Best Practices in Risk and Decision Analysis

November 1st - 2nd in New Orleans
Hilton New Orleans Riverside

For over a decade Palisade Risk Conferences have been “must attend” events for quantitative risk and decision analysis. We hope you’ll join us in New Orleans for this two-day event on November 1st & 2nd.

Conference Overview

The Palisade 2016 Risk Conference in New Orleans features features two full days of training and networking, with a multi-track schedule full of informative and useful sessions: three tracks will feature industry experts presenting real-world Case Studies on innovative approaches to risk and decision analysis using Palisade software. The fourth track features our ever-popular Software Presentations delivered by Palisade consultants, and features in-depth sessions that give you the tools to make your models more insightful and powerful than ever.

In addition, you’ll be able to meet one-on-one with Palisade consultants to get modeling advice – at no charge – in our Expert Sessions.

But it’s not all work: there will be plenty of opportunities to unwind and network with fellow professionals.

Present Your Case Study in New Orleans

If you have an interesting application of Palisade software which you would like to present, please send a short abstract to Austin Blank, at The closing date for abstracts to be submitted is August 31st, 2016. If you would like to submit an abstract but need more time, please let me know.

To help you prepare 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 three examples of highly rated presentations from previous Palisade Risk Conference.
