SoRU Newsletter #7


Dear colleagues,

Welcome to the seventh edition of the SoRU Newsletter.

This is our first edition in this year of 2014, which has started with some novelties in the Research Network on Risk and Uncertainty. Therefore the first highlight of the newsletter, namely, the greetings from the new Chair, Anna Olofsson, and the new Vice-Chair, Adam Burgess, who were elected last year at the ESA Conference. As editors of the newsletter, we would like to welcome the new chairs, and also thank Patrick Brown, who had been not only an excellent chair to the Network but also a great contributor to this newsletter, always engaged in sharing information among the members, which is one of the purposes of a network. A second highlight in this edition is the full program of the ISA World Congress.

There are the usual sections on book releases and new articles, as well as call for papers and conferences. We would like to invite you all to send contributions to these sections, as well as any commentary piece you may want to share with the other members of the network.
Last but not least, this might be the last newsletter having Renata as editor. I (Renata) would like to thank you all from the risk network for the exchange in these almost two years since we decided to launch the newsletter. Now, it is time for me to move on to new projects, and to leave room for new comers. My goodbye is also a call for potential candidates to replace my task. If you are interested, please contact Martyn ([email protected]).

Warmest wishes,
Renata and Martyn
