Journal of Risk Research Conference Call for Papers

Risk & Uncertainty Conference: Contested Facts

Journal of Risk Research

We invite you to submit a structured abstract to the second Risk & Uncertainty Conference, focusing on the theme Contested Facts: how to communicate with the public and other stakeholders about controversial issues  where competing information exists about risks and uncertainties.

How to manage (uncertain) risks is important for e.g. the acceptance of new technologies. The aim of the conference is to stimulate high-quality international research on risk & uncertainty communication, and to inform and support policy in this field with the latest evidence-based approaches, for example in communicating to the general public about issues involving risks and uncertainties.     

We welcome a diverse range of submissions dealing with evidence-based risk and uncertainty communication across domains. The research must have clear implications for improving evidence-based risk and uncertainty communication. Abstracts must be no longer than 350 words, and will be considered for oral presentations as default. There will be room for poster presentations. 

The Risk & Uncertainty Conference will be held in Amsterdam, 12-14 June 2018. It is the follow-up of the successful inaugural meeting in Cambridge, 2017.

Submission Instructions

Please submit your structured abstract no later than March 8, 2018.

Participants will receive a notification of acceptance before April 1, 2018.
