Best Practices in Risk and Decision Analysis

2016 Events - Call for Papers

Upcoming dates in Autumn 2016:

  Event & Date Register  
  Edinburgh, September 22nd Register Now  
  Two tracks, with a special focus on Oil & Gas  
  Cape Town, November 10th Register Now  

Each event will feature real-world case studies about innovative and interesting approaches to risk and decision analysis by companies who use Palisade software. @RISK and the DecisionTools Suite are used by most of the world’s largest and most profitable companies to make better-informed decisions, and past events have featured presentations by the likes of Deloitte, KPMG, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Saudi Aramco, NASA, Cisco, Anglo American, Statoil, and Ernst&Young. It’s not all about the Fortune 500 companies though; many SMEs also use the tools, and there are always case studies from smaller organisations and consultancies that also employ probabilistic techniques.

Alongside the customer case studies, the Risk Conferences will feature free software sessions by Palisade staff to help you get the most out of new (and old) features of the software. In addition there will also be opportunities to speak to our consults to answer those troubling modelling questions and problems you might be facing. Along with the ever-popular networking opportunities during and after the events.

We know that some of your diaries get booked up months in advance so, please save the date if you’d like to attend one of the events.

To assist you with preparing a paper for submission, here is some additional information about the conference and the audience:

  • The audience will mostly want an in-depth look at how you are using the software to address your specific needs. Of course, no proprietary information should be presented, but the more details about how you approached your risk challenge, the better.
  • The most successful presentations normally show an actual spread sheet model using @RISK or the other Palisade tools. The data and labels don’t matter as much as the illustration of the approach.
  • The audience will be drawn from a wide range of job titles and industries. These are likely to include: cost estimators, risk managers, engineers, and project managers from sectors such as: insurance, finance, construction, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, mining, government, and many more.
  • Comments on the feedback forms from previous conferences include:

         "I like nuts-and-bolts presentations which show how people are doing advanced things.”
         "I would like to see more of how the models are set up and are presented to management."
  • Here are two examples of highly rated presentations from previous Palisade Risk Conference.
