Bernard Harris Memorial Symposium: Risk in the 21st Century
The 21st century has seen a revolution in big data analytics. Though there have been methodological advances analyzing these rich data sets, risk assessment science has often lagged behind these advances. To bring together the top minds within statistics and risk analysis communities and to cross pollinate ideas between practitioners in different research areas, the American Statistical Association’s Section on Risk Analysis is having a symposium in honor of our first chair, Bernard Harris, at the Institute of Advanced Analytics at North Carolina State University May 10th and 11th 2018. At this two day symposium, participants will be challenged by leaders on diverse topics such as toxico/environmental-, economic-, terrorism/defense-, climate-, and genetic disease- risk. These speakers will present on current challenges and stimulate discussion among the participants.
Focused breakout sessions will be scheduled allowing collaboration with other scientists. To promote interest in risk analysis, student discounts will be given and a contributed poster session will allow all researchers to present their work while discussing challenges. Though this conference focuses on risk analysis, it should be of interest to any quantitative minded researcher interested in big data analytics. Mark your calendars and plan to attend!
Registration Begins January 15th
