Call for presentations: The Society for Risk Analysis, Asia Conference 2018
We have variety of risk issues to be analyzed. Natural disasters, climate change, accidents by science and technology, chemicals, radiation, EMF (electromagnetic field), food safety, insurance, risk administration of governance and business, war, terrorism, consensus formation, and so on. Each risk issue cannot be solved with single traditional academic field. The solution will be brought through interdisciplinary approach. That was why Society for Risk Analysis was organized. SRA originally has diversity in academic fields, and we have decades of experience that we successfully made progress in risk researches with communication and collaboration in diversity of academic fields. The regional SRAs in Asia also have their diversity, that is, each of them has its specialty. Natural disaster research in China, toxicology in Korea, public health in Taiwan, and risk communication in Japan. The diversity in the regional SRAs in Asia will be a trigger of our success of fruitful risk researches with our communication and collaboration by helping and learning each other. We sincerely welcome all of you to the SRA Asia Conference 2018.

Webinar: Preparing to Deliberate Evidence on Benefits and Risks Posed by the Microbiota of Milks
Scientific advances over the past decade are transforming our knowledge of the natural microbes of breast and bovine milks. Unexpected results from culture-independent studies of milk microbiomes are raising questions about assumptions of past risk analyses for breast milk banks, food safety regulators, and milk consumers around the world. In ‘milk wars’ around the world, the opposing positions are often stated as definitive beliefs for all time, not as evidence-based communications that merit further deliberation as science advances. Understandably, consumers around the world are confused by conflicting statements about benefits and risks in the media and from regulators.
