Risk, Perception, and Response — Cambridge, MA 

The Harvard Center for Risk Analysis (School of Public Health) is soliciting papers for its Risk, Perception, and Response Conference, to be held March 20-21, 2014.

How people react to scientific evidence of risk is mediated by many factors, including how risk information is perceived and communicated, how we react to social and cultural influences, and how choices are structured. Examples abound of situations where individuals’ risk perceptions lead them to act in ways that appear contrary to their own interests, overreacting to or neglecting risks. How can situations in which individuals are likely to respond poorly be identified, and what can be done to improve their responses?

Abstracts are due June 10, 2013. Each presenter will receive travel funding and an honorarium. Papers will be published.
