Conference Theme

The conference focuses on risk-management as a process through which private and public organizations deal with old and new risks connected to their activities. The attention is not only on risk measurement and management techniques, but also on how innovative models settled new goals, such as corporate social responsibility and compliance to human rights. All legal and compliance aspects related to risk management activities are a strong focus point of the conference as well. Both theoretical and practical papers are encouraged.

The Scientific Committee welcomes both individual papers, submitted to one of the tracks proposed, as well as proposals for fully-formed panels. Panel proposals should include at least 3 papers by scholars who have agreed in advance to participate and should identify one or two discussants, who may also be paper presenters. Parallel sessions will be scheduled over the second day. The Conference seeks to develop more effective tools and solutions for the future, and, consequently, papers on challenging traditional schemes, and adopting more multi-disciplinary approaches, are strongly encouraged.

The Conference will be organized in two days. The first day will feature a keynote address and a plenary sessions on the Conference theme. The second day will be devoted to the parallel sessions of papers and panels selected through this Call for Paper on the following topics:


  1. Financial risk management

  3. Legal issues in risk management
  4. Risk management in the public sector and in healthcare
  5. Environmental risk management


The paper should be written in English. Papers written in Italian may be accepted only in Track 3 – Legal issues in risk management. Authors are responsible for linguistic proof-reading of their papers. At least one of the Authors of each contribution must attend the Conference.
