INFORMS + SRA Conference: Decision Making for Emerging Risks
Tue. 22 June 2021 – Wed. 23 June 2021
Bringing together diverse expertise and experience, the Decision Analysis Society from the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) and the Decision Analysis and Risk Specialty Group (DARSG) in the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) are organizing two days of sessions on Decision Making for Emerging Risks for Tuesday, June 22 – Wednesday, June 23 from 9:30am – 2:30pm EST.
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 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.
