Venue: Takatsuki Muse campus, Kansai University, Takatsuki, Osaka

  http://www.kansai-u.ac.jp/English/about_ku/muse_map.html

Conference Theme: "Communication and collaboration in diversity of researches in East Asia”

We have variety of risk issues to be analyzed. Natural disasters, climate change, accidents by science and technology, chemicals, radiation, EMF (electromagnetic field), food safety, insurance, risk administration of governance and business, war, terrorism, consensus formation, and so on. Each risk issue cannot be solved with single traditional academic field. The solution will be brought through interdisciplinary approach. That was why Society for Risk Analysis was organized. SRA originally has diversity in academic fields, and we have decades of experience that we successfully made progress in risk researches with communication and collaboration in diversity of academic fields. The regional SRAs in Asia also have their diversity, that is, each of them has its specialty. Natural disaster research in China, toxicology in Korea, public health in Taiwan, and risk communication in Japan. The diversity in the regional SRAs in Asia will be a trigger of our success of fruitful risk researches with our communication and collaboration by helping and learning each other. We sincerely welcome all of you to the SRA Asia Conference 2018.

Shoji Tsuchida, Chair, SRA Ssia 2018

 

Keynote speaker will be Terje Aven, University of Stavanger, and President-elect of Society for Risk Analysis. In addition, Leaders of risk analysts from Korea, China, Taiwan and other countries will meet and share their ideas.

 

Alongside of the conference, we will hold a symposium entitled "Homeland Security and Risk Analysis: Under the military tension in Korean Peninsula", hosted by Kansai University. This is aimed to examine, from the viewpoint of risk analysis, what kind of response should be taken in preparation for the damage caused by war and terrorism as same as preparations for natural disasters. Participants of SRA Asia 2018 can participate here as well.
