congresses will be described. Audience participation will be encouraged.
