A virtual mini-conference
June 22-23, 2021
9:30 am - 2:30 pm Eastern Daylight Time


The Decision Analysis Society is pleased to announce a virtual mini-conference, coming this summer!  We are joining forces with the Decision Analysis and Risk Specialty Group in the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) to organize two days of sessions on Decision Making for Emerging Risks, bringing together the diverse expertise and experience from both of our organizations.

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need for tools and methods for new and not-yet-understood risks for which decisions need to be made under uncertainty and considering tradeoffs. In the light of emerging risks with less than complete data, how can decision makers still follow good decision practices and be able to incorporate new information on the risks as seemingly everything keeps changing?

Join us on June 22 and 23 to hear experts across many fields, including cybersecurity, infrastructure, food security and safety, public health, and others from academia, government, and industry, talk about their experiences developing novel models and approaches to support decision making on emerging risks.

Talks will be between 9:30 am and 2:30 pm Eastern Daylight Time to allow for live participation from a wide range of time zones.
Agenda is available here.

A virtual poster session is being organized for students who have work in this area they would like to present. A short video presentation of the slides/poster will be required. See more information.
