Transdisciplinary extreme risk modeling workshop

Analyzing the various approaches to modeling extreme risk across
the natural and social sciences

- September 7, 2018 -

Presentation

The notion of extreme risk and the extreme events that might arise from these risks is a theme that runs through several of the natural and social sciences. Prominent examples include earthquake modeling, modeling of forest fires, floods or extreme stock market risks. Events such as these have the potential to cause catastrophic damage to human society. Therefore, an integrative understanding of the nature and origin of such risks is likely to provide substantial benefits in designing better and more efficient risk management systems to anticipate and cope with these risks and to develop resilience strategies.

The aim of this workshop is to understand the common themes that explain extreme risks in both natural and social sciences and that revolve around power laws. One of the major issues is to analyze the origin of power laws that cut across the various disciplines.

This one-day workshop will take place on Friday September 7, 2018 at Skema Business School in Sophia Antipolis. The workshop is free (including lunch) and is opened to all UCA members. Participants must register before September 6.
