Conferences and Presentations

The Risk Assessment Resources Team regularly participated and presented at the International Society of Risk Analysis (SRA) Annual Meetings (view a few of the presentations below) and at the Midwestern Risk Assessment Forum. The team also coordinated with SRA in co-sponsoring workshops on Probabilistic Risk Assessments. The team worked closely with all federal partners, including EPA’s Annual Science Forum, DOE’s risk-based end state development, and DOD’s work on ARAMS model development.
